For the first time, TripAdvisor has released a list of top restaurant chains offering high-quality service and exceptional meals at a great value. The American travel and restaurant website company looked at millions of reviews and opinions to determine its list.
Corner Bakery Cafe was one of the top large chains, coming in at #9 on the list of chains with 101 or more locations nationwide. It was the only bakery-café chain to make the list.
“It's quite an honor and a testament to our operators to receive this exclusive recognition,” says Corner Bakery CEO Frank Paci. “It is our commitment to display amazing hospitality while offering fresh, high-quality meals to every customer that walks into one of our locations.”
Founded in 1991, Corner Bakery Cafe serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner options to guests in 23 states and Washington, D.C. There are nearly 200 company-owned and franchised locations around the country. The bakery-café chain’s extensive menu and welcoming atmosphere are just a couple of the reasons it has garnered positive reviews from guests.
“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,” says one TripAdvisor reviewer about Corner Bakery Cafe.
