Closing? Evicted by the guy who flooded Kelly's Row with sewage?

Have been in here plenty of times and always got good food and service. They often allowed the community to use their cafe for "coffee with the mayor or city council" which was very nice of them to do. Based on local news article in Foster's they have to move due to eviction? What a shame. A... read more

Café on the Corner had been my favorite place in Dover for coffee and people-watching since it opened many years ago. It had been operated by several different people. I intended to have an afternoon cup of coffee in downtown Dover. I was stunned to find it CLOSED. In the following days, conflicting versions of the closure came out in... More

I used to love this place. We studied here during Grad school. I recently went back and had the WORST experience of my life. The place was dirty, hair in food and the owners are very unprofessional. I would NEVER go back or recommend this establishment. It is such a pity! Save your money and go to bagel grounds!

We stopped in here to pick up coffee before boarding the train in Dover. It is a very cute spot and offers a nice menu. However, as I mentioned we were catching a train....and it took 30 minutes to place an order and make lattes for four people. I would not suggest this place if you have time constraints. It... More

This used to be my favorite place for a chicken Sandwich. Well seems to be new management and seems he needs to make an extra buck by cutting portions. I used to like there chicken sandwiches there they were a little pricey but worth it. I went there the other day and was shocked at what I had for my... More

My boyfriend ordered take out and got me a BLT. He wanted to get one too but they told him that they only had enough bacon for one sandwich. It's not hard to mess up a BLT yet surprisingly they managed! Two strips of bacon (if that), thinly sliced tomato, some lettuce and NO MAYONNAISE! Apparently they were busy, and... More

Awesome food and staff very friendly and the sandwhiches are to die for. Along with free WI-FI and comfortable seating a great little diamond in the rough

Hot cider poured straight from the cider gallon jug and served in toasty big ceramic mugs "for here". Lovely to wrap one's hands around a warm mug during a snowstorm. My companion and I appreciated the chance to get warm and dry during a surprisingly snowy day.

Since its opening, this has always been a place to get a cup of coffee in downtown Dover and to people-watch through the large picture windows facing Central Avenue and Third Street, a busy corner. Many people meet here so it's a social hub in downtown. The café has two couches, an armchair, plus both high and conventional tables with... More

Don't go there in a big group (10-12 people), they weren't ready and it took a long time to get served. The food and beverages where very good, but don't be in a hurry!
