Inspired by great fresh ingredients, our small neighborhood bakery on a corner in downtown Chicago began creating artisan breads and freshly baked sweets. And upon a little success, neighbors began to ask us for sandwiches made with that fabulous bread, followed by homemade soups and salads, and even made-to-order scramblers. Our guests’ requests continued to inspire us as our bakery’s menu and business grew.
Today, we continue to fulfill the needs and desires of our neighbors with a menu of ingredient-inspired, prepared-to-order food. When you visit our cafe, you’ll see real kitchens in place of assembly lines. You’ll hear the chopping of over 40 types of fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables, and the sizzle of our real panini grill. You’ll see the stove’s open flame and feel the warmth from our ovens working all day long. They’re the traditions we established years ago that we still passionately follow today.
On Corner Bakery’s opening day in 1991, the menu featured freshly baked breads, great coffee and espresso. As our guests requested more items, and as we delivered, our menu evolved to include the extraordinary variety of fresh, wholesome, irresistible foods you know today. The brand continued to grow as we incorporated exciting flavors from different parts of the country, and we became Corner Bakery Cafe.
At Corner Bakery Cafe, we are passionate about all we do – especially the food we create and serve to our guests. We know that everyone has their own nutritional wants and needs, so we offer more than 100 Corner Combos under 600 calories, and with all dishes prepared to order, special requests are welcomed. We create food to fit every lifestyle, using only the freshest ingredients and breads fresh from the oven.
