Corner is a new cafe which combines a casual dining experience in a contemporary designed space and offers a global menu that caters to a wide variety of palates.
The concept, by Spoon & Fork, is the brand’s first quick-service restaurant. The popular brand is a family run business, well known for their contribution to the Asian restaurant scene having started their first Japanese restaurant called Prince Japanese Steakhouse back in 1996.
Corner caters to a wide variety of people through the design of the space, seating variety and most especially the menu which features both Asian and European options and it’s licensed to sell liquor.
Corner is located on along Dundas near Dixie in a space which had to be rezoned, gutted and completely renovated. The large but cozy space includes a lounge area by a fireplace, a high top communal table, booth seating and tables throughout the resto.
It’s an ideal spot to hang out with friends and family and with 120 seats it makes it easy to cater to larger groups. For the road warriors and work-from-home types, the free wifi and multi-ethnic menu make it a great spot to get some work done.
Food Menu: Corner’s Asian and European menu includes a wide variety of options that include freshly baked pastries (croissants, scones, muffins, brownies,donuts, danishes, cinnamon buns); desserts (French macarons, tarts, cupcakes, cakes); all day breakfast (benedicts, omelettes, breakfast sandwiches, pancakes, french toast); sushi trays (made fresh daily and on-site).
The Corner Bakes section of the menu includes Italian dishes and pasta (mac & cheese, lasagna, chicken alfredo, spaghettini pomodoro/Bolognese/meatball, seared pork chop, chicken parmesan, peppercorn beef).
