The business district of Center City tends to be a ghost-town on the weekends. So when the GF's folks were in town, we were surprised to see that the Corner Bakery was open on a Saturday morning. Needing some simple fuel for the typical tourist walk, we stopped in.
There's plenty of seating here - clearly capable of taking in the business crowd during the work week.
Mac n Cheese & Caesar Salad Combo [$8.69]
The GF decided to go with the mac n cheese & salad combo. The macaroni was nicely al dente, with a sharp cheddar sauce coating the noodles - a bit wet for my taste, but certainly to the GF's liking. It came topped with bread crumbs and grilled bread on the side.
A side of caesar salad was decent - lettuce, shreds of Parmesan, and bread crumbs - hard to go wrong here.
Scrambled eggs, smoked bacon, tomatoes, green onions, cheddar, avocado
I was in the mood for a breakfast sandwich so went with one of their scrambler sandwiches. A melange of creamy avocado and scrambled eggs was accented nicely by the bite of green onion and the crispy bits of bacon. The cheddar brought it all together within the house-made bread, grilled on a panini. I was hoping for a side of home fries, but they were out shortly before noon.
So if you're looking for some simple fare with some house-made bread, check out Corner Bakery! There's no Panera on the west-side of City Hall, so this will definitely do!
