They have a great breakfast and the home made wheat toast is fresh daily. I always get the Max Special for breakfast.

Used to be a cheerful cosy restaurant for breakfast, lunch and the occasional dinner. Very crowded in the summer for breakfast as it is the only place in Culver that serves breakfast. Last few visits were disappointing. Slow service, poor reception and some staff are indifferent. Made to feel very unwelcome. Last visit was for breakfast. Poor service and cold... More

Great food, drinks & service! The fried chicken is the best we've ever had & they have a bacon bloody Mary which is awesome too! We will definitely be back

This is an outstanding café in downtown Culver which has been open for many, many years. it has specialties like sinful French toast made out of homemade cinnamon rolls as well as the famous Corner Tavern fried chicken. Service is excellent, food is excellent and you can often see the owner very involved in the day-to-day operations. Highly recommend!

We went here for breakfast during our trip and enjoyed the ambiance and the food. I had the eggs Benedict and it was yummy. My fiancé had the spinach and sundried tomato omelette and he is still talking about it. We can definitely see why the line was out the door when we left.

I'm biased to this place as it reminds me of my culver staff days in the summers of 2006 and 2001.. When I visited this summer I noticed that nothing has changed especially the quality of food.. Nothing to discuss here.. I believe most of their breakfast dishes are great.. They have excellent coffee.. If in culver it's the best... More

Great place for breakfast and lunch! Very friendly service at very good prices. Love this small little restaurant. It is decorated with old Culver academy things and just has a great flair. They always manage to make room for you. Menu has not changed in a while but food is still delicious!

WE walked into this place on July 4th around 2:30 pm. They greeted us and told us they had stopped serving food,, but people were lingering around so we could have some drinks. WE sat down at the bar and had a couple of drinks. The service was super friendly and understanding. They served excellent drinks and offered some really... More
