I had beef stroganoff, which had excellent flavor. It was very tender and at $10.95, a fair price. My friend loved the chicken parm, also $10.95. Reasonably priced, great friendly service.

The Corner room at the intersection of College Avenue and Allen Street offers one of the best venues for experiencing Downtown State College. Grab a booth next to one of the large picture windows and enjoy your favorite meal while watching students and locals make their way to class, work, home and fun! The Corner Room offers delicious, traditional made-from-scratch menu selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. NEW to the menu is authentic oven-baked Italian pizza. Feel free to pair your pizza with an ice cold soda or juice from the Coca-Cola FREESTYLE machine. You can choose from over 100 different flavor combinations. Since 1926 Town & Gown folks alike have been meeting at "The Corner" enjoying great food and good times ... Welcome and we appreciate your business!
