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.

Not all that different from a Panera type location, but somehow the menu here was a bit more unique than a box type breakfast store. The outside dining was pleasant and the Anaheim Scrambler made to order with egg whites was nice.

We needed a quick bite before the architectural boat cruise so we stopped here. It was definitely quick. Not a lot of gluten free options but I did have a good salad. It was a bit pricey for what I actually got. Upscale fast food basically.

The bacon wasn't whole slices, couple pieces of potatoes is what they call hash browns with mostly onions, must have scraped the bottom of pan, eggs were horrible!!! I mostly go to downtown one where food is good! Take a... More

Desperate for a morning latte, it was either Starbucks or this place. The line up at Starbucks was crazy, so we chose the Bakery. It was a good choice. They made great breakfast sandwiches. We had the healthy egg sandwiches on multigrain, Adding tomatoes was not a problem. The smoothies were also delicious. Returned the next day to find the... More

Restaurant environment in the Windy is competitive beyond the Big Apple’s imagination. I was at that end of State feeling disappointed by Barnes and Noble across the street. Needed breakfast. This was not the best breakfast I had in Chicago, but it was just fine: neat, clean, economical, polite service, quick, and adequate selection for me. A beautiful day; sat... More

I love stopping by Corner Bakery to have breakfast, brunch or a mid-afternoon snack. I love their egg and tomato croissant and their chicken alfredo pasta, two delicious options for a brunch. Also, there are lots of Corner Bakery cafes in Chicago, just keep walking and you'll find one close to you.

This was just across the street from where we stayed. Breakfast and lunch were both good. Everyone was friendly and service fast.
