Where do you go when you want a delicious meal served quickly for a fair price? Most would head to the nearest fast- food drive thru, but there are better, healthier restaurant options that offer better food for only a slightly greater cost. One of them is the Corner Bakery Café, a restaurant chain that is quickly expanding in the Houston area and across the nation.
What is Corner Bakery Café?
Corner Bakery Café is a small restaurant that specializes in breakfasts, sandwiches, salads, and more in a cafeteria- like setting. It promotes itself as a neighborhood café and is often compared to Panera Bread and other, similar restaurants. The chain was founded in Chicago in 1991 and has grown rapidly in recent years. Here in the Houston area, there are presently four locations but plans call for opening another 18 locations over the next five years.
What are the Menu Selections?
Corner Bakery Café has its customers covered from breakfast through dinner. Here is a quick list of some of the foods prepared and served at this restaurant chain:
- Fresh Salads
- Soups & Chili
- Signature Sandwiches
- Grilled Panini
- Bakery Treats
Corner Bakery Café also offers a kids menu along with coffees, tea, and other beverages. Each menu category above includes multiple menu options and, when all food choices are considered, the selection is surprisingly large for a neighborhood café restaurant of this size.
How Can I Find a Location Near Me?
Here in Houston, there are presently four Corner Bakery Café locations:
- 1000 Main St., #100, Houston
- 2615 Southwest Fwy, #100, Houston
- 9630 Westheimer Rd., Houston
- 107 Yale St., Houston (NEW!)
Those who live in other parts of the United States can find a Corner Bakery Café near them by logging into the company web site and then clicking the link “Find Your Café” near the top of the main page. The restaurant is presently in 14 states (Arizona, California, Colorado, D.C., Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, and Virginia) plus Washington D.C., but with its recent expansion efforts, it is only a matter of time until more states are added to the list so check the web site frequently.
Is it Expensive?
Families will be happy to hear that the Corner Bakery Café is a reasonably- priced restaurant that should easily fit within the constraints of most any family budget. With all menu items presently priced from $5 to $8, the per- person cost, including drink, is less than $10. A family of four can dine at Corner Bakery Café for only slightly more than the cost of dining at a fast- food restaurant.
Visit the Corner Bakery Café web site, find a location near you, and plan a family or individual outing for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The prices are low, the food is fresh and delicious, and the atmosphere is casual and clean. It’s a nice little neighborhood restaurant with much to offer and many things to share.
