I was recently invited by Corner Bakery to try out their Panini Sandwiches for my review. I have been to Corner Bakery several times and each time is better than the next! I had never tried their Panini Sandwiches before and I was so pleased!
I went to the Corner Bakery at Fashion Place Mall and was able to meet with the manager Robb Lapp. Robb was incredibly knowledgeable about all things Corner Bakery and he was such a joy to work with!
Corner Bakery has a really great menu starting with Breakfast and then of course their yummy sandwiches, pasta, soup, salads,desserts and more. My family decided to try out the Panini Sandwiches and they were incredible!
My husband decided to try the Chicken Pomodori on Sourdough, which is one of their most popular and yummiest sandwiches! “All-natural roasted chicken, fresh basil and spinach, oven-roasted tomatoes and provolone cheese with pesto mayo.” (Corner Bakery) My husband said that he liked that it was a true Panini. It wasn’t toasted so much it was hard but it had a really great balance and really good flavor.
I decided to go with the Club Panini Sandwich on Sourdough. What I loved about this sandwich is that the bread was grilled and had the perfect amount of ingredients on the inside. “Hickory smoked turkey breast, applewood smoked bacon, white cheddar cheese and plum tomatoes with a touch of mayo.” (Corner Bakery Website)
Corner Bakery also offers a vegetarian Panini called the California Grille on Harvest Bread: “A vegetarian mixture of grilled zucchini, marinated artichoke hearts, roasted tomatoes and pesto with fresh spinach and provolone cheese.” (Corner Bakery Website)
My girls loved their kids meals they chose. Leah really wanted the grilled cheese sandwich with strawberries and carrots and Charlotte went with the traditional Ham sandwich, Chips and their yummy (to die for good) Monster Cookie which has chocolate chips and m&m’s!
What I love about Corner Bakery is that they really have something for everyone and it is super kid friendly. In fact their kid’s menu includes kids favorites like PB& J and Mac & Cheese! Their desserts are also too die for! Robb had read my profile on this blog and new that I really liked Sweet & Salty things so he brought me out a Salted Carmel Cupcake to try and I think I about died and went to heaven. This was the best cupcake that I have ever eaten! Corner Bakery also has great desserts which are perfect for gifts!
“On a Corner. That’s Where it Started.
Inspired by great fresh ingredients, our small neighborhood bakery on a corner in downtown Chicago began creating artisan breads and freshly baked sweets. And upon a little success, neighbors began to ask us for sandwiches made with that fabulous bread, followed by homemade soups and salads, and even made-to-order scramblers. Our guests’ requests continued to inspire us as our bakery’s menu and business grew.
Today, we continue to fulfill the needs and desires of our neighbors with a menu of ingredient-inspired, prepared-to-order food. When you visit our cafe, you’ll see real kitchens in place of assembly lines. You’ll hear the chopping of over 40 types of fresh herbs, fruits and vegetables, and the sizzle of our real panini grill. You’ll see the stove’s open flame and feel the warmth from our ovens working all day long. They’re the traditions we established years ago that we still passionately follow today.
In 2004, we dove deep into the hearts, minds and appetites of our guests to explore their connection with our cafes. That’s when we found our niche in the neighborhoods around us, introduced a new logo (that still gave a home to our lovable, signature Baker Boy) and brought a new “look and feel” to our dining rooms.
In September of 2005, our newest cafe model opened in Laguna Niguel, California. The opening was a huge success with increased traffic, record sales and higher guest satisfaction for our unsurpassed quality. We began accepting franchises in 2006 and have continued to grow and evolve our Corner Baker Cafe brand through each unique franchisee relationship across the country. Today, we have strong partnerships with leaders in our industry, and we’re more passionate than ever about staying connected with our guests as we introduce Corner Bakery Cafe to new neighborhoods across the U.S.”
Corner Bakery also loves to give back to the community around them and are always helping out local charities.
