So there’s been a lot of press about “The Corner” McDonald’s Cafe and a lot of it is written with the “oh we can’t believe Maccas is pulling this stealth cafe” write up. So when we rocked up; we see the words McCafe plastered on their logo and its really doesn’t even warrant an article as so much of it was click bait rubbish but yeah… here we go.

Its a nice looking venue in a well, McDonald’s aren’t really hideous looking to begin with sort of way.

Maybe if this wasn’t Newtown and we weren’t surrounded by heaps of great cafes. Check out Brewtown and Campos

You can get a protein+one of these salad – lentils/couscouse/quinoa – its $10 so its kinda good value and looks decent enough.

We ordered these florentines… and the worst espresso we’ve ever had. Not sure which of the blends they used. (lol single O). They even write that there’s a McCafe Blend.

So that’s it. Its a McCafe alright. They even have their maccas macarons. Mmmm.  The highlight was seeing Love Dem Apples there. It can’t be faulted for trying to do new things but then this is McDonalds. When was the last time you said to your mates “let’s go brunch at Maccas”. This isn’t going to change things.

    I guess they’ll keep their RPA and Sydney Uni clientele but not attract customers looking for a good cafe.
