More like a chain than anything, and we were pleased that someone mentioned vegetarian friendly. I guess grilled cheese and a tossed salad would be. I ordered the vegetable plate, consisting of five sides. cabbage...bacon or ham in it, same for the green beans!

You can always depend on good food and service here. Whenever we are in town this a must stop place for breakfast. Dinners are good too. Save room for pie.

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.
