I go to that little restaurant almost one a week and always find it very pleasant. The personnel has a good attitude, the food is excellent. I always get good service and am very happy with it,

“little known restaurant with awesome food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013 via mobile

I had my first non-New Orleans shrimp po'boy from the Corner Cafe! I got it dressed (which I normally do not do) and the flavor was amazing! The waitress was so polite and friendly! What made it even better was the fact that it was not even a mile away from my hotel room! I will definitely be going there every time I vacation in New Orleans.

“Sunday Breakfast club”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

A group of seniors go to the Corner Cafe almost every Sunday after church. It is a large breakfast menu. The waitress is super. She knows all of our regular orders and our special requests. Decaf for one couple, no hash browns for another couple, etc. Food is good, coffee is good. We are all very comfortable there. If it is crowded, you will have a long wait.
They close at noon, but do not rush you out.
They are open during the week for lunch and dinner, but on Sunday for breakfast only.

“"ugly duckling" outside, "Cinderella" meal inside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

You can't judge a book by its cover, including this restaurant which - to put it mildly - lacks curbside appeal. Located in a strip mall just a door or two off of Veterans Hwy, it is safe to say that the dingy parking lot and the "ugly duckling" building facade have never ever attracted one new customer. What does attract new customers, however is word of mouth...and that is what I offer here.

Once you get over the ugly exterior, the plain Jane interior by comparison is much more acceptable. Service is surprisingly quick and refreshingly friendly. An interesting and extensive menu provides choices that will please everyone. On the morning that we went for breakfast, most of the other patrons seemed to be friendly and lively neighborhood regulars. If this restaurant would do some marketing to pull in customers from the nearby group of hotels, the quality of the food would draw many new customers.

Breakfast specials included Crab Cake Eggs Benedict but we opted for simpler choices that included a variety of items. The grits are good, the scrambled eggs are fluffy, and the pancakes are delicious. The ham steak is thick, juicy, accompanied by a slice of grilled pineapple, and highly recommended. The coffee is good and smooth, and the waitress keeps your cup full and hot. The biscuits are big and they are delicious as well. Ask for your eggs over-easy and the kitchen does a superb job. Lunch and dinner menus are very extensive as well.

Bottom line: The food and the service are good, and the prices are very reasonable. Once you get past the "ugly duckling" exterior outside, you really will enjoy a surprisingly "Cinderella" meal inside.
