There is an extensive breakfast/lunch menu with sandwiches, croissants, etc., however the dinner menu is limited to mostly pasta dishes. The establishment was quiet and you could hold a conversation there without shouting. Apparently popular with the local business people as there were quite a few coming in to get food and going out.

The Corner Bakery was ok, not bad or good. Service was slow. My breakfast croissant sandwich was soggy and fruit salad had no berries.

He YELLED at her saying it was time she figured out how to do... More

I waited really long and seemed to be passed over for my order, I had to bring it to the person at the counters attention 3 times before receiving my order.

We were in Irvine and found this Corner Bakery near Von's on Harvard. Nice size restaurant with both inside and outside seating. I tried the cavatini with marinara this time around and thought it was excellent. Good service all the way around. Try the maple bar, it is delicious.

I enjoyed the chicken salad sandwich. the homemade dark bread was delicious with the chicken salad. They offer a wide range of hot and cold sandwiches, salads, soups and pasta. Great for a quick meal

Went for lunch because close to work. It gets pretty busy there. The food is ok and pretty standard but the cashiers can be a little more pleasant. I understand how busy it gets, but I think the service can be a little better. They seemed annoyed.

This is a fun restaurant. I remembered this name from a visit to Denver and decided to stop in while in Irvine. The food was good. The atmosphere was pleasant and the servers were very helpful. I especially enjoyed the tomato basil soup. Very good.

Thank skays56
