“Fabulous and different”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

Noticed the crowd lined up at the restaurant and although we were on our way to a wedding, knew that it must be a wonderful place to eat. The next day we returned to eat at the restaurant. Again there were people waiting. We were shown to our seats within five minutes of entering and were immediately offered coffee and given menus. There were so many different dishes to choose from it was difficult to decide. But we did and we both chose the Vermont omelette. So delicious. Served with wonderful potatoes with herbs and your choice of bread. Our waitress was great and although the restaurant was very, very busy, she came by several times to see if we needed our LARGE coffee cup refilled or needed anything further. Would so highly recommend the Corner Cafe if you are in the Newport area. Well worth the visit.

“Maybe they had a busy July weekend...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013 via mobile

And they were tired. But after I was seated at my table, the waitress left me there for a long time while she drank her coffee and flirted with a guy sitting at the counter. Finally the owner came over and took my order. The food came quickly and it was very good. But I only gave it 4 stars this time. I will have to go back and see if the service gets better.

“Good, clean food, but 1 server for 18 people?!?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

PROS - yummy home fries
Good size and tasty omelette
(Claudia's Pick)
Reasonable prices and portions
Fresh ingredients-except for canned mushrooms
Charming, clean atmosphere
Waitress had good attitude and did her best

CONS - omelette was burned on one side
Should've been 2 waitresses on staff, took awhile to get order placed and even longer to get check
Cook forgot to add cheese to to one order of eggs
Butter came right out of fridge and was hard as a rock
