Never eat at this place! I ordered breakfast there about 1pm and when I took a bite of my hash browns I found a BIG BLACK ROACH in there. I ran out screaming.

Last week, my fianc and I visited the Corner Cafe in Riverside. I was really looking forward to eating there because I had heard so many good things.

My fianc ordered the tacos and I ordered a Ruben sandwich. I looked over the sandwich and noticed that the meat was fatty but, proceeded to take a bite. After the initial bite, I took another look at the sandwich and noticed that there was no thousand island dressing and that the cheese seemed off as well.

The waitress came by and asked if everything was okay. I told her that my sandwich didn??t taste quite right. She apologized and asked if I??d like the cook to remake the sandwich or if I would like something different. I ordered a salad instead and was happy with the great service I had received, UNTIL THE MANAGER CAME TO MY TABLE!
Here??s where my experience turns from one of much enjoyment to utter devastation. Not five minutes had elapsed when the manager came around the corner with my plate in her hand. She thrust the plate at me and abruptly asked, ??So, what??s supposed to be wrong with this?? I was gobsmacked! I explained that the cheese didn??t taste like Swiss. She dourly replied, ??That IS Swiss.? I was so taken aback by her tone and demeanor that it was hard for me to reply. I then said, ??Well, the meat seems a little off.? She started poking at the meat and said, again in boorish tone, ??Other than this part right here that is over cooked, it??s just fine. That??s how we serve it.? I thought for a moment that she would drop the plate on the table and force me to eat it! Following a pregnant pause she begrudgingly asked, "So did you want us to remake it or do you want something else?" I sheepishly replied that I had already asked the waitress for a salad instead. I then watched her roughly throw the plate of food into the trash. By this time, I was thoroughly disgusted with the treatment I had received.

When I asked if I might be able to speak to the owners, the manager replied, "You can reach them at this number, that's my parents, but they aren't here every often."
I was utterly flabbergasted by this! On their website, they tout the fact that their establishment is just like home and that guest are treated like extended family. That's certainly not the impression that I got after my nightmare ordeal with the owner's daughter! I followed up by asking her if there was anyone above her that I might speak with, she curtly replied, "Yeah, my brother but, he won't be in until Friday." The Cheshire's smile that she then displayed suggested that she felt that there would be no repercussions for her actions.

What has me dumbstruck, is why on earth a manager in the service industry would allow a GUEST, to leave your restaurant without any attempt to rectify the situation? She was insulting and lacked any sense of professionalism. Perhaps her comfort in her position has bred apathy in her conduct. I can only suppose that she has no desire to inherit the family business, as she is certainly not adding to its continued success.

I do NOT see any semblance of belief or adherence to the things they say on their website...."we strive to provide the best products, the best service, and the best value in an atmospheee that makes you feel like your part of the family. Our family."

YEAH, RIGHT! I certainly don't want to be apart of their disfunctional family and certainly wouldn't recommend their restaurant to anyone that I like!

Corner Cafe is a great restaurant for country style food - cinnamon rolls the size of your head, chicken fried steak, biscuits and gravy to die for, open faced sandwiches smothered in mashed potatoes and gravy, etc. I was suprised to see the reviews claiming bad service. I live less than 5 minutes away and we eat at Corner Cafe at least once a month and sometimes more frequently. I have never had an experience of bad service. The servers I have always had are attentive, quick, and friendly. On busy breakfast outing days - like Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays - plan on having to wait awhile to get a table.

This is a paradise of baked foods and homecooked-style meals. Some of it is a lil bit salty, but it's pretty good.

Our service was awful and the bathrooms were nasty. The changing table had old feces on it and so did the walls!!!

I would be okay if I didn't return to this location.

This is another family favorite of ours. We know we can always get in quickly no matter how long the line is. They have the best pie and you must order either a sticky bun or cinnamon roll to go! We've had both alright and great service here, I think they tend to hire a lot of high schoolers and sometimes they aren't the most friendly. The manager always seems to stop by our table and talk to our daughter, that means a lot.

Went there last night, food was good and was served fast but the gal that waited on us seemed somewhat pushy, in a hurry. I 've been there just a couple of times, but last night it was like"hey let us eat our salads before you try to swipe it away when the the dinners arrive."

Pros: younger servers tend to be nicer than the older ones here....

Cons: prices continue to raise without improvement in food taste or quality

I typically tip at the table and they like to add tips to your Debit card. Twice I called about this and twice the Manager told me this was a mistake.
I think that is not a mistake. The Servers want bigger tips.
Always write in your tip on your reciept and if you are not adding one to your card WRITE in NO TIP.
The Food is wonderful and even if the line is long your wait is usually not bad and it doesn't usually take long to get your food and it always tastes great.

This is a comfortable little restuarant that is conducive to relaxing and enjoying a meal alone or with a group of friends. They serve large breakfasts all day and have wonderful hashbrowns. Don't pass it up on your next trip to Liberty.

I have been to the Corner Cafe in Liberty quite a few times since it has opened. The food is great and the service is usually prompt and polite. On my last visit, the dining experience was fantastic. My server, I think her name was Allison, was absolutely wonderful. The food arrived fast and was nice and hot. I often recommend the Corner Cafe to friends and family due to its great service and wonderful food.

PROS: Wonderful service and great food
CONS: Sometimes a long wait but its worth it

This cafe is our favorite. I eat there 3-4 times a week, average. The food is excelent. It's a home cooked style. I have never had a bad meal or bad dish there. I could not ask for better service. The servers are friendly, curtious and prompt. I've never had a meal "mixed" up. They refill my glass before I can get it all finished. I've had servers who have been there a long time and newer servers, never have I had "bad" service. I recommend this place to all of my friends for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The problem is... the place can be easily crowded and one has to wait in line to be seated. It is one of the most popular, busiest places in this area, but worth the wait.

PROS: Great service and excellent food
CONS: On the busiest days (like Sunday) I wish they took reservations!

Tried this cafe three or four times, thought the first few times might have been a fluke but the service is just poor and the food isn't even hot when served.

Okay I want to start this by saying there food is okay but I have had better before. They do have good Chicken and Noodles.
Now the service. The last 4 times I have gone I have had the same server and she was not that great at all. It was slow and the order was not right either.
If you do not mind if the service is off a bit I say go ahead and go there. But if you are looking for a place with great service and they are there to help take care of you then go elsewhere.

PROS: Good chicken and noodles
CONS: The service is slow and the food is cold at times.

I love their food also. I have had one good server out of the 3 times I've been there and that was when it was just me and my daughter. The first time I remember the server never brought my daughter her free cookie that comes with the kids meal. I know it's petty but I'm sure that's something they have to do with almost every table. You also never see your server walking around a bunch to check on their table. The prices are great and the pies always look tasty. If looking for great service this might not be the place to go.

PROS: Prices, Food
CONS: Service

I would eat here every day if the service was not so poor. I LOVE the food, have never had anything bad. However, I have NEVER had good service. Either they are terribly slow or the server is rude. You never know what you will get, but I promise you will get one! We actually do eat here a lot despite the poor service which should tell you how good the food really is.

PROS: Sticky Buns are to Die For
CONS: BAD, BAD SERVICE
