The Corner Store has recently opened in the flourishing Melbourne suburb of Mentone, with an eye catching new fit-out and launch party to kick things off. The newly revamped hotspot has brought a breath of fresh bay air into this south-eastern suburb, increasingly known for its quality, charm and family living.
Having undergone a major refurbishment, The Corner Store is a modern take on the classic 1950’s-style all day diner. The Corner Store caters for everyone from early risers, brunchers and lunchers, to afternoon grazers and late night suppers, seven days a week. Open from 7.30am every day, The Corner Store boasts everything from delicious wholesome food to great coffee, cocktails, tap beer, an expansive wine list and an almost as expansive milkshake menu.
Having witnessed the changing face of Mentone, with more families, more city workers and a greater demand for eating out options to suit all schedules, Head Chef Jeremy Duxbury has designed a menu to reflect this.
“We are one of the only all-day eateries in the area which means you can always get something to graze on no matter what time of day it is. If it’s early it could be anything from the all day breakfast menu, a sandwich through to a steak for lunch or market fish of the day or pasta for dinner. The bar menu is quite extensive as is our milkshake menu, and of course there is great coffee,” says Jeremy.
The all-day grazing menu is a thoughtfully modern take on some of the classics. Highlights include 12 hour Pulled Pork Roll with crackling, Crispy Chicken Taco with tequila compressed watermelon and the Crispy Chicken Kimchi Burger on a black brioche bun.
Owners: With over 40 years of combined pub, bar and restaurant experience in Australia, the U.K. and U.S., former Red Rock Venues Area Business Manager Damien Jones and business partner Tim Jones (no relation) took over the space in 2016. After an eight month long evaluation the pair decided to give the offering a complete overhaul with a new look and feel in line with the changing needs of the area.
The Corner Store is open 7 days 7:30am until late.
1 Swanston Street, Mentone VIC 3194.
