When I think of corner markets, I think of tiny crammed shops that carry mostly liquor. Ginger Corner Market is the type of corner market that other corner markets should aspire to. It looks fresh and new, yet has charming retro appeal. Pastries are made in house.
- Food: 4/5 – Classic sandwiches made to order on rustic, better than average bread, soup, big salads, housemade quiche, and housemade pastries (cookies, muffins, tarts, scones, pop tarts, cake). They also have snacks and an ice cream chest. The toasted pastrami sandwich with horseradish slaw was quite good. Check the menu board for daily specials.
- Coffee: 3/5 – Coffee and espresso drinks offered. I haven’t tried it yet. The housemade lemonade didn’t have enough lemon. They also have an iced tea of the day. Complimentary water is available.
- Wi-fi: 5/5 – Password required, good speed, no time limit
- Ambiance: 4/5 – Cute…a few tables with gingham tablecloths
- Noise: 4/5 – Classic rock music isn’t loud, patrons are quiet
- Plugs: 4/5 – Good number of outlets
- Parking: 3/5 – 2 hour free parking is easy to find
- Comfort: 3/5 – Small tables, counter seating, nothing is padded but it’s not uncomfortable
- Bathroom: 0/5 – Didn’t see any
- Art: 4/5 – Cute stuff for sale
Tips: The shop sells cute toys, stuff for the kitchen, candy and Japanese stickers. Outdoor seating available. The market is across the street from a park, so you can always take your sandwich there. There aren’t many tables inside so finding an open one could be an issue. I could see stopping here just for the ice cream chest; they carry treats from Mother Moo’s and Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream.
