On a recent trip, we had lunch at both the Blue Goose and Cornerstone. Both are excellent choices, but there are a couple of differences that should be considered when you make your choice. First off, Cornerstone has probably 75% more indoor seating than the Goose. However, the Goose has a lot of outside sitting, while Cornerstone has none. I'd also have to give the over all ambiance to Cornerstone. The major difference is the size of the servings... For about the same price, you get much larger portions at the Goose. Both of us had food left after reaching the full mark at the Goose, but the plates were clean at Cornerstone. That's not to say you are going to go away hungry at Cornerstone, it just shows how big the portions are at the Goose.

We will continue to eat at both, they are both great!

Everything is good...very good. The chocolate cherry puff pastry goodies are the best! Spinach salad and green chile soup are yummy too.

Ate here on a Saturday morning around 9. Small parking lot can make for a walk if this place is busy, but I was lucky again in this bustling tourist town. All the help is very friendly and make ones morning brighten. You have to get your coffee at a station but you have choices and one that I would recommend is the Pinon Roast. Absolutely smooth and robust, in fact my wife loved it so much she bought a bag to take home. She also bought the brownie out of the take out case as this is a bakery as well as a restaurant. Brownie was to die for when she shared it with me later in the day. Food is good here, plenty on your plate and done correctly. Also their prices are good and I saw that clientele is mainly senior this morning.

Got there before the rush, place was clean inside and out. The service and food was really good and the pricing made it a good value. Would do a repeat breakfast here on any trip to or though Ruidoso.
