Drawing inspiration from the vibey character of the neighbourhood, the creators of The Korner aspire to do more than serve great food. From its inception, the restaurant has been designed as a space to wine, dine, hold meetings, grab-and-go express, satisfying the need for an easy, sociable breakfast to dinner option.

Long-time restaurateur and Esus-Group Director, Gilles Blanc, was driven by a strong sense of place and purpose to create a restaurant built around fresh, sustainable ingredients, providing the best comfort food and local hangout.

An express bar will open early to serve morning commuters great coffees in partnership with Truth Coffee as well as grab- and-go breakfasts and lunches, a mere stone’s throw from the iconic Green Market Square, surrounding hotels and corporates.

Breakfast service will begin early and run through till 12pm daily, seven days a week, with a menu offering a premium meat selection, salads, burgers, pizza and loaded fries with more than 6 options and 13 topping choices, including smoked mozzarella, bacon, prawns and avocado. All of the ingredients down to the condiments are made in-house or sourced locally.

A full bar with an in-house mixologist will serve creative cocktails, an array of craft beers from Devil’s Peak Brewery and a selection of local wines.

The dinner menu puts a fresh spin on comfort food, including:

  • The Babelas Crazy Loaded Fries: Loaded cheese sauce, mushroom, blue cheese, gravy and truffle oil
  • The Korner Burger: Hash brown, maple dipped bacon, smoked mozzarella, BBQ aioli and fried egg
  • The Tomahawk (for 2) : Rib-eye on the bone, flame grilled, basted in our signature BBQ sauce our house seasoning salt with fries
  • Chicken and Waffles: Buttermilk fried chicken wings, buttery waffles with authentic maple syrup and American gravy

Free fiber WiFi is offered in a comfortable 130 seater, ground-floor community space overlooking the St Georges Mall and Mandela Rhodes Place.
