Cornerstone = Successful!

Cornerstone Restaurant & Bar on Urbanspoon

On October 13, 2010 was our Fall Wine Exchange at Cornerstone in Aspinwall, PA.

We can’t even begin to explain how happy we are with Cornerstone and how well they catered to The Pittsburgh Tastebuds.  The whole group loved the food and experience.

If you ever need to plan a party with Cornerstone make sure to contact Erin, but the whole staff is amazing and I know they will give you the attention and service needed for any occasion.

Cornerstone is officially one of our new favorites in the Pittsburgh area, Tastebud B and I…along with our friends can’t wait to go back again!  Make sure to check out our previous review of Cornerstone from a first visit.

Valliant’s Diner

With the Steelers on a bye week, there was no need for one of our “football game lunches” so we decided that we would go out for a late breakfast in the North Hills. Not being a native to Pittsburgh, I’m not sure I would have ever known that Valliant’s Diner existed. It is a cute little diner on Babcock Blvd with a classic diner charm. It isn’t very big inside, but it sure has a lot of character.

In traditional breakfast fashion, we each ordered an omelette – TasteBud A got the tomato and cheese, I got the everything omelette. We also got a side order of homefries.

The coffee was a little lackluster, but I prefer my coffee strong. The homefries were good as were both of our omelettes. At one point during the meal I noted that I wish there was some meat in my omelette, considering they call it “everything”. One complaint I had was the use of American cheese in the omelette and the amount of it. It was a little runny in spots. It wouldn’t have been my first option for cheese, but it did the trick. In most instances, I would pay extra if I could have an alternate option.

After ordering, Tastebud A noticed a specials menu that the waitress never mentioned. The Montana Omelette. I wish I would have noticed it beforehand.

Maybe it was the atmosphere, the inexpensive price or the company, but I left satisfied ready to do some shopping. Oh, and it’s cash only, so bring some Washingtons!
