The Corner Store Café, located on Sylvan Street in Toowong, is a little slice of hipster heaven. Built within a restored colonial cottage, it's cute and quaint and even boasts its own herb and veggie garden in which men in plaid shirts and skinny jeans, bearing pompadours and/or quiffs, freely roam taking photos of themselves with their iphones. It's a café of loose etiquette, the staff wear normal clothes, not a hint of a uniform here, and recall your orders off the top of their sometimes quaffed heads perfectly. It has the atmosphere of New Farm or Tenerife, maybe even upmarket West End, but is located in the heart of Toowong, bringing a little class to the western suburbs.

Waffles with raspberry coulis

Open 7 days, 7am-3pm, the Corner Store Café does your standard breakfast and lunch menu items with a touch of gourmet and class. Their coffee is remarkably good, though a little cool, and the atmosphere is certainly refreshing and perfect for those lazy Sunday mornings. If you have a sweet tooth, the waffles with raspberry coulis comes highly recommended and their very simple, perhaps even rustic, poached eggs on toast with a selection of sides satisfy last night's one too many champers perfectly.

A word of warning though, do go early to beat the rush or, if you have a party of five or more, reserve a table to ensure you snag yourself a glimpse at this lovely establishment.
