The cornerstone is a great place to have lunch, especially on a sunny afternoon. I like the soups and salads and usually have them. Recommend highly.

The menu here is really unique and tailored to use local foods. The food was really tasty and the portions were good. The service was nice and the tables were not crammed together. Parking was a bit haphazard but they are on a main street.
