  • The Corner Grill is out of business now. The same location is occupied by Ming Garden Chinese restaurant. A new restaurant The Bailey Cafe is also available.

  • Saw a segment on Tarheel Travler about a restaurant with a large teapot collection. Did not catch the name of the restaurant or the address. Pretty sure it was in Bailey.. Any Help????

  • The Bailey Cafe located off Main Street in the Town of Bailey near the Florist Shop. It is about a block from Piggly Wiggly grocery store and Finch Auto Shop very near the railroad track. At the first traffic light the underpass takes you under the railroad tracks and the next traffic light (Finch Auto is on one corner and Piggly Wiggly is across the street) make a left. After you pass the parking lot you will see a long white building complex. The Bailey Cafe is in the middle.
