This is your typical Corner Bakery. Good tasty food, made fresh. It can sometimes take a while but at least you know it's made just for you with better ingredients than most fast food places.

Great coffee and bakery goods, sandwiches and soups are interesting to enjoy for a quick lunch or late breakfast. Good for meet up with business or social gatherings for 2 or 4 people at a table.

This isn't gourmet, but it is decent. The service staff is very nice and the food tasty. Great for a quick bite to eat. The pastas are good. Caesar salad is nice.

I love this place. the food is always so fresh and the sandwiches and salads are great. The D.C. chicken is delicious on a sandwich or as part of a trio salad. The people are very friendly and get to know you. The bakery items on display tastes as good as they look. I go here weekly and look for... More

Had a pleasant visit with friends. The outdoor seating was comfortable and clean. The service was prompt and friendly. This is a pretty average Corner Bakery. I ordered the Cuban Press Sandwich. It was tasty but a small portion. I definitely enjoyed being outside rather than inside. Much less noisy and relaxed. Our group had no trouble hearing each other's... More

I tried the Garden Scrambler and found it to be very good. I will be back for breakfast or lunch another time when I am in the area. I Wish there were a location closer, in Utah where I live.

I love the Corner Bakery. The food is always very good and the service always friendly and quick. Well...our visit was not up to standards. The ordering process was good but the wait for the food was over 30 minutes. Many people who ordered after us were served. We had to return to the counter twice inquiring where our food... More

I always enjoy breakfast here… In fact, the breakfast was so good I have come back for salads and soup many times… They have a special kind of bread that is cinnamony and crispy and covered with cut sugar! It is great! The people behind the counter and the wait staff are all very friendly and on the ball… The... More

Corner Bakery is one of my favorite places, lot's of choices for lunch, dinner and breakfast. I usually get the chicken pesto sandwich. They also have a chicken pesto pasta dish. The Anaheim scramble is especially yummy for breakfast. The deserts are good too. If you sign up on their website you can receive coupons on discount and occasionally something... More

I seem to gravitate towards this restaurant because I think they make the best chicken pesto sandwiches ever. I am a creature of habit and ever since I have been going to CB I only have the chicken pesto and chilli soup. Never once have I been disappointed with the pesto sandwich. I like the consistency of the food here.... More
