Summerville has long been a town where community gathers. It’s close-knit and cozy. It’s friendly and family focused. It’s Friday night football and Sunday socials. It’s the kind of place where people enjoy spending time together and getting to know their neighbors.
And now Summerville has a new gathering place perfect for fostering those connections: Corner House Café, located in the new community of Summers Corner. Think of this café as an extension of your own kitchen. You know, the one room where everyone pulls up a chair to talk over the day’s events, catch up on news or laugh over favorite stories – complete with food and drink in hand.
Also the information center for Summers Corner, the Corner House Café is open to residents and the general public. It’s the place for anyone who wants to enjoy fresh, local fare from a changing menu that reflects what’s in season and is designed to accentuate the incomparable flavor of the Lowcountry.
The menu was created by the culinary minds behind the popular Charleston restaurateur Butcher & Bee. Mouth-watering menu items include tomato toast made with heirloom tomatoes; a ham and brie sandwich with pepper jelly; chilled tomato soup; and a roast beef sandwich with onion jam and roasted red pepper aioli. Specialty coffees are brewed using Counter Culture coffee.
Stop in to sample a selection of craft beers by Freehouse Brewery and 12 organic wines. Or indulge your sweet tooth with a Popsicle from King of Pops or a freshly made scone.
With latte or craft beer in hand, gather your friends and enjoy the natural surroundings, the friendly faces and that sense of community that makes Summerville the special town it is.
Corner House Café is open Monday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and 1-6 p.m. Sunday. It is located off Highway 61 and Summers Drive in Summerville. While you’re at Corner House Café, stay awhile at Summers Corner and tour the six model homes.
