    Have been to this restaurant many times over the years. The food is good and consistent. While the place was not completely full, the noise level was challenging for regular conversation. It wasn't only voices - dropped dishes, trays, silverware sounds were extremely loud. A little sound attenuation would go a long way.

    The food is good but a bit over priced. Even though I had a reservation, I still had to wait to be seated. The parking situation there is atrocious, so if you're planning on going for lunch, make sure you get there very early to allow enough time to find a space.

    This is a regular breakfast place. The omelet I had was mediocre, nothing special. My girlfriend had the sliced salmon and a pancake with chocolate chip, these were both really good. Service was excellent.

    Timeless. Dee-Lish. There is something about this restaurant for gathering- we were two for lunch. Always tasty, love the atmosphere. Friendly and very good service. Knowledgable staff who are at our service! The weekend menu is different than Mon-Fri; understandable of course- the Brunch menu has many delectable choices.

    My Friend Girls & I wanted to do a Saturday Morning Brunch, hence the normal restaurants we frequent. I researched on open table and found Corner Cafe. Upon reading the reviews, we decided this would be the place for our up & coming brunch. Needless to say we were very pleased with the atmosphere, the service, and the food. Our waiter was attentive & very knowledgeable with menu choices. Definitely will frequent Corner Cafe for future brunches.

    We love the food here, but the portions are enormous! I literally ate half my omelet breakfast at the restaurant and enjoyed the remainder the next day at home for breakfast. The food and fruit are very fresh and the complementary muffins to start are a tasty treat. It is very noisy here because of the hard floors, but it is OK after church. They have great coffee selections, too!

    Twice a year we visit Atlanta for the Gift Market. It is mandatory to stop here for breakfast on the way out of town. I doesn't matter if we stay in Buckhead or downtown. The food is consistently that good. This visit- Crab cakes Eggs Benedict. WOW! Don't forget to take home ANY of their baked goods!

    The food was delicious. The service was outstanding. We had a gathering of family visiting from the east coast and Midwest. They enjoyed themselves immensely. And the Corner Cafe helped immeasurably with that. Whether we chose traditional breakfast items (waffles, pancakes, etc.) or lunch items (sandwiches, fries), everything was done to perfection.

    We went on a Saturday for brunch. The brunch menu wasn't as extensive as we'd hopes, but our choice was great. I'd definitely recommend the crab cake eggs benedict; however, the description of "jumbo" crab cake is a bit misleading. The crab cake portions were rather small. Overall, great brunch spot and definitely worth giving a try!

    So we checked in at the front and was told that wait time was approximately 30 mins. Was not pleased with this. What is the point of putting in a reservation if you have that long of a wait? Food was mediocre. For the price, I was expecting more.

    We went for an early brunch with mixed reviews from around our table. I had a great egg white veggie omelet with a wonderful bowl of berries on the side (for an extra $1.50). My son had a plain waffle that tasted sour, it was awful without syrup. The pancakes were good and once shared with my son, made for a happier brunch. The service was spotty in that we either had 3 people asking us if we needed anything or no one could be found. All in all good place for brunch.

    Having been here for brunch several times before, I was confident that this would again be a great experience. However, perhaps the Chef was off on vacation, or maybe having an off-day, but the food was worse than any brunch experience I've had in Atlanta. The "grits of the day", usually well worth trying and never missing target, were watery and tasteless (tomato & goat cheese - although the color was a little pink, there was no taste of either in the dish). Additionally, the hollandaise sauce cooled to a rubbery solid within minutes of arriving at the table. Really disappointed, and will not be returning, nor recommending to others. It's a shame, as we've sent so many people here before, I am now doubting their experiences.

    Tried Corner Cafe for the first time on Easter Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. With Priority Seating, we were seated immediately (may have helped that we opted for 10AM) at a bright window table. Immediately approached by our server, who checked back often throughout our meal. My husband and I both ordered eggs benedict, mine was fried green tomato and his was with steak. Delicious but the sourdough bread that it was served on was tough and hard to cut. Both of us needed steak knives, which were readily provided. Unlimited coffee, even provided to-go cups when we asked to take the leftover minimuffins home with us. We would definitely go here again.

    My wife and I went for brunch before an afternoon show at the Fox Theater. We arrived about 10:15 and sat down to a great pot of organic cofffee, and good conversation. The restaurant is pleasant, and the staff was too. However, about 30 minutes later we finished our pot of coffee, and the manager came over to tell us that the waitress had never submitted our order. It took another 20 minutes, but when it came, it was very good. Fortunately, we were not in a hurry, or it would have been more uncomfortable. The manager took care of us, and was quite gracious. We'll give them another try.

    With an outstanding brunch menu and excellent service, Corner Cafe is the place to be in Buckhead (Atlanta) on a Sunday morning/afternoon. And if one is smart,, after brunch, one will walk to the other side of the cafe and take advantage of the Buckhead Bread Company! Both are highly recommended.
