Cornerstone & Co., Hampton

Ah, the excitement of hunting for food in an entirely new suburb! I've never been to Hampton - in fact, I don't think I've ever explored any of the southern suburbs before. It was tough to make a decision about where to eat when everything was new to us but we finally settled on Cornerstone & Co.

What's exciting about Cornerstone & Co. is that they serve Japanese and Italian fusion dishes - you definitely don't see that around much. While they are mainly a café, they are starting to offer monthly dinner degustations from what I understand from their Facebook page.

Our drink of the day was the purple berry cleanse, a combo of acai berry, dragonfruit, strawberry, banana and coconut water. We seldom see dragonfruit in Australia, much less served in a juice so we wanted to give it a try! The banana taste was the strongest but it was a very refreshing and delicious juice overall.

There was no doubt I was going to have the okonomiyaki fritters. The fritters were light and fluffy and I thought the addition of the poached egg and bacon worked well to turn it into a breakfast dish. However, the ultimate disappointment was that the poached egg was quite overcooked. You can imagine my dismay when I cut it open and there was no yolk spilling out! I also thought they could have been more generous with the sauce.

Hubby had the baked chicken cacciatore special which he enjoyed. I had a bite of the cheesy omelette and I have to say it was delicious!

Although there were a few things that I thought could be improved on, it wasn't an unpleasant experience. They serve dishes that are just too interesting to pass up! I wouldn't mind coming back to try their lunch menu if I get the chance to go again.
