The “open” sign lights up a bit earlier these days at The Corner on the square in Greenfield. 

With the addition of a breakfast menu, owners Tom and Tammy Walk are opening at 7 a.m. Of course, if the light is on, customers are welcome to stop in even earlier, said Tom.

While the biscuits and gravy dish, featuring fresh sausage from Fareway, is currently The Corner’s best breakfast seller, the Walks would also like The Corner to be known for its Belgian waffles, which feature a selection of toppings.

Of course, breakfast would not be breakfast without the standard biscuit sandwiches, coffee cake, eggs, hash browns, sausage, bacon and toast. Then there is also the omelet in a mug.

Breakfast is served from 7-10:30 a.m.

Tom said he had heard of a need for a breakfast place ever since the dinner closed, and,  with Tammy now available full time at The Corner, they decided it was time to make the move.

“She’s a great cook,” Tom said of Tammy.

“I’ve always enjoyed cooking for family and I want people to feel like family,” said Tammy of their customers.

Customers will also note being served on dishes. “We wanted to get away from paper products,” said Tom.

Besides adding griddles and waffle irons, the Walks have purchased a commercial panini press so they can make more paninis more quickly.

A cooler has also been placed in front of the counter to make soda products more visible. Pepsi products, Diet Coke, and Sioux City root beer and cream sodas are available. Of course, coffees, teas, smoothies and other offerings continue to be served up as ordered.

Another big change is coming to The Corner in the spring. A recently purchased ice cream station will be the centerpiece of an old fashioned ice cream and soda shop area. 

Tom said they are collecting pieces to give the addition an authentic old-time feel.

Hard ice cream, banana splits, sundaes and phosphate drinks will be offered.

“We got a lot of comments that we should do ice cream,” said Tom. “We listen to the people around us.”
