What’s better than a hot cup of Mattie’s Mountain Mud and a bagel first thing in the morning?
It’s hard to find something to top that combo! Corn & Flour on North Court Street can get you the breakfast fix you’ve been craving since the closing of the Bakery on Court Street. The shop officially opened for business on Jan. 22, and they have been busy ever since.
Those walking by the storefront may have noticed the ongoing construction spanning the past several months, as the inside got a fresh facelift. With a roomier interior and changes in decor, Corn & Flour is a comfortable, convenient place to pop in and grab a bite to eat.
The menu is full of variety, offering everything from daily specials (including an ever-changing list of soups and unique entrees) to breakfast staples such as salt bagels, breads, cinnamon rolls, and Danishes. Some past daily specials include huevos wraps, homemade biscuits with turkey gravy, vegetarian quiche, and Spanikopita with Tzatziki sauce. Their multitude of bagel types can be eaten plain, or in the form of breakfast sandwiches with ham, bacon, eggs, cheese, avocado, and more, so there’s something for everyone.
Harrison Frost and his wife, Sara Lakiotes, both work at the shop. When asked where their ideas for their diverse menu comes from, he said they simply get inspired by just about anything, hence for the wide range of dishes they make. Day-to-day, customers can find distinct options for any palate.
Frost says that business has been booming since the opening. “We have been about three times as busy as we thought we would be,” he said. “Some of our top sellers are the cheese Danishes and cinnamon rolls. Even if we made 1,000 rolls I think we would still sell out. We feel so welcomed by the community, and are so glad that everyone is supporting us.”
Corn & Flour is open Monday through Friday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and is located at 818 North Court Street.
