Had lunch after an architectural highlights tour. Panini was served quickly and it was better than most. Sat outside and enjoyed watching the people walking by.

We have eaten here many times during our prior visits to Chicago. We have been here several times this trip when we've wanted something quick and easy. The food is always good and so is the service.

Good food, plenty of choices, and coffee on tap. We ate from the "scrambler" menu and the dishes we had were pretty healthy and really good. And it was not at all expensive. UBright helpful staff as well.

We stopped in mid-morning at the Corner Bakery on State Street for a quick breakfast before going shopping on Michigan Avenue. The bakery was only half-packed. We ordered our food at the counter and then were seated while the food and coffee drinks were prepared. Then, someone brings everything out to your table. My wife had the Muesli and loved... More

Most definitely the place to go if you are a cookie-lover like myself! The only thing that will hold you back is the choice that they have available!! You can easily be swayed by their other ‘goodies’ they have on sale but all I can say is don’t be tempted – stick to your guns and go for the tried... More

This was a great stop for a quick breakfast. We had the french toast which was delicious and much cheaper than the food in our hotel.

They food was pretty good. A little pricey. Don't sit outside unless you want to be literally attacked by pigeons.

Long weekend in Chicago in early August...first time in town, spotted a number of these Corner Bakery restaurants. All of them busy. Great All American Scramble, & I was introduces to "Swiss Oatmeal" cold! Love it. Could use a larger variety of fruit juices. Hectic in the morning. We didn't do lunches. Will have to save that for another time.... More

I wish we had one in Baltimore. There was one literally on every corner in Chicago. From breakfast food to their sandwiches at lunchtime, I have never had a bad meal there yet. A great value. Clean and very friendly staff.
