McDonald's Australia Launches Healthier-Food Cafe

McDonald's Australia quietly launched a cafe called The Corner this past week. There are no Big Macs on the menu.

There are some things as predictable as the onward march of time. Cats will always be jerks. Rents will always be high. McDonald's will always sell their signature burgers and fries. That last one? Maybe not as set in stone as once thought if this new Australian cafe has anything to say about it.

McDonald's Australia quietly launched a cafe called The Corner, which is filled to the brim with healthy options. Also, there isn't a Big Mac to be had, which is great news for fans of health and horrible news for fans of that Big Mac song. They do serve burgers, but they are locally sourced and healthier (in other words, they won't stave off mold for fifty years.)

It's being billed as a sub-division of McCafe and that clown Ronald is nowhere in sight.
