On The Corner Espresso, Prahran

Well I guess it all started the first time I went through the second grade. I caught my reflection in a spoon while I was eating my cereal, and I remember thinking "wow, you're ridiculously good looking, maybe you could do that for a career."

Next time Derek Zoolander comes to Melbourne I feel sure he'll be spotted having an Orange Mocha Frappuccino at On The Corner Espresso, 160 Greville St, Prahran, Tel +61 3 9533 8888. It's the perfect spot to check out all the other ridiculously good-looking people prancing up and down Greville Street. Or, you can stare at your spoon, admire your own really, really good looks, and practise Blue Steel.

If your diet permits, I can highly recommend the corn fritters. Three tasty fritters with plenty of corn and a touch of spice, served with just-crispy bacon, a generous amount of tomato-avocado salsa, a side of chili jam, and topped with fresh rocket.

Other tempting items include vanilla porridge with caramelised apples; "village style" baked beans; a Breaky Wrap filled with omelette, potato, cheese, chorizo and tomato chutney; and ham & eggs served with sweet paprika, sea salt, cracked pepper and toasted honey whole-wheat soldiers.

But what vain, stupid, and incredibly self-centered male model could turn down a BABE... bacon, avocado, poached egg with a touch of soy mayo on a toasted bagel?

16/20 "nice salsa"

Blue Steel corn cakes? No Hansel Hollandaise for Eggs Benedict that can't read but really wanna learn to do other stuff really good too? Looks OK - quite a large serve of the pig on the side.

Regularly try on the corner - at least twice a month and usually have the Bert.

|Bacon, eggs rocket, tomato with a herb mayo..|

Went through a rough patch with poor service and food for a month or so but I think things are much better now with the BErt returning to it's usual style..

Mrs always has the porridge which is consistenyly good and you cant' beat the bread from Glicks Bakers..
