I have eaten at The Corner several times and every time the food has been fantastic. They have some very different, but delicious items on the menu. Don't hesitate to try something new. It's a cute and quirky little restaurant. I always look forward to...breakfast or lunch there.More

The food was great but Everything was dirty, the table, carpet, full of things and objects (very ugly) . The attendants were kind but they don’t care about their appearance. The environment is really really frustrating.More

Hello Notjustforthefood, Glad to hear you liked the food! We are at 1/2 capacity. We went from having 15 tables plus the counter to 7 tables. It is awkward even for us and we try to fill the empty space with antiques, tea pots, etc....More

Wonderful eclectic menue. Our food was delicious. Desert was scrumptious. Our waitress' "tude" was not necessary and unacceptable. I am sure the reviewers were not treated in the same manner. This was not my first visit and other wait staff were friendly and pleasant.

Admittedly, I had breakfast for lunch. But was not disappointed. First time here. Had the Spiced Indian Duck Tortilla. The waitress said it would have some kick - and it did - I didn't need to add anything to this. Great breakfast (for lunch) meal....The side of potatoes was bland in comparison. Coffee was at par for breakfast places. I'd go back to give a few of the other items on the menu a try.More

Thank you! The duck is a great way to start! If you'd like to keep it spicy, try the Malaysia, #2 on the list! Happy New Year!

First and last visit to this restaurant. Cold coffee at 7:45 am. My husband had African hash - looked like mush. I had the enpanada. Neither we're anything I'd recommend. Very odd menu for specials. Asked for well done hash browns twice. They couldn't get...it right. Take cash only... SURPRISE!!!More

I'm very sorry that we disappointed you. I can tell you both of our hashes are soft. The African Hash is a soft, spicy beef and lentil hash that is layered over an English Muffin with poached eggs, crispy potato carvings, and Bearnaise Sauce. Wishing...More

We have lived in Fairfield County for almost 20 years and were so pleasantly surprised to find The Corner Restaurant. It is only open for breakfast and lunch and they serve both options all day. The food is outstanding - interesting/varied, well prepared and beautifully...presented. We also had a fantastic waitress - she explained everything to us, made us feel right at home, and really made our lunch a dining experience. We cannot wait to return!More

You most certain can walk it, but it's a bit of a walk. Better off driving there.
