Charlotte’s Corner

Charlotte’s Corner is located within the Blackburn South shops and I assume is called this because it’s on the corner of Charlotte Street... A lovely modern cafe that definitely fills a gap in the area unless of course you are after some fast food for lunch... Exposed brick walls and a black ceiling give a nice edge to the cafe that has some enticing food on offer. We managed to get a table after a couple of unsuccessful drive-bys (or walk-bys in this case). The Charlotte’s Corner Burger ($18.00) with free range beef, organic fried egg and bacon, caramelised onion, tasty cheese, house-made tomato relish and aioli with rosemary salted chips was very tempting but I did not think I had the large appetite today required for this dish. The Buttermilk Pancakes ($14.00) with palm sugar butter, vanilla ice-cream, and Canadian maple syrup sounded a bit too sickly. If it had some fruit to cut back the sweet on sweet then maybe I would have chosen this. Instead, I went with something from the breakfast menu. The Sweet Corn Fritters with avocado salsa topped with poached eggs ($16.00). Two large corn fritters with an avocado and corn salsa arrived and certainly had the potential to be an excellent dish. My fritters were rather nude in colour and perhaps the addition of corn also in the salsa was a little too much corn... Anyway, just a few tweaks and they are on to a winner. My friend chose a Toasted Pressed Pide ($12.00). This was filled with turkey, camembert, cranberry, and spinach and was accompanied by a fancy greek-style salad. Finally a cafe offering a side salad that you actually want to eat! This was very yummy and I without a doubt will be ordering a pide next time I’m here. Our lattes ($3.50) were very nice and the staff were wonderfully attentive in ensuring that everything was to our liking. The friendly service here was faultless. Tea for One is $3.50 but tea for two is $5 making a great value choice if you are lucky enough to have a friend that enjoys the same type of tea as you... The cakes also looked nice and homemade and would be great with a warming cup of tea. Oh well... next time.
