Fishing nets, hooks and rods adorn the walls of the Corner Cafe in Denver.
The nautical feel of the new restaurant on N.C. 16 is mirrored in its menu, which features specialty seafood selections.
Two sisters, Debbie Bernardi and Robin Bond, run the cafe which has been open since November.
The sisters are originally from New York. Bernardi moved to Statesville ten years ago and Bond eventually followed in her foot steps.
“The best part is being together again,” Bernardi said.
The co-owners specialize in Haddock, a northern dish which is a popular menu item.
The fish is like flounder only thicker and very moist, Bond said.
Hand pressed cheeseburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, burgers, rib eye steaks, shrimp boats and beer battered mushrooms are also featured.
And the sisters say that their dessert options are always tempting.
“We try to get in a different variety to pick and choose from,” Bernardi said.
Ice cream will soon be available and Bernardi said she is also hoping to add a Saturday night special.
Bernardi and Bond want to reward customers who choose the Corner Cafe.
Tossing a business card in a bowl can net patrons a free lunch.
There is also a board near the door where customers can tack up their own business cards and get free advertising.
Corner Cafe is located at Westport Village Shoppes, 2790 North N.C. 16.
The hours are Monday through Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. On Friday it is open an extra hour, until 8 p.m.
A drive-up window is also provided.
