Business Profile: The Corner serves up wholesome home-style meals in Golden

The Corner Restaurant has been serving up home cooked meals for three months now.

Owners Stephanie Blanchette and Nassim Meddane opened The Corner, rightly named, at the corner of 9th Street S. and 10th Avenue N., in the purple building that previously held its namesake as Nico’s Kitchen.

After living in the community for around three years, and working in the food and beverage industry, Blanchette and Meddane saw an opportunity, and jumped on it.

“We opened this place to be a part of Golden,” Blanchette said. “It’s a little community that we really chose. It’s a great town.”

The Corner is changing up its menu this week, after months of speaking with locals and getting input to find out what people really wanted to see. Originally, The Corner opened up as a breakfast place, but changed its hours to reflect the busier times of day. Now, they offer a lunch and dinner menu, and are open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays, and 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Everything the restaurant offers is made from scratch. Blanchette said one customer mentioned that she really enjoyed the menu because she knew everything was prepared in house, and was happy to feed her children the wholesome food offered.

“Everything is from scratch, everything is home made,” Blanchette said. “We want to have comfort food.”

On top of great food, and a cozy atmosphere, The Corner serves beer and desserts to complement the meals they offer.

Right before taking the plunge to open the business, Blanchette and Meddane had a trip planned to Mexico, but decided to forgo their vacation and open up shop. Over the course of three months, the restaurant has evolved to meet the needs of the community, and Blanchette hopes to expand it to include a patio in the spring and summer. Right now, the restaurant is run by a small staff, and Blanchette says they may try hiring some more people during the busier summer months.

As a server for 15 years, Blanchette runs the front end of the business, and her husband, Meddane, has been a chef for 15 years, so it was a natural fit for him to run back of house operations. Right now, he continues to work at Eagle’s Eye Restaurant as an executive chef for his third winter.

Check out everything that The Corner has to offer. Located at 901 10th Avenue S., Blanchette and her friendly staff are waiting to satiate your appetite. Check out their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/TheCornerRestaurantAndGiftShop for more information, or call 250-290-0114 to find out more.
