Review: Carol's Cornerstone Cafe

Nostalgia surrounds the Historic National Road, US Highway 40, which cuts across the center of Indiana, and this is especially so at Carol’s Cornerstone Café. It’s located just two blocks east of the Hancock County courthouse in Greenfield, at Main Street (US 40) and Spring Street. The Antique cars, Gas Station signs, fireplace and memorabilia set the tone for a comfortable place to eat, relax, and even listen to homegrown gospel and bluegrass music on some evenings. The menu is large, the food reasonably priced, the evening buffet well stocked, and the help will make you feel at home. The fried chicken is juicy and tasty. As you can see from the picture, the tenderloin may not be huge, (it’s just right) but it’s obviously freshly cut, hand breaded, juicy and extremely tender. And it’s just $7.75 including two homemade sides or salad bar. The salad bar has several homemade salads, and the buffet has plenty of homemade items, like chicken and noodles, fried chicken, ham, and sides. Our server, Charity, was very friendly and let us know that when they had music in the evenings, people were known to fill the center isle dancing. With its comfortable nostalgic setting and wide assortment of freshly made entrees reasonably priced, we will be riding back to this gem of a Café often!
