Description: 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.

We have had breakfast at this restaurant several times. They have everything from fruit pancakes to a full country breakfast. Their tenderloins, salads and turkey and dressing dinner are great! The rolls, that come with the dinners, are so big and good! Good place for the whole family. If you are in a hurry either get it to go or sit at the counter. They have pies and huge cinnamon rolls to go too. Great country decor!

Don't vomit, but by choice I had chicken livers, fried okra, and macaroni and cheese. I had more food than I could manage! What a treat to have a meal cooked to perfection just as I would have in Grandma's kitchen. Service was quick, friendly, and our beverages were never empty. The place was packed and justified. Many menu choices.

We haven't eaten here for a long time and decided to try it again. Husband had a tenderloin and I had Ham and Beans. Tenderloin sandwich was good and priced at $8.99. Ham and Beans with cornbread was $4.99 and the flavor was very good but the beans were really watery and there was one small piece of ham. But the price was good and I did get full.
