Kensington Cornerstone Bar at Night

Dear Family & Friends,

After 5 amazing years in Kensington Market it is with mixed emotions that we are announcing that Monday, September 7, 2015 will be The Kensington Cornerstone Restaurant’s last service.

We would like to thank all of you who have patronized The Cornerstone.  From our amazing regulars, many of whom have become close friends, to our customers who may have joined us only once, it has sincerely been a pleasure.

We would also like to thank our team, past and present.  Without the energy and professional enthusiasm of everyone who has worked here over the years this great journey would not be possible.  We have been very fortunate to have had such loyal, caring, and hard working teams.

A big thank you to our great group of suppliers (notably in Kensington Market: Sanci’s Produce, Sanagan’s Meat Locker, St. Andrew Poultry, Moonbean Coffee, Carlos’ House of Spice, Herman’s Hardware, Global Cheese, Tap Phong, & Essence of Life.)  Many have truly become partners, offering advice, encouragement, and at times extreme patience!  We would like to thank you all.

The Kensington Cornerstone has been a labour of love for five and a half years. Blood, sweat, and tears have helped it grow and evolve into something wonderful.  I would not change this experience for the world.
