New Location

We had breakfast this morning at the new location. Much larger than old place, and a nice waiting area inside. The staff is still friendly and the food is almost like it was except I ask for my hash browns to be well done and they were still raw. I will give them another try and hopefully they will... read more

This was my first visit to the popular Corner Cafe (there was still a wait for seating after 2pm for a weekend lunch). The interior is bright with an automotive theme. The inside seating included (spacious) counter seating as well as seating in a waiting area. The menu consists of standard diner type options, breakfast dishes, hot and cold sandwiches,... More

Love this place, the ambience of an old time "greasy spoon", but in a good way. Busy place, so get there early or wait. Great service, with a smile, and large portions. Chicken fried steak was excellent, and I've had them all over the country. Hope they maintain their style when they move. Visited on our way through town on... More

I went here after reading other reviews and it did not disappoint one bit! I love the fact that places like this still exist...the waitresses call you "Hon", the food is top notch, service was super quick and a great hometown atmosphere!!

The Corner Diner is a prototypical diner breakfast establishment. Friendly service, classic options, & huge portions, all at an very affordable price. The place was packed when we happened by on a weekday close to 10AM, the place must really be hoppin' on weekends.

If you can eat a lot this is your place, if not bring a friend or 2 and share breakfast. Don't be afraid if there is a line out the door it's worth the wait (never had to wait more than 20 minutes to be seated).It's a friendly little dive café and most everyone knows someone in there.

Come hungry! Servings are enormous! Most always a short wait for breakfast, but well worth it! The omelettes are off the hook!

My wife and I went here a few days ago for breakfast and were underwhelmed. It's always been really good in the past, but it was disappointing this time. The waitress didn't do a good job and the food wasn't very flavorful. I've always loved the home style potatoes with the grilled onions and bell peppers which were non-existent this... More
