|Cornerstone Cafe location in 1988|
I have lived in Victoria again since 2004 but I am very rarely in Fernwood, there are very few reasons for me to go there. I may go there more now I have been to Aubergine Fine Foods.
The whole experience at the Cornerstone Cafe was rather hit and miss:
- Some of the staff were great, some of the staff exuded attitude, bad enough to make me feel unwelcome
- The coffee was passable but not that much better than even Tim Hortons
- It was great to see they made their own ice tea, unfortunately is bland and without any depth. It needed more fragrance - one of the reasons Earl Grey tea makes such a good ice tea - and it did not have the hit of citrus all good ice tea needs.
- The turkey panini was decent enough, but not at the price. Turkey tends to be the most boring meat out there when it is used as a sandwich filling. The panini could have used a better mayo and more cranberry.
I really did want to like the place because it is a project of the Fernwood NRG. They are the best thing to have happened to Fernwood community and social services in many, many years. Unfortunately I would only be liking it for charity reasons and not because it was a good eating experience.
