Ended up going here 2 days in a row for its ease, convenience and great prices. Orders are placed at the counter then given a number and they are brought to your table. No service charge/tip is expected. Food is really good, fresh and tasted good. They have a selection of hot and cold dishes.

A popular and well-known chain in the Chicago area. Great for soups, sandwiches, and baked goods (I recommend the monster cookie, sweet bread crisps, or mini bundt cake -- but there is lots of variety). The coffee is great and prices are reasonable considering city prices. After food is ordered, it is delivered to your table (if eating in). If... More

I stopped by the Corner Bakery for coffee one morning on my way to a conference nearby, and ended up ordering breakfast. I had the pancakes and eggs, with bacon. 4 big pancakes, several pieces of bacon, and plenty of eggs. Awesome, delicious, and fast breakfast. The coffee was great too. Best part was that it was under $10.

Thank Ben M

Staying in Downtown / The Loop

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a good starting point to sample the city's energy and flavor. This central business district boasts Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of Millennium Park and Cloud Gate (“The Bean”), one of the most iconic landmarks in the city. A stunning skyline coupled with cultural attractions like the Art Institute of Chicago present a Downtown where work and play peacefully coexist.
