The Corner Cafe is an excellent location for breakfast. The hearty breakfast special is excellent. The prices are reasonable and the service is very good. I have only eaten breakfast there but I know they are open for lunch as well. Give a try I think you'll be glad you did.

We always enjoy weekend breakfast out and Cindy's is at the top of our list. I go for the biscuits and gravy-best recipe in town. While the kitchen seems to struggle with poached eggs the rest of the meal is good solid café fare. Servers are always friendly and generally attentive. Have never tried their lunch yet, but the menu... More

Would love to comment on food but we've been here almost an hour and haven't received any yet. Very disappointed. Should have just left but still holding out hope

I wanted a chicken fried steak but couldn't find it on the menu so I went with a tenderloin, It came bare with no tomato, onion, lettuce. Just meat on bread, I never tried them before because I disagreed with their orientation. $27 was pricey for a breakfast for two.

We have been to Cindy's several times since they have moved locations, however we will not be going back anytime soon. We were able to get a table with a short wait and ordered soon after we were seated. We waited an hour and a half for our food to arrive, our breakfast turned into lunch. Our server was very...

Happened to stop in on a Sunday for brunch. The service could've been a little better, but the was very good. Had a breakfast burrito. The only thing is I wish it came with some sort of side, even though very filling on its own. Will definitely be back.

Thinking to beat the weekend breakfast crowd, I got here at 7AM. Judging from the nearly overflow crowd they thought 6:45 am. I found a small table, got my order taken and it arrived surprising quick. All items were very good. They have breakfast covered with just about anything you might want. Lunch is offered also with lot of sandwiches... More

I have never seen such big portions for the price. The pancakes have to be about a foot across, and you get 2 with a meal. The hashbrowns are about twivw thw normal size...and, that's the half order. My only criticism is that the wait for your food is very long, often 1/2 hour.
