Everything at Cornerstone is EXCELLENT! The pancakes I had there recently are the best I've ever eaten, and my cousin says their coffee blends are out of this world. The soups, sandwiches, salads, and baked goodies are ahhhhmmmaaazing!!!! Don't leave Ruidoso without paying a visit to Cornerstone! We are "frequent fliers" here!

Go here for breakfast. You won't be disappointed. Such a great menu. No wonder it is rated highly---food is delicious. Bakery items looked wonderful, so we took a couple of different muffins with us. They were especially good.

You must eat here when you are in Ruidoso, you will not be disappointed. Angel was our server each day and she does an excellent job. We eat breakfast here every morning that we are in Ruidoso. Coffee is good, sausage and pancakes are a favorite.

We ate here two mornings. Get here early or prepare to wait. But I have to say the wait was fun! They give you free coffee while you wait and everyone was friendly and talking while waiting and it went pretty quickly. As far as the food, it was really really good! Try the Santa Fe quiche, one of the... More

Local bakery is good for all in your family. Staff is very courtious abd freindly. Good menu and a bakery selection that is great. Wife could leave without trying carrot cake, and she wants to go back for more before we leave. Just home style food and section.

Was in Town for a couple of nights, and had breakfast here twice. I'm an early riser, so the place was not busy. The service and general attitude of the staff was above and beyond. The food quality was also excellent. Some other customers seemed a little put off with the coffee being self-serve. However, this seems to be a... More

Our 2nd visit to Cornerstone Bakery & Cafe Co did not disappoint us. Had Breakfast our last day in Ruidoso in 2015, & again 10/8/16. Their prep staff & servers aim to please & know how to do it right.....even go overboard compared to OH eateries, LOL! Breakfast & Lunch service.....don't anticipate "dinner or supper." You won't need it...

Great food, Personal service. Great coffee! Exceptional breakfast experience. I also bought bread to take out, as well as their ground Pinon Coffee. Best place to eat in Ruidoso. This restaurant is a model for having a culture that is customer-friendly. Impressive. The owners, Steven and Marie, are amazing leaders, both for their business, and in the community.

Thank Andrew D
