Although there are a lot of bars and restaurants clustered in the Osborne area, I always felt a bit of a yearning for a nice, mellow drinking spot with solid food. Cornerstone meets those needs. Since it opened a few months ago, it's been my go-to meeting spot for a drink, some light appetizers or a full meal.
Cornerstone has a solid cocktail menu (their twist on an old fashioned, infused with lavender, is my personal favourite) and a variety of reasonably priced beers. The food is perfect. Not overly fancy, but flavourful and well-prepared with quality ingredients.
The interior is light and minimalist. My favourite spot is up at the bar, looking out at the entertainment Osborne has to offer.
So if you're in the area, it's worth checking out. And if you see me there, feel free to come on over and buy me a drink, okay?
