This week we decided to follow our concierge’s advice and try out the Cornersmith Cafe. Cornersmith Cafe is a renowned local Sydney Cafe located in Marrickville and a 18 minute drive away from Mercure Sydney.
Cornersmith Cafe is renowned for their seasonal menu and their inventive use of use locally sourced produce from small scale growers. Cornersmith has a rustic, homemade feel where all sauces and pickles served with their meals are made on site.
You may need to put your name down on the chalk board at the entrance and wait for a table but we think it is well worth the wait.
Once seated, you will be living like a true inner-west Sydneyean; experiencing delicious handcrafted meals with fresh ingredients such as raw beetroot salad served with a range of pickles.
Our recommendation is definitely the Ploughmans Board which features a delicious array of pickles, pasture raised ham, Mattra Cheddar, apples and crisp cucumber. Who would have thought to have cheddar with apples and pickles? Simply delicious!
The other Ploughmans plated featured grilled eggplant topped with a pomegranate, fennel and dill salad with a yogurt dip.
We are pretty sure if you are a foodie, you won’t be disappointed! It also is a great place to visit if you would like to take something home for your loved ones! All the pickles and jams that you try on the menu are available on the shelf to take home with you.
Until next time, we hope you pickle it up!
