The smoothies at the Cornerhouse were very good. We had the steak sandwich and the steak was quite chewy. Nice ambience.

Great salads and sandwiches! Super fresh and really nice potato fries. Disappointing chocolate milkshake (so bitter). Expensive for area, but a nice break from traditional food.
