I left downtown and heading for the "El" stop. As I passed the Corner Bakery Cafe, I decided to pick up a sandwich. I ordered the cheddar & roast beef sandwich. It was fresh and tasty and definitely hit the spot. The staff was efficient.

My meal was unbelievably delicious. I loved that this restaurant had multiple locations. When I mentioned that it was my first time in the city, the lady behind the counter offered me a free pastry! Such great service.

I've eaten here several times and keep coming back specifically for paninis. They have a few options that are tasty and ordering and getting your food is usually pretty fast. The paninis are assembled well and most of the time cooked evenly. Occasionally you'll get...More
