SOUTHERN food. redefined.


Welcome to Cafe on the Corner.

What was once the town grocery in the early 1900’s has been repurposed as a place of community — a comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy food. With exposed brick walls, original hardwood floors and the stacked stone fireplace — I like to think of the restaurant as a reflection of my Southern home. I serve you food the way I would at home — from using local produce to the white tablecloths. Our food is a reflection of the meals we’ve loved since childhood — just with a little flair. We are committed to freshness and preparing meals with seasonal locally sourced food — you’ll notice the flavor in our dishes. We serve lunch and dinner daily and brunch on Sundays. 

So take the ten minute drive up the mountain and enjoy a dining experience that is truly memorable. Sit near our fireplace or on our patio, it’s one of the best in the city.

I look forward to meeting you,
