The Corner Bakery offers the most deeevine muffins -- and after 11:00, you get two for the price of one!! Yaaay! Their baked goods are very good! They also offer a Tomato/Basil Soup that is wonderful. I recomend this stop for a quick soup or sandwich -- casual - order at the counter, they then deliver to your table.

After getting my annual "fix" of baked goods from Corner Bakery's in Chicago for many years, I was so glad when one opened in Foster City so I wouldn't have to "smuggle" 5 Pumpkin Spice mini-bundt cakes home every year..

3* Corner Bakery 977 Hillsdale Foster City, in a shopping center Part of a chain Breakfast and lunch place Loved the trio of salads, even though they got one of the salads wrong The soup and sandwich combo was overpriced for the dinky proportions The counter service is efficient; although the place seems understaffed

when there with two partners and while we were getting water, self service, one of the waiters took my purse. At first they denied to the police we were eating there, but the camera video told a different story. Food average, service average.

My colleagues recommended Corner Bakery for lunch. I ended up there having breakfast on one day and lunch on another day. Sandwiches are great. Had the lemon pound cake too, delish. Coffee was just right, not too strong. Very nice staff, good environment for casual dining.

This is one of those "hit/cool" sandwich shop, which you see sprint out everywhere. Not bad, but nothing unique or special about.

It was just ok, nothing to write home about. The order line is a bit confusing. The menu could be explained in greater detail. I think this restaurant will have some growing pains.

The dinners are rather micro-wavy, but they do have good coffee and ok breakfasts. I think they're still figuring out the details.

Nice food. Great place to catch up with friends. I always notice a line after 11:30 but I think it does move fast. I love all their cakes. Stays fresh so it makes for a great breakfast food the next day.
