I love visiting Chicago and eating breakfast at Corner Bakery. The paninis are wonderful and the Swiss oatmeal is my very favorite. Be sure to buy some of the raisin cinnamon crisps to take home with you!

Not sure what to order, I asked the cashier what he recommended. Chicken Pomodori was the recommendation and it was awesome! The pesto mayo on the panini was unbelievable! Definitely would go back!

We had colds and we appreciated the soups. The service seemed pretty slow but they were pleasant enough. The adjacent building is the Chicago Architecture Foundation - go into their lobby to see the scale model of Chicago whilke you are there!
