Description: There has always been a small restaurant at the “Corner” in Riverside, Missouri. Enter Ed & Kathi Rule. They had never been in the restaurant business before, but they always felt they knew what good food was all about. It began on May 15, 1983, when they opened a little 40-seat cafe that served breakfast and lunch. The CORNER CAFE was born. Expansions and new buildings have been built, but we continue the traditions that started back in 1983. We strive to provide the best products, the best service, and the best value in an atmosphere that makes you feel like you’re part of the family.

Great food at reasonable prices -- everything from breakfast to awesome pies & huge cinnamon rolls that could feed 4 people! They have daily specials, but sometimes they are sold out by 7:00 PM. Cozy, old-timey decor (my husband loves the Indian motorcyle). I've never eaten anything here that wasn't great! They have 3 locations in the area -- Independence, Liberty, and Riverside.

The food was very good. I had a French dip that made Arby's look cheap. I would eat here again. I liked how the restaurant looks like a barn.

The food was delicious. We were exhausted and hungry after a long day at the waterpark. We chose this cafe down the road from our hotel and it hit the spot. It was later in the day as the dinner rush was just winding down, but it was remarkably clean and the food was fresh. Quite the surprise if you ask me!

took six of us there about month ago. .. they do have good food here. it was a little busy that day. but they did not have very good service at all. waited for about 30 mins when there were tables open. must have been short staffed. once we were seated we must have waited about 10 mins before our server ever made it to us. once we ordered our drinks then it was another 10 mins maybe longer before our drinks arrived. then another 10-15 minutes before we were able to place our order then about 45 mins before food came out to us. like I said before the food is good. the place was busy. but come on...ovrr an hour after we sat down to get food in front of us. ill go back cuz I love the food just hope they get service figured out better.

The husband is a regular customer of the Corner Café north of the river. We have been to the Independence one several times and it is so far below the standard of the other ones. Paltry portions, dried out sandwiches, fake yellowish gravy, just bad all the way around. The service was absolutely terrible all three times we were there! Couldn't even get a refill on the coffee. The "hot" turkey sandwich was no better than a Banquet frozen dinner. Why is the one in Independence so different from the two on the other side of the river????
