“Another local's favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

If you're looking for home cooking and freshly made delicious pies, look no further. They have a limited menu of "down home" good food. You won't find a menu full of frozen entrees from Sams.

A staple, featured on their menu daily, is the roast beef sandwich with (real) mashed potatoes and gravy. Corner Cafe features a special each day such as; soup beans, corn bread, etc. along with their usual favorites. Their pies are so delicious and homemade daily.

They're conveniently located downtown near the flood wall in a newly remodeled building nestled in the Matheny Motors area, corner of Ann Street and 2nd Streets. If you're staying at the Lafayette Hotel, it's a two block walk West down Third Avenue toward the Ohio River and turn left South on Ann Street and walk one block. There is ample parking beside the restaurant.

Restaurant is near several downtown museums, Point Park on the Ohio River where boats embark for Blennerhassett Island and the farmer's market.
