Great food

Biscuits and gravy delish as always. Service was also above average. You should also try their cinnamon rolls. HUGE and equally delicious.

This is comfort food. Great selection of home cooked style favorites including breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts. The decor is fun to look at with lots of old signs, etc. While we visited at off peak I hear it's packed at peak hours for both lunch and dinner so you may want to plan accordingly. The menu has something for... More

We eat breakfast from the Corner just about every Saturday. My wife loves the Gringo Omelet, and eats half the biscuit with jelly for dessert. I mix it up with something different just about every trip. Everything is as close to home cooked as you can get when your Mother, or Grandmother isn't around to fix it for you. If... More

This is the best family owned restaurant any where. They serve the best Biscuits and gravy you will ever eat. Also try the Huge cinnamon rolls.

Visited at dinner on a Friday night around 7:30. We did not have to wait for a table and our service was good. Everyone in our group enjoyed their food. This is a good place to go for comfort food.

It's been awhile since I'd been in the Corner Cafe. I'd forgotten how comfortable it was. I had a cranberry walnut Fuji apple salad, It was sssooo good. It is always busy. It is worth the trip. I will go back. It displays motorcycles - past & present.

There is a reason this place is crowded every day. I love to go here for their very large breakfasts. They also have great sandwiches for lunch. They are well know for their homemade pies and cinnamon rolls.

We have been here many times. Comfort food galore. Anything and everything you could think of. Always great service. Excellent food. Breakfast served all day. Freshly baked goods including cinnamon rolls, cakes and pies. Will continue to be a Corner Cafe regular.

The food selection and atmosphere was great. The service getting the food was also great and very timely. However trying to get a bill to pay was somewhat time consuming. We went on a Saturday afternoon, it was busy but appeared to be moving customers at a decent rate. The quality of food and taste was down home type and... More
