Review: Cornersmith (Marrickville)

Despite discouraging comments from people I know (“it’s good but too healthy for me” – my boss, “it’s okay but I prefer X” – a female foodie friend, “it was nice but we had to order two breakfasts each” – male friends) I was determined to give Cornersmith a go. The opportunity arose when my sis was in the area, and we joined her for brunch.

As most people know by now, this is not only a cafe that focuses on sustainability, seasonality, etc., but also a picklery, meaning they make (and teach people how to make) a variety of preserves.

They did not have any cold drip coffee but offered me filtered coffee on ice which was almost as good.

We shared a Ploughman’s plate with pasture raised ham, Mattra Cheddar, stone fruit, beet relish, pickles, Pepe Saya butter & gluten-free bread (normally comes with sourdough) that was awesome.

We also ordered soft poached Archerfield Farm eggs with (gluten-free) toast & smoked onion relish, to which we added red cabbage salad with pickled corn, cucumber, chillies & grapefruit dressing and pastured raised ham. Quite a mouthful… a delicious mouthful BTW.
