The smells of bread baking and freshly brewed coffee welcome guests to Corner Café and Buckhead Bread Company. The terra cotta building houses a full-service, European-style bakery offering a daily selection of baked-on-site pastries, bread, cookies and specialty desserts, a coffee bar serving the locally-roasted Pano’s Reserve Blend coffee and a café with a variety of breakfast and lunch selections, including salads, soups, sandwiches and desserts. It’s the perfect stop for an eye-opening morning coffee, an enjoyable lunch, baked goods to take home or all the components for a delightful picnic. Open seven days a week. Corner Cafe accepts "reserve ahead priority seating," which will reduce your wait time by half.

Server was great, but forgot a smoothie. He brought it in to go cup and didn't charge us. I would definitely go back. :)

Great place for a casual lunch. The food is top-notch here -- probably the best lamb sandwich in town. Unfortunately, our table for 3 was two very small rounds pushed together, which is not an ideal set-up. And it was right next to the service station! Not what I expected after reserving Priority Seating because we were celebrating a birthday.
Nevertheless, it's fun to shop the bakery after eating, and nice that they give 20% off your purchase because you dined there.

We ate at Corner Cafe two days in row while in town for the Super Bowl, once for brunch and once for breakfast. We were seated promptly for our reservation on Saturday (even though it was very busy) and again as walk ins the next day. Each of the servers we had were great - helpful and checked in with us just the right frequency. Both the brunch food and the breakfast food was outstanding. Very flexible on substitutions. Good local vibe. Highly recommended.

Lovely food. Service needs work. Seems like communication, initiative and attention to detail are lacking. Perhaps it’s due to the lack of cutlery available....

Ordered white choc french toast and it was horrible. Took one bite and left the rest on the plate. Waste of money. left starving. went and spent $25 to eat somewhere else. Like their lunch better. Also too noisey to have a conversation. And tables are so close that your neighbors can jear every word you say. Had a bad experience and wont come here again unless for take out. Too many much better restaurants around to leave dissatisfied.

I was so disappointed yesterday with the food at your restaurant. I took my co-worker for her birthday. She ordered salmon and it was unavailable. Then she ordered chicken which was dry with no sauce or cream. The vegetable medley was broccoli and asparagus. The asparagus was unfit to eat. It was discolored and appeared to be old, no color and limp. After the chicken was not good, they told her that they now had salmon which they finally prepared for her. Then the red velvet cheesecake which she received "on the house" was so dry that you couldn't eat it. The cheesecake part was good but not the cake part. The waiter tried everything to make the experience better but it was just not working. We did enjoy the peach bellini's which we had. I would not recommend this restaurant to a friend or anyone else. I have used the Buckhead restaurants for years and this was my first very poor experience.

Restaurant was so noisy we couldn't hear each other to have a conversation. The food was mediocre at best, nothing special. The eggs benedict were like hard boiled eggs. Would not recommend this when there are so many unique and great restaurants in Atlanta.

When were there to celebrate a birthday. It’s took 45 minutes from the time we ordered to the time our food came out. Granted it was a party of 6 but that was to long. We couldn’t find our waiter for over 20 minutes to get the status we had to ask another waiter. The waiter told the manager that we wanted to talk to her, she looked at us and keep doing what she was doing. Never addressing the issue or us. This is now the 3rd time we have come in and experience waits of 45 minutes to an hour to get food, even with a party of 2! I’m sure we won’t be back as the service is not great!

Too cramped & noisy to enjoy Sunday brunch. Could hear conversations on either side of us. Would’ve done better to walk into the bakery and order to go. Bagel was served cold with hard cream cheese on the side and avocado toast was nothing special

Typically the Corner Café is wonderful, but I cannot recommend the "Priority Seating" option. We put in for priority seating for 11:30am and showed up at 11:25am. All the "priority seating" did for us is that we didn't have to tell them our party size. We were seated close to noon -- a 35 minute wait, which was standard for everyone (priority or not). There's no value to this service.

I'll start off by saying I have frequent Corner Cafe in the past with no issues. This time o decided to try something different.

I ordered the chicken and waffle. The Belgian waffle should be 4 pieces my order came with 3. The waitress stated it's 3 pieces because of the chicken. How do you make a Belgian waffle and give the customer 3 pieces? That's so weird.
The chicken was 2 pieces of chicken breast which was more like chicken tenders. It was good but small portion.

My sister ordered the buttermilk pancakes and she added the syrup. Apparently the syrup is 100% organic, which they don't tell you, but my sis knew after tasting it because she's not fond organic syrup. The waitress did get her a new stack of pancakes.

Lastly, the homemade chicken sausage..... The bomb. I would go back just for the chicken sausage.
