Corner Cafe - Priority Seating Ratings and Reviews
First time there. Food and drinks were VERY good. I would not reorder the French toast. It was not what I expected. Not prepared like any I have ever eaten. Did not like the texture. Tasted fine, just didn't care for the prep. Everything else was really good.
Decor is a bit "tired" and could use some love. I assume they stay so busy they don't want to close to redecorate.
Would definitely return.
We are Buckhead Life members and often eat breakfast here. Today our waitress was a little scattered. We had to ask for my latte which she clearly forgot. Also for brown sugar and raisins for my oatmeal which usually comes with it. I ordered 1 poached egg and got 2 but I didn't make a fuss. I'm sure we'll return because we're members and always enjoy our meals at all of their restaurants. Just thought they should know about our experience this morning.
Priority seating was a joke. We arrived 10 minutes prior to our reservation time and we were told 10-15 minutes wait time. Two other couples arrived after us without a reservation and were told 30 -40 minutes. 40 minutes later, ALL of us were shown to tables. Why call for a reservation if I am still going to have to wait 40 minutes? Food was o.k.
It was Easter & we expected a crowd. Restaurant was very busy with lots of people waiting. Space is not conducive to accommodate that many people. Our waiter was good, but food service from the kitchen was very slow. We had a small child with our group who only ordered pancakes. Felt like they could have brought his food out quicker.
Came here after the Publix Georgia Marathon for brunch and it did NOT disappoint. Everyone ordered something different and everyone absolutely loved their meal. Definitely a special occasion place, their bakery and coffee bar while you wait is also AMAZING!
We met a cousin from out of town and took him to breakfast at the Corner Cafe. There were 5 of us and we sat closest to the bakery area - which was a great asset. I believe it was a lot quieter there than in the main dining room so we were able to catch up without having to talk over lots of other conversations.
Food was exceptional - if you are a corned beef hash fan, they have the real thing, not the canned stuff. Service was fantastic, our coffee cups never got below 1/2 full.
This is definately a come back to kind of place.
A breakfast place should have excellent coffee and Corner Cafe does not. The food was good, nothing outstanding, but a nice variety for a group with different eating habits. All hard surfaces makes for a very loud meal, bordering on too loud to hear each other.
I arrived a few minutes early and the hostess had my reservation and seated me right away. Within minutes, my server took my drink order. My friend arrived a few minutes later and once again our server was right there taking her drink order. Once we placed our order the food arrived relatively quickly even though the restaurant was packed. Service was excellent. This was the first time I'd had brunch at the Corner Cafe. My brunch choice was the fried green tomato eggs benedict with bacon. The food was wonderful. The fried green tomato was crispy as it should be, eggs cooked perfectly, potatoes on the side were also cooked nice and crispy. Shared the french toast with berries with my friend. Tasty but a little too sweet for me to have more than two bites. Highly recommend brunch at the Corner Cafe!
We like the restaurant fine for breakfast. We even have one waiter we ask for who is particularly great. But my one negative is that the hostess didn't respect the priority seating. We got there but then stood around waiting our turn until after she had seated the folks already there. On the hand one, that would be fair since, after all, the other diners were there before us. But, on the other hand, why offer priority seating if it's meaningless? Just acknowledge that the restaurant is first come, first serve. And then we, as diners, will take that into account when we decide where to select for brunch.
We just love this place! We were there for the Atlanta Gift Market, just like every January and July.
This is always our Breakfast stop on the way out of town on Sunday morning.
No need for lunch, we just purchase some Rosemary Cheddar and Pretzel Rolls. We snack on those. And a loaf of the crustiest seeded Jewish Rye for lunch this week.
Wish you were closer to Wilmington, NC!
Hoo boy. We've enjoyed CC many times over the years, but something has gone wrong. I had a side order of bacon that was literally burned to a crisp. Black, dry, and completely inedible. I'm shocked they actually served it. My wife's fried green tomatoes were similarly overcooked, as were the eggs in her Benedict. Strangely, another diner in our party had raw bacon in her sandwich. Not sure how you burn one batch and undercook another. I will give some credit to the manager who asked if everything was okay, and removed the bacon from my bill, but there are several points of failure here. They need to take a hard look at the standards being set, and make sure that everyone- cooks, servers, management- is responsible and accountable for good product. Eggs and bacon are not very difficult to prepare properly.
We were disappointed with our experience. We reserved a table for 6 and when we arrived there was not one available and it was not clear from the hostess when a table would be available. Our party included some senior citizens and this type of wait/indecision is not acceptable.
In addition, our service was less than average. One of our party ordered pancakes and there was no syrup. We asked for syrup right away and it never came. I had to leave the table and ask someone in the kitchen. Also, on a number of occasions, we waited too long for coffee refills. Again, not acceptable when breakfast dining.
The wait for the server to take our order was over an hour. After that, it took over 30 minutes to get our food. Glad we weren't having a "quick" business breakfast. They tried to refill our coffee every five minutes. I guess they thought that would keep us satisfied. Didn't even bring muffins until they brought the entrees. Really bad service experience.
Maybe it was the brunch rush but the service was really slow. Took over 20 mins for someone to even take our drink order. The waitress seemed like she was just doing too much to provide great service. Had to ask for drink refills with 3 different people. The food we received was cold. This place is typically great but definitely fell short this time. Bummer.
We have made reservations to suit our toddlers food and nap schedule. There were no tables available when we arrived. The manager informed us that reservations did not mean we would be seated at that time, merely that we had pioriy seating. We were seated 20 minutes late. The food arrived an hour later by which time our toddler was cranky and too tired to eat. We had to take her outside and ended up gulping our food and leaving. My veggie omelette arrived cold, it smelt fishy (cross contimanation) and had onion peel inside. The French toast bore no resemblance to actual French Toast and were sickly and disgusting. We were very dissappointed.
We made priority seating but arrived early since it was not a "reservation". We were pleased to see the table was set and ready for us. Service was great. We had young children and the staff all made an effort to speak to the children and were very kind. Food was really good, especially the French toast and the hash and benedicts.
I have been coming here for years and love the food but this is the first time I felt disappointed. They have changed their menu slightly and increased their prices albeit the portions seemed slightly larger but that is not what I am looking for at lunchtime. They no longer offer the option of combining a soup or salad with half a sandwich which is a big fail in my opinion. I will continue to visit occasionally but it will no longer be my go to place.
