At the intersection of Brand and Cromwell Streets in Glenwood, is Durban’s favourite Corner Café. Started a few years ago by chef extraordinaire, Anna Savage and restaurateur veteran, Judd Campbell, the little neighbourhood eatery has gone from strength to strength over the years, redefining and refining itself into its current guise, that of an eco-restaurant.
For the last few years, The Corner Café has been in Judd’s hands, and the green transition has taken place under his lead. In short, The Corner Café aspires to be a model of sustainability as far as possible, whilst still serving the best coffee in town.
The Café menu is seasonal, with perennial favourites like Marmite Dippy Eggs and rainy day soups. Coffee is a big deal too; in fact it’s more like a full-blown love affair. The Love Coffee blend was specially sourced and blended by Judd in conjunction with Durban roastery Colombo, and comprises a mix of fair trade Burundi Kavungangoma, Malawi Mapanga Estate and Ethiopian Yirgacheffe beans.
