Stop 2 on our Western food safari was Cornershop. A Yarraville favourite, Cornershop is teeming with local brunch-ers on the weekend and we were lucky to secure a table in the sunny courtyard after a fairly short wait.
A comprehensive menu did not help our indecisiveness but I think it’s pretty hard to go wrong here. A dish of Spanish baked beans on sourdough was hearty and more-ish. It’s well worth ordering the optional fried chorizo to go with the sweet, smoky sauce.
With some items from the breakfast dishes also appearing as sides, the choice is made easier for those wanting to try a bit of everything. Two savvy diners hedged their bets and added braised beans and plump, sauteed seasonal mushrooms to glossy, herbed scrambled and perfectly poached eggs.
Coffee was also well received, a bold blend by Coffee Supreme, although having been back a few times, it can be rather variable.
So, another winner in the West; loved the simple, tasty breakfast dishes, generous servings and good ambiance of the cafe.
