Incredible lattes and french toast. It's half fast food/half restaurant and a million times better fare than Panera or Starbucks.

It was an excellent little cozy place with excellent food at the center of Chicago. I would recommend anyone to go.

Bakery items are generic. They probably make nothing themselves. Love the locations and the decor. They over pack the tables and battled the 3 degree weather unsuccessfully. This has all the setup to be a great coffee shop but the execution leaves room for improvement.

We used to have this restaurant in Glendale, AZ but they left!! I always eat here when I visit Chicago. They have a large breakfast selection and then offer soups, sandwiches, pasta for lunch and dinner. And they're located all over Chicago!

I got the California breakfast sandwich which has cheese, eggs, bacon, tomato and avocado on sour dough. It was really good! Really good prices too. I couldn't get the wifi to work there though.

Corner Bakery is a great place for a quick breakfast or lunch - grab a coffee and pastry or sit down for a meal - the food is very good. Friendly atmosphere for conversation or to just rest and recharge!

Neighbourhood Profile
South Loop
This downtown neighborhood offers a variety of activities ranging from cultural to sporting. If you happen to visit during football season, you may bump into a boisterous few fans on their way to a Bears game on the southernmost tip of South Loop. On the flip side, Museum Campus offers cultural and educational experiences in its planetarium, museum and aquarium, all situated along the lakefront. Grant Park is one of Chicago’s premier locations for green space and recreation with views of Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline. Take a stroll down memory lane in the historic Prairie District where you can enjoy views of old historic homes. Restaurants, theaters, and clubs are spread throughout the neighborhood along with a collection of burger joints along Michigan Avenue just across from the park.
