Wow picking my favorite is tough as everything I have eaten here is the bomb. Fresh desserts ice tea and cute items I bought for my wife. We enjoyed breakfast so much we took out orders for dinner that night and desserts. Go here they will not disappoint.
Loved all of the food and desserts I wished they shipped! We bought the Croissants you bake at home LOVED them
Let me tell you how happy this sandwich just made me...the perfectly cooked portobello mushroom, spinach and roasted red peppers (with the most amazing green chili cheddar bread) explode in a perfect marriage of flavors in your mouth! Add fresh avocado and tomato, you will not be sorry. My only regret was not doubling up on the even more perfect kale cole slaw! I highly recommend my new lunch favorite which I might add; will be driving up from Roswell at least once a week!! Delicioso!!!! The staff is superb as well!! *****
Always great breakfast! Excellent friendly staff in a Christian environment
Super green chilie omelette. Will come back soon
My breakfast burrito was delicious, filling and I am so pleased at the measures you all are taking to keep your employees and customers safe!
Excellent service and great food!!
Yesterday we stopped in and I tried the Fruits of the Forest pie. Oh my gosh! Best pie ever. The crust was warm and flaky and a touch sweet. The filling was so yummy, full of apples, strawberries, blueberries and rhubarb. Sweet and a bit tart and so delish! I highly recommend you get the whole pie because one piece is NOT enough!
By far the best coffee! The Pinon coffee is perfect at any time of the day!!
Best thing you can get that has everything you ever wanted! Service is great, and coffee is amazing! My favorite place in town!
This is my go to breakfast and the French toast is amazing!
One of the finest soups I've ever eaten. We have travelled to 48 states and this is one of the best cafes and best soups we have ever encountered.
My husband and I love this restaurant! We have gone every year we go to Ruidoso to celebrate our anniversary! We are always so impressed my the staff as well! They are always friendly and on top of things! Ready to serve you right away and make sure that you have everything you need and your food is the way you like! Definitely one of the best places to go to in Ruidoso! Love how clean and organized the restaurant is! Love the local photography as well!
First, let me start by saying Cornerstone has the most amazing management and staff in Ruidoso. The pastries are the best I have ever had. My favorite breakfast dish is the Lincoln County Eggs. It is out of this world delicious and filling. I'm almost embarrassed to say I eat breakfast at Cornerstone almost every morning. I have only lived in Ruidoso for a short time, but Cornerstone is my favorite Go To place to eat.
My trip to Ruidoso is not complete until I have at least one (or two) Chai Tea Latte from Cornerstone Bakery.(I live in Houston, but have a vacation home in Ruidoso). It has the right amount of spice and sweetness; and on a cold morning, or right after a brisk morning walk, it is the best! For a special treat, pair with one of their scrumptious muffins (my favs are the Sunrise or Cappucino Chunk).The muffins are big enough to share; we've sometimes enjoyed them as a mid-day dessert.
We have not eaten anything here that we haven't loved! From pie & macaroons to sandwiches & Mac n cheese. The extensive menu will have us coming back many more times to try all the goodies!!
This is probably the most well rounded, completely enjoy breakfast ever. Unique in its elements and traditional in its feel amd flavors. Amazing.
My full review is here -- https://americadowntown.com/best-restaurants-in-ruidoso/ -- but in short, this was among my top 10 breakfasts of all time. Not just because the food was spectacular -- it was -- but the atmosphere and totally hospitable service made the entire experience an excellent one.
Great experience . All items were excellent. Quick service. Loved the fresh orange juice.
We've been visiting Cornerstone since the old location down the street. It's been our favorite breakfast restaurant ever since. We've tried pretty much everything on the menu, but my go to is the Eggs Benedict, my wife usually opts for whatever waffle special is going on, and the kids enjoy the french toast. I don't think you can go wrong, the staff is friendly and eager to make your visit a pleasure. And the food you can't beat, all in all I recommend it 1000%. But keep in mind weekends are very busy so call and make a reservation.
This place has the best freshest foods. It is hard to choose which is my favorite. Please stop in here you will not be disappointed. Excellent customer service fantastic desserts.
There is no way Im leaving Ruidoso everytime without getting the Fruits of the Forest Pie at Cornerstone Bakery.Not just one but at least 6 boxes of them,1 to keep and the rest to share with family and friends.The taste is like heaven's gift of nature on your tongue with divine combination of fruits and perfect crust specially crafted for each customer. Dont forget the Pinon coffee!!!The BEST brew with your PERFECT pie.Thanks for this one of a kind pie and stay safe always..❤
Since Cornerstone Bakery is almost a daily stop for me, Everything on the menu is wonderful! I love to pick up a #1 breakfast burrito without the tortilla in the morning and then lunch is always a major decision because everything sounds so good. Today will be a BLT with avocado. I hope you come and enjoy Cornerstone Bakery and their super owners and employees as much as I do!
Loved the quality of turkey ham, grape tomatoes , spring lettuce, and delectable gluten free bread. Huge portion! Potato salad was made from scratch 🙌 iced tea was fresh and homemade . Tremendously better than all other sandwich establishments in Ruidosa 😀
Great food and service. I love the perfect Rube.
Best place to grab food in town, coffee was delicious and the breakfast was awesome. Very filling and different. Definitely recommend coming in.

Eggs and fruit with wheat toast! Delicious with great service!!!
I tried the Mescalero Burger and it was AMAZING !!!!. Everything I've tried is great but I have to say the Mescalero Burger was my favorite !!
This salad and every other dish our table got was FANTASTIC! We are Texans and this exceeding all expectations! Definitely a spot worth stopping at. Love love love. Fantastic waiting staff also!
The best dip I've ever had! The green chili soup was also amazing!
Cornerstone Bakery is Our favorite Brunch place. Every plate is WONDERFUL! The Pinon Coffee just nailed the spot for me..my Grandfather all brought pinons to us as children, I simply can not get enough of it. And the Italian Cream Cake is the BOMB! Much Love from your neighbors in Texas
TRULY AWESOME GLUTEN FREE DINING. BELGIAN WAFFLE SANDWICH CLOUDCROFT OMELETTE. SIERRA BLANCA FRENCH TOAST. WE DROVE DOWN FROM ALBUQUERQUE. EXTREMELY SATSFIED AND WE WILL LET ALL OF OUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY KNOW ABOUT THIS INCREDIBLE DINING EXPERIENCE. STAFF WAS VERY COURTEOUS. FOOD WAS AWESOME. WE WILL MAKE THIS A MONTHLY VISIT, THE FOOD AND SERVICE ARE JUST THAT GOOD.
The Cornerstone Bakery is a must stop while in Ruidoso. We ate there 2 days in a row, there were 3 of us. Margaret greeted us with enthusiasm and a sense of humor. She explained the new rules of how to order. The wait staff that we encountered, get an A++ for customer service. The food that we had, quiche, eggs benedict and omelettes, and of course the Best cinnamon roll. All of the food was delicious and presented well. When we visit Ruidoso again, we know where we will be stopping for a meal. Even the water was delicious!
Best eggs Benedict I've ever had. Cooked to perfection. Also, great kids menu Also, bakery items such as empanadas and homemade pies are my favorite.
The best and worth the trip every time! I could skip breakfast for one of these. Both are great, but one must choose. And I will be glad too.
Visited on Saturday morning June 20 at 8:30 am. Only a 5 minute wait. Slightly different ordering procedure because of COVID. You order and pay right when you enter. Menu is on the outside door (and inside wall) as you enter so take a look so you're ready when you get inside. Food was delivered quickly. Placitas Platter was excellent. I chose French toast, loaded potatoes, scrambled eggs, and sausage. Salsa was great. Orange juice was fresh. Service and friendliness was great from all employees I encountered. Bathrooms were clean. I highly recommend Cornerstone. It is a popular eatery so don't be surprised if there is a line to enter.
Food was excellent. Everything was correct with my order and food came out quickly, which was great! Some of the best breakfast I've ever had! The orange juice was excellent as well! Service was great!
We ordered the Hondo Chile Rellano, Belen biscuits and gravy, and Capitan BEST this time. Every dish we've tried has been amazingly delicious and each has unique flavors and named for New Mexico towns. We also can't ever leave without ordering some bakery items to go! Cappuccino chocolate muffin is our family's favorite. Excellent service always, and they always have something for the kids while waiting on food (decorate cookies, dough to play with). These are the reasons Cornerstone is our favorite local restaurant.
