My Daily Bean: Cornersmith in Marrickville

Oh this is a cute cafe! I wish it was easier to get to or this was my local I could walk to. On busy Illawarra road it is difficult to find parking.

Serving up coffee from Mecca brand (the owner used to work at Mecca branch in King street Sydney). It’s good, strong but not bitter.

What is unique is that each week the cafe has a pickling day. On the board this week was Mulberry & Rhubarb jam, and Apple Chutney. They also sell their wares. I picked up a jar of marmalade.

The food is wholesome and delicious. Like kale and quinoa salad. Roman and broadbeans w housemade feta and salmogrilio salsa on toast. Its not your usual fare. Although the corned beef sandwich was a let down – needs to be a bit more than a thin sliver of beef which was mostly fat.

The fit out is very retro and nice music.

Coffee: 4/5
Ambiance: 4/5
Newspapers: yes
Gluten free: some items

About Soul Kitchen Blog

Welcome to Soul Kitchen Blog. Sure food ultimately is fuel for the body but made with love is so much more and truly nourishes the soul. As cliche as it sounds, life really is too short to eat bad food and drink bad wine. I have a passion for cooking and a love of good food. I am committed to my quest of searching for fabulous recipes that just so happen to be gluten free. In recent years I discovered that I have intolerance to gluten and whilst its changed my eating habits somewhat, I refuse to allow it to limit my choices to eat well or make those that I cook for feel that they are missing out on anything. My mandate is simple... Feed the body and nourish the soul. I look forward to sharing my journey with you ....
