Cornerstone Mansion Restaurant in Lowell, Indiana

Walking into that 1870’s Italianate-mansion was something else! Comfortable and nice without being fussy.

Each room has a different style of decor. We were seated in what I’m guessing is nicknamed the “Cherub” or “Angel” room. Light blue with cherubs here and there, white tables and chairs, and plenty of antiques, we sat next to a great window.

The  Cornerstone Mansion Restaurant has tea! Not the usual suspects like black tea or green tea, either. The offerings  that day were Blueberry Tea (me) or Kiwi Strawberry Tea (hubs). They were so good. I had a couple refills  and am really wishing I had purchased some to take home.

We ordered: Garlic Artichoke Dip, French Onion Soup (husband), Turkey Club (husband), and the Pork Schnitzel (me). All of our choices were recommendations from our server.

First, the Garlic Artichoke Dip. Can you say “garlicky goodness?” Served with what The Cornerstone Mansion Restaurant calls “bread chips” this stuff was so good I admit I made more than a few “nummy” sounds. My husband wisely let me have the last one (maybe it was the growling that convinced him).

My husband’s French Onion Soup was cheesy, full of onions, and smelled amazing. Forget the rack or Chinese water torture–have someone sit next to you with a bowl full of the Cornerstone Mansion’s French Onion Soup!

As we were eating, one of the owners of the place (Kay) walked around and said a few words to everyone, including a few who were obviously local regulars. I love that!

As nice as this place was it still had the small Indiana town touch which  is so important. Everything  is homemade and, yes, you can absolutely tell!

My husband decided he was too full for dessert so I ordered the Lemon Silk Pie. Our server thoughtfully had it sliced into twos. Yes, I did glare at him as he ate every bite. Let’s just say that Cornerstone Mansion’s Lemon Silk Pie is one of the best pies I have ever had.

From our tea to our meal and dessert, Cornerstone Mansion in Lowell, Indiana dished up a beautiful and delicious meal!
