We have been here many times as the food it good, BUT the service is so bad, servers are unwelcoming and unkind, most of them look unhappy and annoyed to have to do the job they are paid for. Service is very slow so if...your in a rush this is not the place for you. Trying to get take out...... good luck they never pick up the phone and if they do they are annoyed that your calling.More

My family and I visited the Corner Cafe for lunch and were made to feel like second rate citizens. The host person was atrocious! Rude. Unkind. Annoyed with us. Given her demeanour, we will NEVER visit again (this was our second visit). Our waitstaff was...decent, but, having such an ice cold reception, I would recommend skipping this restaurant (especially if a family with a child!).More

we stopped in for dinner after a long day of wandering around meaford and Thornbury. Our table ordered fish and chips, Buffalo chicken salad wrap, beef and mushroom pot pie, and chicken tenders with a side if French onion soup. I'll admit, we can be...a fussy group, but Oh My Damn. The food was fabulous and the staff was super friendly.More

Servers need training, we waited for 10 mins to be seated we were the only people in line with empty tables everywhere then another 10 minutes to order drinks people who came in after us had wine and had ordered their meals before we even...ordered our drinks we had to call the waitress over just to bring us water We come here all the time the food is good but the servers seem annoyed, I noticed the exact same service two days ago I don’t think will be coming back here.More

We stopped here as a cheaper place to eat than crowded Blue Mountain Village, and my kids thanked me. It’s located beside the Mill Cafe, and tables spaced on the paved expanse behind the Corner Cafe are serviced carefully by staff at Hester St. The...Corner is a decent place to order local cider, schnitzel, fish and yummy chips, onion rings or soup. For dessert we crossed to Pom Pom (kitty corner hut by the pizza/laundromat) for ice cream at Arthur-Bruce, open 1-6:00. On Thursdays, you can order donut ice cream sandwiches ($6 with various flavours). Their specialties are $3-7 scoops: Crouching Tiger tail; the best Black cherry; white choc raspberry; banana; unbeatable choc chip cookie dough; PB muddle. Bread & Butter espressos are on the other side of the cafe, under Smitty’s Bikes on Bruce. For some reason there’s no visible signage for Corner Cafe, except on Bruce St. Look for the black umbrellas & awning then wait outside for a free table, facing the Mill on Hester. It’s arguably one of the most popular eats, in the centre of quaint Thornbury!More

Stopped in on a long drive for lunch. Quick service and the meal was very good. Nice atmosphere and not too crowded. We were there early on a Saturday night and the wings are good. We’ll be back on our next trip through Thornbury.

My wife and I ordered some appetizers during a local citizen’s group meeting. The dry rub chicken wings were nice and crispy and our server provided us with two dipping sauces. The fries were a bit on the over-crunchy side but the gravy(non gluten-free) was...good and the gluten-free dipping sauce was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and was able to steer us away from the fresh garlic, glutens and lactose that we try to avoid eating. The buffalo cauliflower bites sounded wonderful but weren’t gluten-free.More

We had not eaten here for some time, previously the food was good value and well prepared. This time we ordered for pickup, fish and chips, the fish batter was overcooked and tough the fish tasteless. the sweet potato fries soggy. Given the cost $39.95...for the two meals and the fact that it was almost inedible, this is the last time we will favour this restaurant.More

Really good food with big portions. I like the chicken wings! Great variety of menu for a pub. Cool energy in the place. Locals, yet you don't feel out of place. Great big benches for a crowd.
