We drive here often from Cambridge as we love the fresh 'real' food. We sometimes have to wait for a table as it is very small, but well worth the wait. My favourites are the antijitos, pad thai and the burrito (it's huge!!).

This place has everything. Great food, great people, live bands, great atmosphere, and great beer. It's always a great place to go for breakfast (I always get the breakfast platter or tofu scramble), and their pad thai is excellent

I'm not a vegetarian but this place is. Any way live and learn, I had a rare vegetarian meal. The food was good, well presented. Atmosphere is very artsy artsy hippy grunge. Brigt Clean Friendly. A One timer for this meat eater.

It's pretty run-down but the options are super and nice selection of beers too. I like the pub-like food with vegan options.

Visiting from Aussie, had a great breakfast here. Migas with roast potatoes, super tasty and nice easy local vibe. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Enjoyed a delicious vegan tofu club with guac and curry potatoes. Perfect rainy cold afternoon to enjoy healthy great food in historic stone building, chilling to The Hip. Service was friendly and quick, but was off peak time.

Great food yet it takes some time to get it at times. I was there with my wife and some friends. We found it took a while to get the food.

I like going to The Cornerstone because I know I will always be able to find great vegetarian and vegan options. They have board games available to play (we like chess -get creative with the missing pieces). Service can be hit and miss. Cozy atmosphere.

Okay nice small place on the corner of MacDonell and Wyndham South. But by small I mean reallyyyyyy small. We came here because my sister had a gig with her jazz group at U of G (comprised of 8 students). Once we got the menu (took around 10 minutes to even get ours) I was very surprised at the limited...

I've been here a number of times and have found that overall the food is pretty good. The breakfast here is very good with a variety of different options. I recently had an omelette with pesto and it was very good. My most recent visit was disappointing. The it took ages to get our order and when I finally got... More
