We went to Cornerstone Cafe for a late breakfast on a weekday. There weren't many other customers, but that was understandable as it was a Tuesday between normal meal hours. The service was very friendly and helpful- we were having trouble reading the specials board from across the restaurant and our waitress kindly read hem out for us and answered... More

First time here. I had the ham sandwich with ginger sauce and dried cherries and side of sweet potato fries. Husband had Reuben with onion rings. Everything very tasty, though fries were not hot. Server sweet but never checked back in to refill drinks or see if we needed anything. A little pricy for quality and service.

At the end of a row of antique shops, You will find this little Gem. Full of Happy, Positive employees. My wife had the Patty-Melt, a monster-size piece of grilled perfection, dripping with delicious cheese, on grilled Rye bread. She, and she would know, said it is the best she has ever had. I decided on the Western Burger. Wow!... More

I came here with a friend for lunch. She had the chicken salad sandwich with sweet potato fries and I had the turkey sandwich with regular fries. We both had sweet tea. I was a little reluctant about the pretzel bread that my sandwich was made with but our server convinced me to try it. It was a very good... More

I was the first customer of the day, and I was welcomed warmly with a pot of very tasty decaf coffee. Wide range of breakfast choices. I had the omelet special of the day, which was excellent. Other customers came in...clearly regulars. They welcomed me, too!

Was visiting the downtown area and went here based on other reviews. Total bust, needed a high for baby and it was sticky so I wiped it down with a baby wipe. Had to use three wipes and sanitizer to get clean. $2.25 for a bottle of coke, ordered a grilled cheese which consisted of 2 sliced of toast and... More
