We had a great time and we’re seated fast. The waiter brought one of our plates really hot and since it burned my hand he also brought us a cinnamon roll for free to split! Great reaction to an otherwise questionable encounter.

A nice place to go for home cooked food. Country cooking and country style. My husband loves the meatloaf and I love the tenderloin.

This place was recommended to us by the hotel clerk. So good. We really wanted to try the desserts but no room. We ordered the pork tenderloin dinner with mashed potatoes and corn. The rolls were so big like a meal in itself. Lots of...More

This place reminded me a little bit of Cracker Barrel. Food was plentiful, fast and delicious. We were all satisified with our meals and our waitress was very attentive and helpful.

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is fresh, the staff is friendly and attentive. Large selection and the deserts are great. Prices are reasonable. You may have a short wait but it is worth it.

Stopped in for breakfast. Biscuit and gravy very good. Cinnamon Bun big enough to feed a family of four. Pleasant waitstaff. Seated quickly and food came after a reasonable wait. No negatives.

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

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.
