The Corner Bakery is walking distance from the Palmer House Hilton and offers a great selection of breakfast dishes. The food was tasty, if not exceptional and their coffee was decent. Compared to the cost of a hotel breakfast this was a great value, if not exactly inexpensive. We recommend it as a great choice for breakfast or brunch. If... More

We walked toThe Corner Bakery Cafe. It was a local cafe. We enjoyed sitting by the window to watch the walkers. There were many choices - sandwiches, bagels, oatmeal, pastries, muffins, etc. it was a great spot for a simple breakfast.

Stopped by here on the way to the Chicago History Museum for breakfast. Had the farmers scramble. Everything was as expected although the portion was much small than you would get at a Denny's or IHOP. Prices were reasonable. Will eat here again if in area.

The paninis were delicious overall the chicken pomodori!!!! It has the perfect combination of sun dried tomatoes, spinach, basil and sauce to satisfy even the most picky of appetites. Beautiful location, clean establishment and friendly service are some of the reasons this place needs to be visited.

Hard to find some healthy and affordable breakfast and lunch items in the city - this is your place! For breakfast the avocado & spinach power panini with freshly scrambled eggs is great. Or my husbands favorite is the Anaheim Panini with eggs, bacon, tomatoes, avocado & cheddar cheese on grilled sourdough. Fresh brewed and unlimited coffee available all day... More

On a recent visit to Chicago we had breakfast at our Hotel on the first morning ( Congress Plaza Hotel) and discovered they can not cook eggs properly and the rest of the offering was terrible, which inspired us to look further afield. We discovered Corner Bakery Cafe, next to the Architecture Foundation Centre, with fresh fruit and yogurt, bacon... More

What more is there to say. They have a wide selection of breakfast choices that are reasonably priced, served quickly, and by courteous employees. You can have a $25 coffee delivered to you at the Public Hotel or walk two blocks down State and provide breakfast for three with coffee for the same. If you are not a millionaire but... More

Our local Corner Bakery is enjoyable for a casual breakfast. The food is always consistent and service is very courteous and efficient. Enjoy that each Corner Bakery has pictures of the local neighborhood.
