Everything was good. Chicken and noodles, meatloaf, pot roast, turkey and dressing, it was all wonderful. The very best was the rolls, oh my, the rolls. Also, the onion rings were superb. And, the banana split pie was out of this world delicious. Best place...More

The Corner Cafe has an old Soul Down Home Southern Feeling: The Memory Nostalgia Of Old Card and Railroad Attractions was a Blast into the Past: The Biscuits and Gravy was Awesome: The go to Meal was the Smothered Pork Chip with Gravy:

Just happened to find this place. Very good food. Would probably stop by again if in the area. My husband had the fried chicken and I had a salad.

While visiting Kansas City last weekend, I ate here with a friend. He told me to try the biscuits and gravy, and said they were "good." No, they were GREAT! The best I've ever eaten! (And I've lived in the South for 37 years.) Wonderful...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.
