I wish they had places like this in Utah. Charming environment, and great food, but the service is what stands out at this extraordinary coffee and sandwich shop. We showed up with over 20 people and still had room for other guests to sit and enjoy the game, sandwiches, and espresso. The staff was incredibly accommodating for a party of... More

Under new management things are quite different. Still good coffee, but a smaller selection of pastries. Coffee refills are nicer now that I can get my own. However, my decaf has to be made behind the counter and refills the same way. Lots of flies the last several times I have been there. Still nice to have in town, though.

Clarke corner is in the rustic old "red brick building" in the heart of downtown Ione. It is cool in more ways than one. The interior is cool on a hot spring day-aaah! The brick and wood appointments and big comfy couches in the front window are welcoming. The staff are casual and friendly. On a cooler day, the patio... More

I wish I could pick up this cafe and move it to my town. From the decor to the food, it's awesome. The coffee is really good and they have beer on tap!

Great coffee shop for a bit of socializing and good pastries. The Sutter Creek coffee was very good and the apple fritter hit the spot. We were planning a quick stop at Clark's Corner but ended up staying awhile. Great atmosphere. Ione is lucky to have this gathering place.

Amazing food, wonderful entertainment and the most gracious community involvement! It is a wonderful local eatery that is not your typical sandwich stop.
