Hanging out in Sydney’s inner west (well, Petersham to be precise), Brighton the Corner is your answer to local feasts and coffee. The menu offers a gourmet twist on brekky classics and don’t worry because we’re about to explain exactly what that means. Think dishes of chorizo poached eggs with red pepper relish, rösti and rocket leaves, and their special wrap, aptly named the wrapture—creamy scrambled eggs with crispy bacon bits and shallots all wrapped up in a warm tortilla.
If you pop in for lunch, you can’t go wrong with a signature Brighton bun which is basically their take on a bacon and egg roll. Or you could go all out with the classic cheeseburger stacked with a single juicy beef patty, cheese, tomato, crisp lettuce, pickles, bacon, onion chutney aaaaand house made dirty sauce. Alternatively, keep it clean with the vegetarian burg’—a chickpea and lentil fritter on a bed of grated carrot and beetroot pickle, topped with honey yoghurt.
Burgers aside, the lunch offerings also include the crispy fried chicken wings and we all know that fried chicken is life, so listen up. These bad boys are served with a generous amount of pickles and comeback sauce; or if you’re feeling particularly healthy, there’s the chilli tuna salad, with spiced tuna (duh), tomato, spinach and crumbled feta.
We know you’re wondering, so here it is. The beans are by Campos and it’s obviously their locally roasted ‘superior’ blend, because this place doesn’t do anything by halves.
