About The Corner

After opening in  April of 2015, The Corner outfitted itself to be a mix of “urban eclectic sensibilities,” all while reflecting Montclair’s suburban charm, according to the website. Owner Jeff Munoz is a long-time Montclair resident, he named the cafe The Corner as the building sits on the corner of Grove Street and Walnut Street.

“We took over this ‘corner’ space with a vision of a part cafe and part restaurant, combining a downtown feel with a casual nature of a neighborhood eatery,” according to signage in the cafe.

Designed by interior designer Nicole Roantree, The Corner combines the industrial feel of the city with the comfort of the suburbs. A neon sign reading “good vibes only” and colorful art prints decorate the walls.

The open concept kitchen and tables with rustic wood table tops and industrial table legs round out the look of the cafe. The large front windows and glass doors of the cafe allow for sunlight to naturally light the interior and make for the perfect spot for watching the regular hustle and bustle of Montclair to pass you by.
