The corner cafe is very small and usually busy at peak lunch hour, so go early (right at 11am) or go a little later (1:00 or 2:00) They are only open for lunch M-F. They offer a different soup daily. My favorite is the tomato bisque on Thursday with a Bacon Lettuce Tomato sandwich on a toasted croissant. They have... More

We found the Corner Cafe on Trip Advisor. The chicken salad was awesome. They even served candied pecans with it. Prices were very reasonable compared to every other place in the area we had dined. $7.75 for a sandwich plus two sides or $7.25 if paid in cash. Highly recommend for a healthier cost effective alternative.

My FAVORITE lunch spot in FWB!! The tri salad is THE BEST! ...chicken salad with grapes and candied pecans, chickpea salad, pasta salad, a slice of cake and tea for UNDER $10...YOU CAN'T GO WRONG with that choice! I can tell you I've tried many things from their menu over the years and I have never had anything I didn't... More

I had the Buffalo chicken salad. After eating the salad, I felt refreshed and an overall sense of well-being--the opposite of the experience you'd have eating somewhere else. This is a friendly establishment.

This place is small but the food is excellent. They have sandwiches, salads, wraps and sides that go with these. It is always packed and sometimes hard to find a parking place because it is so popular.

One of my wife's favs and I appreciate it when she shares her leftovers with me. Great sandwiches and salads. They do a lot of take-out. Not a date place, but good for lunch with friends. Limited seating.

$7.95 and small discount for paying with cash! Generous portions. Fast service. Order at counter and they deliver food to table. Look at the photo of the menu board and notice the luscious ingredients. I really like this lunch spot for value, service, and flavor

I have ordered lunch from this restaurant on several occasions through my school as we had all day meetings. The menu choices offer a variety of sandwich and salad choices along with several choices of a side. The food is always delicious and excellently prepared. I would recommend it highly!

I had my first experience at the Corner Cafe in Fort Walton today. Well, oh my! is all I can say. It was amazing. I had the tuna sandwich with chickpea salad, pasta salad and chocolate bundt cake. My friend had the tomato basil bisque soup, buffalo chicken wrap with chickpea salad and lemon bundt cake. Of course there were... More

This is a small restaurant in an unlikely location. I only found it because my parents live in FWB. I've eaten there twice in two days. Their food is very good.
