We stay in Ruidoso every Thanksgiving. We always go to the Cornerstone bakery. They are the best in town. The staff is always friendly. The baked goods are delicious. It's always a wonderful way to start the day!

We stayed in Ruidoso for a week and ate here for breakfast everyday! The friendliness is just as good as the food! Amazing bread as well! We enjoyed meeting the owner and his staff were very friendly and attentive. My wife had a green chilie omelet that she just loved! We will go there again if we get the opportunity... More

We eat here as often as we can! The breakfast is what initially brought us in, but lunch and the pastries are just as amazing! The best part of the Cornerstone experience is Steven and his great staff. They have the best customer service in town! Cornerstone is a must if you are in Ruidoso.

We have been eating here for years, every time we are in Ruidoso. Their breakfast is always great, staff very friendly and fast. They have a selection of different types of coffee. We love to bring home some of their fresh bread home to San Antonio. They have a number of different sweets to choose from. We understand they will... More

Our son and daughter-in-law recommended this place & we're so glad we went! It was a Sunday morning and we had to wait about 25 minutes but there's no question it's worth it. While we were waiting we found that visitors to the area return again and again. The service is warm, friendly and quick. Make this a "must stop"... More

During our weekend trip to Ruiodoso we visited the cornerstone bakery and Café for breakfast on Saturday morning, it had about a 20 minute wait but based off the reviews that we saw we decided to wait. While you wait they will let you drink from their coffee bar, which made the wait seem like nothing at all. The wait... More

quaint little place with great coffee, bakery items but also breakfast and lunch. It can be a little hard to get into at times but there is always a steady stream of take out orders so the parking lot can make it look full but there is still seating. Everything is fresh if you order there but take out pies,... More

We never get out of here with "just" our meal.... you see, they have a fantabulous bakery and my husband's eyes are ALWAYS big when it comes to chocolate chip cookies... then he needs a pie... and I'm not gonna lie... I had to have a chocolate croissant... I haven't had it yet, but I've never had anything bad here!... More
