Very enjoyable. Food and coffee is very good, Atmosphere is really good. Staff friendly and helpful. We have become regulars since accidentally finding it during a walk around Richmond.

I visited the Corner Store for the first time at lunchtime today, and had meant to do so for a long time. Unfortunately my expectations were seriously let down. We ordered drinks relatively quickly, but then were ignored - no drinks, no one arriving to take food orders. Finally (after at least half an hour) we went to the counter... More

Great feel about the place as soon as you walk in. Friendly staff and a great menu. Had the middle eastern breakfast. Will go back for again soon.

I came here before an Australian Rules football game, as Rowena Corner Store is right by the MCG. It has a vintage charm to it, with shelves stacked full of imported food, from Italy, Spain, and the U.K., as well as classic Australian chocolate goods. And the food here is tasty too - BLT's, eggs on toast, nothing special -... More

After coming across a Seven Deadly Sins Thickshake on Instagram I knew I had to try one for myself! We visited on a Saturday afternoon - it was fairly quiet which was nice and the service was excellent. It's a really unique and quirky place and is a must visit in Melbourne. I loved the fact it was an old... More

Took the kids for a morning hot chocolate. The coffee was great and although we didn't eat there the food looked fabulous. Great atmosphere, a bit quirky and fun

The locals know about The Rowena Corner Store. Not sure about those in the baskets of the hot air balloons drifting by up there... I'm in the process of discovering its hidden secrets. Chocolaty flavoured cappuccino number one has already prepared the way for fruit toast. - three slices, with plenty of jam. I spread things somewhat heavy handedly on... More

Great friendly cafe with yummy brunch offerings. Coffee is very good. Dogs welcome out the front, and very pleased with their bacon! Service is good, but often a wait of 30 mins or more for the food, but is a relaxed chill out place so you do wait. Good for people watching.

This cafe is loved in our neighbourhood. The staff and owner are delightful - always great smiley service. Especially love the french toast recently and the BLT always. Best coffee in Richmond - strong, smooth and flavourful, never bitter. They also do amazing milkshakes which look like a dessert experience - children and adults love them.
