Really cute place manager and staff was very accomodating. I got the ham and egg scramble with potatoes and toast, just enough food (loved it). My husband got the biscuits and gravy.Very nice and fluffy biscuits the gravy was great too. Would come back again. Try and go early they are pretty popular.

We ate at Cornerstone every morning during our vacation stay. The food is great, the staff is very friendly and the service was quick and efficient. When we mentioned to Linda that we were very pleased, Steven Gomez, the owner/manager, came to our table and sat down to visit with us. However, we did see him going from table to... More

The staff is, in fact, excellent as another reviewer commented. They are extremely pleasant, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. I, clearly, differ with the same reviewer who wrote the food was mediocre. It was outstanding! Possibly that individual had a bad night before or a bad morning. I had the Las Cruces Omelete and it was absolutely delicious. My... More

When we arrived at the cafe the place was booming. I asked a waitress if we seat ourselves or wait to be seated. She told me they would seat me just go to waiting area. We did and several minutes later the attendant called for another party to be seated. We were not told to put our name in at... More

My family and I ate here on our last day in Ruidoso before starting our long drive back home. They have a full breakfast menu; it's not just a bakery. Food was pretty good and everyone was super friendly. Plus you can buy pastries for the road.

Waited on a Sunday morning for about an hour until we were seated. We had read all of the great reviews so we thought it would be worth it. We honestly didn't think any of the 3 different breakfast plates we ordered were outstanding. They were all good, but not the best we've eaten. There were a lot of "regulars"... More

We were leery after seeing so many negative reviews that any restaurant in this small town was really good but this one is-don't miss it. We chose a wide variety of menu items-soups, sandwiches, breakfast items, and desserts. All Good!! The place is clean, so are the restrooms, the staff is friendly and it can be crowded. Go early, plan... More
