The Corner Cafe is a place to go when you're starving and need some good down home cooking. Specializing in a Southern type cuisine, you're guaranteed not to leave hungry. The food is always good, with the only downside being it has that produced in mass portions feel instead of individually prepared when ordered. We always order a cinnamon roll... More

Just had dinner here with my wife . It was very crowded but we lucked out and were seated quickly. The menu is enormous! My wife had breakfast and I had an 8 oz burger with bacon and grilled onions.

It was OK. The food seemed very ordinary. My cabbage had a dead fly in it. Yuck! Will not be back. It seemed to have a sizable bakery that we did not partake.

The Corner Cafe bills itself as a down home family restaurant. It has a very large menu with daily specials and the pies look delicious. Our meal, however, was not as good as hoped. My wife's chicken fried chicken open faced sandwich met with her approval. I had the chicken fried steak dinner. The mashed potatoes were clearly instant with... More

We went on a Friday night and had a very small wait. It is worth the wait! I got the turkey and stuffing dinner and it was amazing!!

We met some family here. This is a very busy restaurant but they get people in and out in a timely manner. The waitress was very friendly and professional. The food was hot and fixed to order. The portions are definitely large and filling. I will definitely come back and recommend this place to others

We love to stop here for breakfast when we're in the area. They have a great variety of breakfast items. Today I had a Corner Omelette. It was delicious, ham, peppers, onion, mushrooms, tomatoes, cheese. It was big and yummy with hash browns and toast. My husband LOVES their pie. Sometimes he brings home a whole pie from the Corner... More

Local restaurant. Original in Riverside MO. Not sure how long this one has. Even there, but it's very good. Everyone loves the cinnamon rolls. I am not a cinnamon rolls person....but they smell yummy.
