This is one of the best little cafes we have stumbled across while traveling. Home cooked southern food just like my momma makes it. The homemade rolls were personally the best I have ever had. The hamburgers were perfect. The desserts look scrumptious but we were too full.. But I regret not getting something to go. Also, they have excellent... More

Amazing biscuits and sausage gravy andI usually have scrambled eggs and bacon, too. Hash browned potatoes are great. If you are up to it, get a humongous cinnamon roll to finish it off and you'll be so overloaded with carbs you'll be able to sleep like a baby when the insulin kicks in! Tables are not always super clean, especially... More

Superb place fro breakfast with one of the largest, tastiest cinnamon rolls available on earth! This is a regional favorite where families and church groups meet regularly. Lunch and dinner is good as well. Real potatoes although gravy for their hot beef (which is ample and tasty) is made at least partially from a mix. Ample parking, very easy to... More

Several claim home cooking but the Corner Cafe delivers. Breakfast are always good and a pecan sticky bun too big for one appetite. Don't know what is my favorite. Have several. Pecan chicken salad, great tenderloin sandwich. If it's Friday try the pot roast. Wednesday they have the best tacos of any place I have eaten. Chickens noodles are as... More

Family visited this restaurant during lunch time. Was advised by a family member to go before noon if we didn't want to wait for a table. They were absolutely right. We walked in and went right to a table. Service was fast and food was delicious. Large portions. I never had a bad meal at this restaurant. Recommend the catfish,... More

A few days ago we stopped in for breakfast. It had been a while since we'd been there, however we were not disappointed. My eyes were bigger than my stomach, and I ordered the 1 1/2 order of biscuits and gravy. Wrong choice. I could eat only half of what they served! Be careful when you go there, it's hard... More

I stopped in here on a recommendation as I was looking for an old-style breakfast. The place is somewhat large, very clean and quite a few of the customers seem to be regulars. The fried eggs, hashbrowns and biscuits and gravy are good, not outstanding. But well within the flavor zone I was looking for. prices are decent, food is... More

Four of us are dinner. Three chicken fried steaks & an open face hot beef dinner. Brown gravy was very good along with all the meat in the meals. Sweet tea hit the spot but the instant potatoes was a real deal killer for me, it's got to be real or not at all. Will go try it again &... More

The homemade bake goods are indescribably delicious. The breakfast is wonderful, but you can't miss with one of the hand breaded tenderloins big as the plate that it is served in. You can actually tell that it is a pork cutlet, instead of mystery meat too. The blackberry cobbler yum yum. If you want the wonderfully huge biscuits you must... More

Saturday morning breakfast was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. Service was great as well. I am a celiac so a lot was off limits, but the cinnamon looked amazing. They were enormous. Can't wait to go back!!!
