Whether guests are on the go, wanting a comfortable place to relax, or seeking a flavorful catering experience Corner Bakery prides itself on being there to brighten any day. More than a bakery and more than a cafe, Corner Bakery is admired by customers nationwide for their deliciously fresh kitchen-crafted breakfast, lunch and dinner.
“I recently visited the cafe upon my stay at the Palmer House. This was my first time in Chicago and I had one morning to venture out to breakfast on my own. I chose this because it was close and looked cute. The service was unbelievably fast. I ordered the oatmeal with fresh fruit, raisins, and brown sugar, and a brewed coffee. I loved the bar seating by the window. I could do my morning reading in peace while watching commuters go by. It was an awesome city experience,” noted a TripAdvisor reviewer.
