Corner Bakery, Chicago: 3 reviews and 6 photos

  au coin de la rue
by yooperprof

"The Corner Bakery" is a chain that started in Chicago but which has started to go national. (I had brunch at one in Bucktown, Atlanta, a few years ago.) The emphasis is on fresh and inexpensive baked goods: breads, pastries, scones, etc. They do soups and quiches too. It's an "order at the counter" place: no table service. There are Chicago locations scattered through the Loop and close to North Michigan Ave., and they are all deservedly quite popular both with tourists and locals.

Favorite Dish: I like to pop in for coffee and a croissant.

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: This "Corner Bakery" is on Wabash not far from the Art Institute. Now that I think about it, I do believe that they are all located on streetcorners.
Price: less than US$10
Rating: 4
Theme: Bakery

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
