Cornerstone Cafe & Coffee is a family owned and operated cafe and coffee house. With the goal of sparking new life and new flavor to a small town, we set out to deliver healthier eating options while maintaining great Southern charm.  


Our Brews

Cornerstone's gourmet specialty coffee and house blends offer the most consistent and flavorful product available and the difference is clear with every sip.  Stop in and try our house, espresso, frappucino or blended coffees. 


The Sandwich & Salad

A great sandwich starts with great bread and our artisan breads and wraps are made from the finest ingredients and served fresh daily. Only the freshest ingredients are incorporated into our dishes, and each one is made to order. 


Our Waffles

Yes - big, fluffy and absolutely delicious Belgian waffles aren't just for breakfast.  Cornerstone serves these beauties all day, every day.  Covered with all sorts of fantastic toppings, I'm sure you'll find your favorite... but you may have to try all just to be sure.


Cornerstone offers an incredible atmosphere, fantastic food, healthier options, and great company.  Be sure to stop in and experience goodness... you'll be glad you did!
