When we moved to the area in 2010...we noticed that The Busy Corner is appropriately named! That parking lot is always full! Thankfully, there is a lot of seating inside...and no danger of running out of pie! The pie case you see when you walk in starts your mouth watering. They had me with pie...and cheesecake...and coffee...and the cuteness of... More

They do fried chicken right, their breakfasts are great, and their sandwiches and salads hit the spot as well. If you've not been, DO. If you just stop by for pie, try the rest of the menu!

My bike club scheduled brunch at Busy Corner yesterday(Sat) morning for brunch. Heard many positive responses from people I talked to. Service was fast considered how busy they were. Wait staff was friendly and my shredded beef sandwich with mash potato & gravy didn't take long to serve after ordering. The pie is a must after your meal. The pumpkin... More

We ate here twice this week. Once for dinner and once for breakfast. There was a group of six of us. It was pretty good. Nothing spectacular, but we would eat here again. Pie's were really good except the chocolate pie had way too much whipped cream on it & not enough pudding.

The food served at Busy Corner is plentiful and tasty. Their prices are comparable to other diner type restaurants. We've had several meals there. Most recently, we ordered several pies. The pies are cooked to order, we had one made without nuts, and therefore, one day notice for a whole pie is requested. They have quite a variety of pies.... More

This is a hidden gem (at least for out of towners) serves AMAZING homemade pies and great food at extremely reasonable prices. The only reason I didn't give this a five is because the floor needed cleaning, but this could have been the breakfast and lunch rush. Great griiled cheese, too.

We have eaten here twice with family. It is "THE" place for weekend breakfast among friends. I've been gone from the area for 45 Plus years so don't know many folks but my family from there talk with everybody. They all know each other. Just a nice thing to see folks socialize with friends. The staff all knows the folks... More
