The Corner Cafe, Lamb Road, Guwahati

by | May 4, 2016 | Reviews

If you’re around Guwahati Club, you must try The Corner Café. It proudly boasts of having the most unique menu in town and at surprisingly affordable prices too.

Nestled in the heart of the city, The Corner Café lies on Lamb Road, just off the busy neighborhood of Guwahati Club. Having completed 2 years successfully, the team is now all geared up to revamp it’s entire menu and interiors and introduce new dishes that the city has not seen before.

While these new additions are nothing innovative or inventive by any means, they do provide a fresh feel to the overall menu and gives you some enticing options to choose from.

As we walked in, we couldn’t help but notice the smart and minimalistic interiors. The walls draped in tuscan red, the dark brown furniture, the sporty wall decals and the wooden flooring, all indicative of the modern young crowd that the café allures.

This 30 cover eatery offers a great fare inspired by Italian, American and Continental cuisines in addition to the ever-so-popular ‘desi’ renditions of Chinese food. It also provides great breakfast and snacking options. The atmosphere here is laid back and casual, perfect for catching up with old friends or a casual date.

When they say it’s a Cheese Omelet, they actually mean business. The Omelet is certainly not for the faint-hearted or the weight-watchers. Soft and fluffy omelet with cheese oozing out served with mashed potatoes, grilled tomatoes and toasted bread makes it a perfect dish to start your day with.

We also loved their Italian Baked Egg and Loco Moco Rice Burger which were fresh additions to the menu. However, the BBQ Pulled Pork fries were clearly the show stealer of the afternoon. Being an ardent pork lover, I instantly fell in love with this one. Soft, succulent pulled pork, sautéed in BBQ sauce, covered with French fries and mozzarella and topped with a generous amount of mayonnaise; this monster will definitely make you come back for more.

The Bread soup bowl was a round bread bowl filled with herbed tomato soup and grilled cheese. The soup was yummy and kept us craving for more. We also loved the meat sliders served alongside but felt that the bread bowls should have been a tad crispier and the croutons in the soup should have been done away with.

The Mushrooms on Toast were a bit of a disaster. There was no or very minimal use of herbs and spreading tomato ketchup on the toasted bread was a bit too naïve for my liking. We would have loved to see a flavored sour cream instead and a bit more use of herbs.

Next came the Deep Fried Deviled Eggs and the Pancakes. The deviled eggs were crisp and delicious. The pancakes too were well prepared but had a very minimalistic choice of toppings and were a bit chewy. We would have loved to see more topping options for this one.

They say, a man is guided by his tummy and honestly I would have gone on and on if only my tummy was not so stuffed. Servings at The Corner Café are quite generous and the staff are amicable and helpful, though a bit of pepping up is required.

The Corner Café offers discounts to students on weekdays (11:00 AM – 2:00 PM) which along with the affordable pricing makes it a favorite hangout for nearby college goers. All you have to do is carry a valid student ID proof and you’re eligible for a discount. Unlike most businesses that target students, we haven’t seen this café compromise on the quality or serving size.

With the entrepreneur, Mr. Abhishek Baruwa at the helm of affairs and his meticulous involvement in everything, we’re pretty confident that this café will continue to outshine the cafeteria space in Guwahati, and in case you thought, we’re not the only ones who think so. The Corner Café, Guwahati, post it’s launch in 2014, has been awarded the ‘Best Cafeteria’ award by Guwahati Food Awards for two consecutive years (2015 & 2016) and is now getting padded up to pull off a hat-trick.

The recent menu and interior revamp has been a success and we recommend this place for the unique fare it has to offer. So, if you’re looking to munch into something you haven’t tasted before or want to have something that isn’t on every other café’s menu, The Corner Café is the place for you.
