Fantastic restaurant! Friendly staff and owner. We had arrived 30 minutes after they had stopped serving dinner @ 4pm. The owner still sat us down and served us chicken salad sandwiches and soup.

Melissa Brito

This place is so awesome! The food is amazing. The service is fantastic! I love how everyone is super nice. By far the best place to enjoy an amazing breakfast! When we come back that place will be the number one spot for us to come visit.

Joshua Padilla

The food was great! We were recommend by a local doctor. They said they had the best breakfast in town and they weren't kidding. My mother and I had brunch one morning and was greeted by a friendly host and waitress. We received our drinks and food in a timely fashion. After some time passed there was already a crowd of people inside the cafe. The place was bustling. Very lively place, great staff and very good food. I would recommend coming here not just for the breakfast, but also lunch as well.

Sam Nevarez

Breakfast here is awesome. You gotta try the pinion coffee and take some to go. Placita Platter is the way to go. Great friendly staff.

Angela Leisher

I absolutely love this place!! We came here every single morning for breakfast while we were in town. The service is impeccable. Every single person that works there greets you with the very best manners and is so friendly. The manager is very involved and very nice. My favorite waiter is Skyler- he’s so sweet!! And of course the food is amazing!! The biscuits are homemade and my dad really liked their biscuits with sausage gravy. They have great waffles and homemade cranberry pistachio granola that they serve with yogurt and fruit (my mom’s favorite.) I had the mixed berry crepes one day and they were really good but my favorite was the bagel and lox. They have fresh squeezed OJ and really good coffee. Finally, it’s perfect for kids! I have a 15 month old and they give the kids dough to play with, complete with cookie cutters, a mini rolling pin, and a cutting board! Oh and we got the lunch there one day too and it was REALLY good!! The spinach salad was one of the best I’ve ever had! This is our very favorite restaurant in Ruidoso!

Juanito b

This place is very clean (which is an amazing first impression) and the food was amazing.

Brandon McKnight

Absolutely delicious. A must for all of our holiday desserts. Also can conveniently order online and pick up.

Debbie Cooksey

Food was wonderful. It's so nice to come into a restaurant and management treats you like an old friend! Steve and Brian thank you for being you! Great job guys

Ski Demon

Arguably the best place to eat in Ruidoso. They don’t have a ton of vegan options- it is regular diner food. Very nice place to hang out and have coffee though! Good selection of fresh breads.

Michael Lovelace

Great service. Food was real tasty. Nice decor. Relaxed atmosphere.

Amber Bowlin

Always a great breakfast, and ambience. Huge selection, breakfast all day, and the owners work their tails off and do a fabulous job!

Douglas Carter

Great empanadas.

Dave Strickland

Awesome food and coffee. Perfect spot to start the morning on vacation.

susanne herbst

An amazing bakery and restaurant. Also it is kid friendly, they give children dough to play with. They also serve mimosas and thier self serve coffee bar is great. I have never had a bad Experiance.

Kent L

Great service from Brian. French toast was otherworldly. Would definitely return.

Wolfy_ playz

This was our first visist here, bu I won't be our last!!!! The atmosphere there was coffeehouse chic/ artistic/ professional with a new Mexico flare. The Bakery, was very clean,l and you can order both breakfast and lunch : My daughter had the on the pancakes on children's and mandrine oranges on the children's menus. She absolutely loved them, presentation and taste. Myself, I chose a devine chicken salad on a croissant. Wonderful and I paired it with a cup of green chili potatoe soup, oh so yummy!

Jac Angeles

It was so delicious. Very friendly staff ladies. Avoid going in the weekends or make a call to reserve a sit. On the weekends takes 1 hour to 1 and half hour of waiting to sit. They would ask your phone number to text you back when your table is ready.


Had dinner here and came back the next day for breakfast. Great food, bakery and service! Recommend the daily specials.

Darrell Tester

Its a nice place. I actually built this place . food is good. Breads are amazing. Staff is great. I recommend it to everyone. And the board room is a good place to have special meets ans conference.. Great job Steven G. Proud to have been able to help make your dream a reality.. Enjoy your building sir.

Sara Silver

Excellent food and excellent service!

Don Horner

Had the best green chillies and potatoe soup I've ever had!


I absolutely love this place. Their bread bowls are the best!!!!!! The broccoli cheddar soup is divine!!!! Such wonderful service and a great atmosphere! Love love love stopping in for lunch❤.

Chris Nicholson

The food was out of this world. Service was impeccable. Atmosphere was cozy. They brought out ginger bread cookies for the kiddos to decorate while they waited for their meals. Absolute 5 stars.

Shawn Hill

Best breakfast I've had in a long time!! Service was excellent. Everything was fresh and taste was awesome. One of my new fav$ for sure!!


Loved it here! There was a 15 minute wait but it was worth it. I had the Monterrey Chicken Sandwich minus the BBQ sauce (preference) & the green chili & potato soup & for dessert I opted for a slice of lemon meringue pie. It was all spectacular. Thank you to our server Jasmine for making our lunch special! The team from the hostess at the front counter, the manager for checking on us, and a gentleman that refilled our drinks, you provided excellent service. Keep up the great work! We'll be back!!!


Was there for a breakfast meeting, great food and friendly service. Watched the waitress accidentally spill syrup on a customer....

Bob Henze

A good recommendation from a friend. Friendly servers, good menu. Good food.

Kortney Garrett

Loved it. My kids love playing with the dough and the food is always great!

Hleumas H

Good food. Excellent service. Great owners!

Caitlin N

Homemade breads are fantastic! Everyone is always super happy, coffee is off the chain! We recommend the asiago cheese bread, sour dough, the blueberry muffins, and pinon coffee!!

Antonio Perea

From the moment my family and I walked in it was an amazing experience. Our server margaret was extremely friendly. The host was nice. As I sat there in the restaurant I watched the chef walk around asking everyone if they were ok. Everyone at this amazing establishment was on point. Cant wait to come back to this place.

Big Tex556

Fantastic place! Well manged establishment friendly people. Attentive staff and the food is fantastic. Go for breakfast the coffee bar is superb

Bruce Revennaugh

Great breakfasts. Worth the wait. You can make a reservation which helps avoid the lines to get in.

Robert Hodges

The food was bland and I spent $75 on a family of 5 on sandwiches. The waitress said they had new cooks, I was extremely disappointed after reading the reviews.


Amazing food friendly staff

Beth Hoffman

I LOVE this place. I can’t stop thinking about their breakfast. And their coconut macaroons. OMG! You have got to try them!


Very pretentious, clean. You get an aroma of apple with your strudel, but not any filling of substance, just dry, flaky pastry.

Ron Jon

Really Great Food, and Delicious Pastries. And a real friendly staff. Nice Atmospher.

taylor sivley

The food was good but the staff was amazing. We ate there this past Monday and I have never seen a manager who walked around and actually helped. The staff was so nice to my kids and brought them dough to play with while we waited for our food. We will definitely be going back!

Jesse Lee

Amazing food and great service! We come from the Midland/Odessa area and nothing can compare to this cafe. We will come here every time we visit Ruidoso.

amanda anderson

Got the apple empanadas at the suggestion of a regular in front of us. Best pastry i have ever eaten. The coffee is very good to. Sunday rush is no joke here.

Jr Falcon

It was awesome! Unable to finish it. It hurt me to leave behind the left overs.

Candy Matthews

So glad we made it part of our trip. Amazing food, staff and the pastries are so decadent

Ricardo Corral

Nice restaurant in the middle of Ruidoso. Definitely a great quick stop for some sweet bread before hitting the road! Although there is not a lot of options for sweet bread, the few types that they have are perfect, definitely quality over quantity. They do also serve a lot of food options for dine-in but I did not eat there so I cannot give a review about that.

Jake Dyck

Good service, food, and atmosphere. I really liked the lunch combo for $11. Half sandwich, cup of soup, and salad. Perfect sized meal. I indulged in a lemon meringue pie which had the perfect tartness! Would visit again!

Bonnie Smith

Wow! Great place! Loved the food. Nice presentation. Very good waitress. Yes, we will go back.

Ashley Busch

Best place in Ruidoso! So good we went twice! Amazing staff, super yummy food and baked goods, and their coffee was to die for! I absolutely recommed the Chia Latte, the Strawberry Mamosa, and Berry Crepes!

Isabella Richardson

This place has AMAZING food. I got the eggs Benedict and it was great, but a waiter had realized as it came out of the window that it was overcooked. He brought me a whole new plate before I even knew the first one was over cooked. The service is the best I have ever had. If I could rate above 5 stars I definitely would. Thanks Cornerstone for a great food experience.

Melanie Winter

Excellent, as always! Restaurant was clean, food came out fast and delicious, people were friendly. What's not to love?

Jason Rowe

This place is worth the wait, money, time and gas. Hands down best breakfast and staff! We waited 45 minutes to be seated @1030 a.m and another 45 min to get food. Long story short, our entire meal was comped due to a large to-go order backing up the kitchen. That's how you take care of customers.

Erika Morales

Waited an hour for sandwiches and salads. A couple arrived 20-30 after us and recieved their food before we we even had a chance to ask where the heck wad our salads. We asked to speak with manager and all she could say was "we just got a 16 top." I've worked in a restaurant capacity and if the table next to us received their hot food compared to our cold food we ordered there's no excuse for this. Honestly I truly believe this was racism to an extent. We were the only Hispanics and the only table not adequately served as all the fellow Anglo diners. Very sad. I love coming to Ruidoso and have been coming for decades and this has been a hideous experience. Waited about an hour for ther salads and tuna sandwich.

Gem Gem

It's a recommended breakfast restaurant near Quality Inn hotel. Overall, this place is Amazing! I ordered pulled BBQ pork brisket with mac and cheese and a cup of coffee

Chad Stephens

Wow , amazing food , amazing staff and service .. the best I've been to in a very long time .. we will definitely be back when we were in the area.. keep up the great work

Rebecca Leonard

The Cornerstone is celebrating 20 yrs serving our village! Great food & pastries

Dina Ortega

Ask for Cheyanne the best server around!

Clint Hastings

Was going to give it 3 stars when we were there but they made up for the lack luster service from our server. Food is really good the owner was really cool. We came in just for coffee and walked out about $50.00 later after seeing the menu and all the baked goods. Highly recommend!

John Childress

Great. Friendly staff and good food.

Alex Sanders

Food was great, lots of healthy options and various breakfast foods. Service was phenomenal as well. Would highly recommend!

Sarah Lopez

We went on vacation in Ruidoso for the weekend and ate here Saturday and Sunday morning. Here and there a few of our side items were missing and the wait was a little long but the environment was amazing. Every person who worked there was friendly and tried to make our experience there a good one. I would definitely recommend and will be going back.

Tom Moorhead

Excellent menu for breakfast all day and lots of bakery goodies!

Erick M Cedeno

Cornerstone was amazing. The staff was great, very polite, attentive and accommodating to anything you needed. The food was plentiful and just absolutely delicious. The restaurant is very nice and the lighting is perfect, has a feel of having outside (natural) lighting, but it was actually the lighting set up. Very tranquil. It was an awesome choice for our breakfast.

Sandy Burt

Good is good. Many bakery goods are unique to NM and we'll done.

El Profe Viajero

Best Place not only in Ruidoso but in at least 100 miles around!!!...Love the atmosphere, in love with the food, service is awesome!!!..."You're gona love it its gonna be great, its gonna be fantastic " absolutely nobody will be fired from Cornerstone Bakery, they do such a great job, such an amazing job, absolutely no wall around this great restaurant, but you will still have to pay for your meal...thank you very much.

Roger Felker

Great food, coffee, and desserts. Over priced though.

Michael Nunez

We love the new location! This is our favorite restaurant in Ruidoso. The food and staff are wonderful. A must visit for us! I highly recommend!

Dusty Lowery

IThe whole eating experience was phenomenal. The food was wonderful and the service, especially Margaret, our awesome; thank you. We came from Santa Fe, New Mexico, supposedly they eating capital of New Mexico, and this place out shined anything in Santa Fe for breakfast.

Jerry &Lisa Young

Mushroom Tarragon soup was lumpy, usually love this place, not sure what is going on.

Athena Harrelson

Wonderful atmosphere, and awesome service and out of this world food!!!

Claire N

The good: cute decor, warm and friendly atmosphere, friendly and helpful waitstaff, large menu and bakery, tasty baked goods and decent food. Bathrooms were spacious and clean. They give dough and mini baking gear to kids before the meal to pass the time. The bad: I found a piece of plastic in my eggs Benedict. The food also came out cold but the waitress reheated it. Our pie slice was delicious but also had a piece of plastic or paper in it.

D Leonelli

Great food and service. Long wait from being so popular.

Lauriann Carrillo

The green chilie potato soup is amazing

Carolyn Free

Fresh squeezed mimosas and a coffee bar

Digi Gil

Okay, baked goods look great. Beautiful cinnamon roll, but they need raisins! Maybe some nuts!? Why not toss in some pine nuts? The frosting was way too sweet and thick?! Cook needs to not send out brown eggs! Brown means burnt! Used to be a short order cook, still can count the times on my ten fingers I had to redo eggs! Now I wish I ordered off the side menu like my date! Slow down, cook the food once! I didn't send the eggs back. The eggs looked great, next time I'll order soft scramble! Wanted to eat here last year I was here, didn't get the chance! Maybe I'll eat here again, we'll see.

Mike Jones

Superb place for breakfast and lunch. Get there before 7AM for breakfast, it fills up fast. Lunch is so packed it's better to make reservations early. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Jacob Schutt

Food and service was superb. Would have been 5 stars if not for the wait. Several open spots throughout the wait and appeared to have plenty of staff to accommodate. Needs to improve greatly in that area.

Robert Truax

Loved the breakfast and the pastries! Chocolate chip cookies and cherry empanadas were so good! Loved our wait staff and the fact thst our 2 boys got to decorate a free gingerbread cookie made it all the more memorable!

Aurora Sabates

The food was great! The restaurant atmosphere is awesome. Love the pictures and art of the walls!

Kassie Fairbanks

Sooo delicious. Worth every penny. The atmosphere was great. They had a long wait, so we got our food to go and found a tree shaded corner in the hills to eat in. 10/10 would eat here again.

Derek Tiffany

Great sit down breakfast! Got pastries to go and wasn't that impressed with them!

Kelly Naber

We went here for lunch, and when we were seated, less than half the tables had customers. Our order was taken quickly, but it was 40 minutes later before we finally got our club sandwiches. The clubs were supposed to be on a special chili cheese bread, but the bread just seemed normal. We asked the waitress if that was the special bread, at which point she told us , oh the kitchen ran out of that. Thanks for letting us know. Food was ok, service was ok, but I definitely expected much better based on other reviews.

Carmen Gamboa

Fantastic food, coffee and service

Ruth Vigil

Such a delightful place! The food is delicious and a good variety to choose from! The Orange juice is freshly squeezed and naturally sweet!

Arissa Klumker

Wonderful customer service and food!

Philip Teaney

The food was amazing, the portions were ginormous, and our server, Jasmine, was awesome! I would definitely recommend this place for an incredible experience!


ALWAYS AMAZING!!! The piñon coffee is a must every time we are in town! They have an EXCELLENT selection of gluten free options as well! Made my heart and tummy happy!

Chris Knioum

Excellent food, friendly staff, nice decor, reasonable prices. We go there every time we come to Ruidoso!

lisa ables

My fave for breakfast in doso. We make sure we visit at least once every visit to town.

Samantha Kostedt

Very friendly staff. Amazing food. Amazing coffee. I would highly recommend going and waiting! The wait was 40 minutes but it was totally worth it! If you don't want to wait they also have take out so you can call it in and go get it!!

Wendy Carreon

Love the coffee bar food was very delicious service was excellent

Jimmy Chaney

This place is amazing. They have a great menus with great food as well as 70% of their menu can be made gluten free. Can’t wait to eat here every time we come to town.

Rojo Moonman

Definitely a place to eat while in Ruidoso.

Marc Pacheco

We were in town for 2 days and both days we ate breakfast here. 1st day was amazing that's why we returned. 2nd day was ok. We were there for almost 3 hours and Order was incorrect but the management was very professional and made sure they made it right. The OJ was very good. Very good food and was worth the wait. We will probably return when we visit Ruidoso again. Reccomend that you call ahead.


Busy place. Self serve coffee while waiting (for a charge) & get it yourself when seated . The carrizozo crepe was good. The belen biscuit & gravy was to spicy for breakfast. A bit over-hyped.

Diana Prieto

At first I was excited about this restaurant, as my friends and I were seated we were greeted by our server and we placed our order. It had been almost 45 minutes since our cold dish orders were placed and as we waited, several other customers were seated and served within 20 minutes, I had noticed that we were the only Hispanic customers inside the restaurant and as we questioned about our order , other servers had given the same response that our order was on the way. Finally almost an hour we were fed up and asked to cancel our order and speak to the manager. As we explained the situation the manager she would not show any compassion and continued talking over us saying they had many tables which was the reason our order had taken as long as it did. We had mentioned that 2 other customers arrived almost 30 minutes after us and they received their hot plates before us. The manager had the worst customer service skills and we have never felt such rasicm at an establishment

Mariana Ortega

The staff and the food are both wonderful! The GM, Brian, was very accommodating for my large party that unexpectedly ended up at his establishment. They stayed late for us, and did so with a smile and with great service. Plus, the food was absolutely delicious! I highly recommend the green chile potato soup. I even took some home with me. I can't recommend this place enough!

M de la rosa

Went to this place on a Monday to have breakfast and was extremely disappointed. After the wait time made breakfast into lunch, I was left seriously disappointed. I had visited this restaurant a couple of times before and my family and I really enjoyed ourselves, so it was a shock to have such a terrible experience. I don’t know if a change in management/ owner occurred but it started with the hostess giving us the wrong wait time and to top it off having a poor attitude about it. It gets really annoying when customers arrive after you and even point out to you that you should Have been seated before them. I bring it up to the manager on duty and he does not address the issue or better the situation. No solution, reassurance that the issue will get corrected and no empathy. We get seated (finally, over an hour,) empty tables everywhere and the only positive thing I could say was the server was really nice after it was all said and done. We order our food and another 40 minutes of wait time for the food. We get our food and the first bite out of the grilled chicken in the salad was not only raw but still kind of frozen. It was so disgusting I couldn’t even eat after that, it didn’t matter when they offered to make me something else! The last thing that should ever been undercooked is chicken and you don’t have to be a cook or work in food services to know that. Again approach the manager with my concern and frustration and once again looks at me with no empathy or solution and tells me he takes pride in his restaurant and that he understood. Understand? What is there to understand?! The chicken your kitchen just serviced is RAW and that has nothing to do with pride. After my family finished eating while I sat and watched, the manager tells our server to give us half off the meal. I look at the receipt and the chicken salad is still listed and the half off includes that gross chicken, so I ask the server, what half the manager was talking about. I would of rather just have him take the chicken off since it was not edible and possibly a bacteria pool and pay for what my family did eat. The server leaves and another ten minutes while my family is waiting in the car for me to pay, the manager comes strolling back and tells me, “ I thought taking half off was fair but you still weren’t happy so I just compted the whole meal.” It’s not pride you have in your restaurant, it’s arrogance and you can’t tell me other wise. The only reason I didn’t tell him to wipe that smug arrogant attitude off his face was because I didn’t want to disrespect other customers who were eating nearby. This guy thought it was about being fair? It’s not about being fair at this point, it was more of damage control of the poor quality in service, if you ask me. I bit into raw chicken after a ridiculous wait time and a crummy attitude from the hostess. You aren’t paying me to eat at your establishment or doing me any fairs favors and the lack of this guys leadership is what made this experience that much more miserable. He had some nerve acting like he did me a solid by not charging me, believe me, free food isn’t the answer. If I had cash on me instead of my debt card I would have left the money on the table because of the lack of leadership/ arrogant attitude this unprofessional guy threw just encouraged me me never to go back to this restaurant. I have over 15 years in being In Law enforcement and my family member the manager was also rude to almost has ten years in law enforcement and I can assure you, We have never treated a person with such disregard to empathy or with such poor attitudes for customer service. After wasting three and a half hours of my vacation and leaving me so disappointed, I have to say that this establishment will never get my business.

Justin McCasland

Wonderful breakfast and brunch. Great coffee and pastries as well.

Collin Barnett

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed eating here. Breakfast served all day! Good food!

Tony R

Amazing service and great quality food. Management is also great. We had ask for our French Toast to be reheated since we didn't get to it right (our fault). They ended up bringing a whole new fresh order. Guaranteed I'll be a returning customer. PS try loaded potatoes.

Mary Ellen Keller

Delicious omelets. Good service.


Delicious food and great service

Jennifer Brewer

Thank you Cornerstone for your delicious food and your generosity to all those working to restore power.

Dawn Swearingin

Best broccoli cheese soup I've ever tasted...every Thursday Steve, the owner, says.

Lisa Willman

I love love love this place. They handle every quirky adjustment to the order imagined. (We have a militant vegetarian in the group) dont get back on the road going home till you eat breakfast here.

Aleise Elsenboss

Great service, they had said 35 min wait time but it ended up being about 20 min and this was on a Sunday at 11:30 so not bad. Food was good. I wish they had more vegan options and some vegan baked goods but other then that it was good.

Jackie Waggoner

The owners and all of the staff are absolutely outstanding! Probably one of the best places if not the best place to get fresh baked good and wonderful breakfast.

Mik McGuire

Very good! Chai tea latte was amazing!

Elle Akers

We did not come for breakfast, we just got pastries and coffee to go. It was very crowded, but the coffee and the food was worth it!

Ashley Ward

Delicious breakfast, delicious pies, friendly service, clean and cute restaurant. We were visiting from out of town and this was the best food we found all week!

Priscilla S. Owens

Best breakfast in Ruidoso. Something for everyone, even gluten free bread.

Jaynel Beadles

Great food, atmosphere, and service!!!

Michelle Cochran

It was a cute bakery and had lots of sweets.

Chris Metevier

One of the, if not the best, place to eat in Ruidoso, NM. I highly recommend this cafe and can't say enough about it. Service was awesome and they work as a team. The manager makes the rounds and is accessible. The food is great with attention to presentation and detail. We left with boxes from the bakery as well. Don't miss it or you're going to have to come back.

Jesse Finley

Great breakfast and lunch. Everything is made from scratch. Would recommend getting reservations as the wait for a table can get pretty long on weekends.

Kelly Finn

Love this place. But, showed up and they are late to open. Now 708 I called and Jessica said we will be open soon but no ETA... Had to update and downgrade my rating. I was called soon after my 2 star rating. My vm stated they had a huge order and lost track of time. Myself, and the 8 to 10 people behind me remarked we could see people standing around looking at us. And when they did open the door I noticed no good morning or sorry for delay. Not one word. So pretty uninviting. I downgraded my rating because they got my order wrong for 5 people, and forgot salsa which I politely requested twice so they didnt forget. To top it off, I ordered close to $200 worth of coffee and food, and when I forgot to order myself a small cup of coffee they turned around and made me purchase it when years past they've given me my coffee for free even when requested. Just lost the touch they had it seems. I know where to order the coffee for cheaper, but I paid more for my once a year visit. Disappointing

Pam Brasher

It was good. Wish they had more contemporary choices.


Love it! Super Delicious food! Beats Log Cabin by far! Very Clean and friendly! Kids Love to play with dough instead of crayons.

Janet Santackas

I've always enjoyed this place. However, the prices are a little high, especially for a glass of orange juice. I love fresh squeezed, however, $5 for a glass is insane, especially when 32oz of simply orange costs roughly $4.29, so I was shocked when I got my bill. I do highly recommend this place because it's always DELICIOUS.


A favorite spot for breakfast whenever I visit Ruidoso.

Jesse Galindo

Amazing place to eat. Service is exceptional and super friendly.They make you feel very welcome. The best in town!

Thomas Avery

Fabulous breakfasts, very good coffee, and great bakery

Mason Fenn

Haven been several times hoping that maybe this time it will be a little faster. Nope not ever going to happen...over 2 hours and a waist of my day. Usually the food at least comes out fairly quick and hot!! That would not be the case today. Not only was our food cold by the time it got to the table they forgot the food for my 2 year old grandson. Or they said it was not finished yet and it would be right out. Well after another 15 minutes he did finally get his food....also cold!! We have been back several times hoping for a better experience....I think we have finally figured out that is just not going to happen. No matter how good the food has the potential to be it is not worth all that. Good food overwhelmed and undertrained staff!

renee young

Amazing food and service. Broccoli cheddar soup is wonderful.

Ruth Burkett

Crepes. Salads. Jumbo omelettes, yummy baked goods and good service. Everything one expects and more

Ana Cruz

This is "The Place for Breakfast" absolutely delicious. Ingredients are always fresh, food is perfect and their coffe is the best. Portions are big so be carefull if you think you can add that extra stack of pancakes ( their pancakes are absolutely delicious, you have to try them). They have lots of pastries, cookies, cake, quiche and more. They also serve lunch and is also great. Employees are awesome and they always take care of you. Excellent customer service. Great place to visit with family and/or friends.

Don Davis

Had a great lunch. Delicious! Lots of things to choose from. Freshly made bread.

John Wayne Johnson

The best as always. 50 min wait, but worth it and there because everyone knows how good it is. Green chili potato soup is a winner every time. The Thunderbolt coffee is just the best COFFEE I have ever had. And the Sunrise muffins are a warm piece of heaven on a plate.

Josefina Gonzalez

Yummy bread. Yummy mocha latte. Yummy soup.

Sue Martinez

It is worth the wait...and there is usually a wait. Coffee and breakfast is yummy. Closed on Wednesday.

Jessica Reynolds

My favorite bakery in town. The blueberry muffins are my favorite!!! And the coffee is so good. I highly recommend Cornerstone! They also have a full menu with lots of great food- Eggs Benedict is the best, ask for a side of chopped green chile to go with it, you will be glad you did!!

Larry Trujillo

Loved it! Great coffee and breakfast! Must visit!

Shane Johnson

We stop in for dessert every time we're in town. The pies are great and the staff is very friendly.

Mike Ristom

I love this place. The food and service are excellent. Fresh baked goods and gourmet coffee. The menu has a New Mexico flair. Breakfast is served all day.

Jake Reitz

Great food and service, we'll eat here every time we go to Ruidoso. Kids love the dough and cookie cutters while we wait for our food, very unique

Karie Peters

We love going to this place as a local spot to grab coffee. However can't say I'll come back on a holiday weekend ever. Disorganized chaos in front of and behind the counter. It took 23 minutes to get 2 cups of coffee

Alfred f. Gallegos

Best breakfast! The place was packed but we were soon sat down and waited on. The sticky buns were so tasty and fresh. The omelette were good and everything we ordered was good.

Waited over an hour while there were multiple tables open. Food was extremely cold. Service was terrible.

Great service and food!!


Ok so when in Ruidoso you must stop in here for breakfast be sure to call early to reserve your spot it fills up quick because the food is phenomenally good. Best omelets by far fluffy egg smothered in an amazing sauce topped with cheese Wow! The staff was very welcoming and prompt they were very eager to please and accommodate us. This is a must do when visiting. #mustdo #cornerstonebakery

The Tomato Basil Soup and the Green Chile Potato Soup are amazing. Our server was Reagan, she was very good. Would have given five stars, but the salad was not fresh and there was only toilet paper to dry hands in the restrooms.

Great place for breakfast and lunch. Wonderful bakery treats baked in house. Go early, this is the most popular place in town.
