We stopped at Corner Bakery for an early lunch. We had a BOGO offer, so we ordered a roast beef & cheddar sandwich, as well as an uptown turkey sandwich. The sandwiches were brought out quickly and tasted pretty good. I liked the bacon (which was done right) on the turkey sandwich. The only question that I have is why... More

I stopped at this Corner Bakery Cafe for breakfast and I arrived at 7:26 a.m. I ordered oatmeal, but I was told that it was not yet ready, even though the store opened at 7:00 a.m. Since I did want the oatmeal, I grabbed a table and waited. The oatmeal arrived at my table at 7:46 a.m. and it was... More

With plenty of parking, this Corner Bakery Cafe is easy to get to, and get in and out of easily. We went after a movie and it was not very busy. We ordered a cheddar broccoli soup and a chili bread bowl. Both were brought out to the table quickly. Service at the counter was good. Reasonable prices, tasty soup.

I ordered breakfast and lunch at Corner Bakery. Both were good. I would recommend it as a breakfast and lunch option in Skokie. I like the fact that it had healthy options and you saw the calorie count of menu items.

It is generally hard to mess up food at Corner Bakery and today the food was consistently good. The best improvement was the service. Not only was the manager walking around the tables and checking with the guests, but they came around with samples of the cinnamon crumb coffee cake. Keep up the good work.

I went to Corner Bakery for breakfast and ordered the crunchy oat banana oatmeal. There was NO ONE in line, and about 6 people standing around behind the counter. It took them 20 minutes to come out and tell me that I couldn't get what I wanted since they had no bananas. They did offer to put strawberries and blueberries... More

Generally, my favorite local self-service breakfast option. But again, we got there at 10:45 am and we're told that they had no oatmeal. I order oatmeal at nearly every visit. Big disappointment.

I was very disappointed with the counter service today. I went for breakfast, only to be told that they were out of oatmeal. When I asked, if there were any soups available, the order taker was clueless. He must have been paid on commission, as I ended up picking a turkey gobbler, until I heard someone on the other end...

We were looking for a place to eat near our hotel. Saw this and hoped it had food, not just doughnuts. Well, it had great food and I don't think there was any doughnuts. Turns out this restaurant is very much like the Panera restaurant in other states. I had a breakfast sandwich - it was yummy.

Corner Bakery is a place where you can get your basic foods fast, and without any hassle of dealing with a waitress. You order at the counter and the food is brought to you in a very timely manner. The staff is always friendly and the restaurant is clean. We were invited to try their new power flat breakfast sandwiches,... More
