Great comfort food and great service. Don't go here for a quiet meal, though--place is hopping! We ordered the chicken and noodles and chicken dinner (gravy on the side). Ours tasted great and every tray that passed our table was loaded with other dishes we...More

The bakery is amazing. Best cobbler in town! Cinnamon buns to die for! We had dinner too and it was very good. The restaurant was busy, but it seemed the servers always had time to go the extra mile. Well appreciated. We went back twice...More

We'd been here before and found that the sandwiches and main dishes are just too large for us so we opted for breakfast. The portions are just right (unless you order the all out huge ones). Hubby had ham and cheese omelet with hash browns...More

The weekend wait for a table might put you off. But, if you plan in advance the wait is worth it in the end. You get excellent food that is reasonable in price. The service is excellent and it's refreshing to see a restaurant hire...More

We ate dinner here and it was fantastic. They are like a mix of cracker barrel and IHOP but with better food! Prices are very reasonable. We would definitely eat here again.

We shared a late breakfast & a piece of lemon meringue pie. Plenty of good comfort food in a casual atmosphere. The cinnamon rolls are amazing. Usually have one to share but it was Friday & lemon meringue pie day.

Good, down home cooking. Prompt service. Large facility can accommodate lots of people. Vegetables tasted more like fresh cooked than institutional.

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.
