Cornerstone

One of the newest restaurants in Ogunquit, Maine is called Cornerstone.

Cornerstone is a pizza and sandwich restaurant for “grownups” (as if most of us ever really grow up).

It has all open-air seating perfect for beautiful summer days…which it definitely was.

cornerstone -acaffeinatedbrunette.comI was famished from walking down Marginal Way that morning and running around the beach so I started with one of their hearth baked pretzels. It came out hot and steamy. I broke it in half, dipped it in some mustard and popped that bad boy in my mouth faster than you could say humdinger (I was going for the cheesiest word I could find).

I plumped for their homemade infused Sangria which was absolutely refreshing and sweet. Perfect after a long day at the beach.

And for the main meal…

I ordered their Tripler with capicolla, Manchego cheese, herb-roasted tomatoes, arugula and roasted red-pepper aioli. (Mine was the best…just saying)

I’m not usually a sandwich person but these sandwiches were so flavorful. Everything was paired perfectly together. So…we went back the next night to try the dinner.

It was that good.

I kept seeing pizzas coming out during lunch and wanted to try them. They looked so tasty!

Before we left Cornerstone (the first time we went) a man told me I HAD to try the Gazpacho. I’m not a huge Gazpacho fan but this was absolute heaven. That man was right. The tomatoes were roasted before-hand and there were tons of fresh herbs mixed in. Your taste buds will give a holler when you try it. cornerstone -acaffeinatedbrunette.com

After watching many pizzas go out before my eyes I knew what I was ordering…cornerstone -acaffeinatedbrunette.comCitrus Summer Shrimp Pizza with herb-infused oils, Maine shrimp, aged-gouda, lime and scallions.

Chicken Fig Pizza with pulled chicken, fig chutney, mascarpone cheese, fire-roasted tomato sauce and fig-balsalmic glaze. (I also heard from some inside sources the bacon and eggs pizza is a winner)

Both pizzas were exceptional. If you’re in the neighborhood of Oguqnuit, Cornerstone is worth a visit. Find them online here. After another satisfying dinner we strolled around and I quickly found myself back at our cozy B & B hitting my head to the pillow. Home sweet home (for the weekend at least).
