Kelli Elliot, the most recent operator of Cornerstone Cafe & Catering, announced that August will be her last month at the cafe.
The cafe is at 3801 Heathrow Drive in the clubhouse of the Heather Hills Golf Course, off Ebert Road.
“Thank you to everyone that has supported me and this endeavor,” Elliot wrote in an announcement on Facebook. “It’s been an amazing adventure, and I appreciate all of you. Many of you have become friends and some like family. Unfortunately, just not enough business and rising cost of food and supplies are just too much.”
Elliot, a former manager in the cosmetics business, had taken over the cafe less than a year ago, in September 2021. She had seemed to accumulate a lot of fans in that short time but, apparently, was hampered by the cafe’s out-of-the-way location.
Elliot said that hours for the next month will be as follows: 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays, noon to 2 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, and noon to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The cafe also will be closed for private events Aug. 3 and 14 and will be open only from 3 to 8 p.m. Aug. 10.
