Our new favorite place. Given its proximity to the sports arenas, this place is packed with people on home game weekends, but they do a great job of getting people in quickly. We had breakfast here on a Sunday morning after a home football game...More

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.

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.
