A cafe for all!

Hi there, my name is Gina. I am a single mum of three beautiful girls and the owner of The Corner Hideout.

When I say I’m the owner, I mean that only in the financial sense. The humble little cafe is owned by the amazing staff and the loyal customers and locals that make it what it is…

So what is it?

It's a place where we all know your name.

A place where locals meet for a general chit-chat. It’s a quiet spot for you to lounge in or a space that is full of energy and laughter.

It’s the perfect spot to grab a cuppa and stroll by the sea. Its size may be small but it works for the space. In a world where we have become so isolated it’s a rarity to find a spot where we are all engaged in conversation and laughter. It’s a place where you can bring your four-legged friend.

We love our beautiful cafe pooches and delight in giving them all treats and cuddles as they profusely wag their tails.

Friendly customers, Chelsea cafe

Where our customers are the heartbeat!

Our loyal customers and locals are the heartbeat of this little Chelsea cafe. I am so grateful and proud of our beautiful community where there is always a conversation you can engage in and a social meetup happening.

And then there’s the food and coffee.

Made with
Chelsea love

We pride ourselves in making all our beautiful cafe food and make damn good coffee. You won't find these delights anywhere else and they are all made with love. So please take time to come and see us at The Corner Hideout. We would love for you to be a part of our humble little cafe by the sea.

Meet our lovely staff!

They say it takes a village.. and here at the corner hideout there are no truer words!! Without this team of beautiful people our little cafe wouldn’t have the sense of family and community that it does. Every member brings their own wonderful energy and personality and you just can’t replicate that anywhere.
