We had done some shopping in Burlington (Exit 12 on the 89) and were headed towards the highway, but wanted lunch. It was late (after 2:30) and although the cafe was about to close, the staff was gracious and allowed us to order lunch. This cafe did not disappoint. I had a delicious chicken salad sandwich (homemade bread) with salad... More

The word 'Bakery' in the name says a great deal. The selection of pastries and baked goods is extensive. There is also a large selection of take-out salads and dishes. Chef's Corner is a premier location for lunch! The selection of sandwiches covers two very large blackboards. One orders at a counter and takes a table in a crowded space... More

This is a must visit in the area. It is a little pricey for breakfast ($40 for two breakfasts with coffee but worth it. I had French toast that was slightly crunchy and soft with homemade maple syrup and preserves. My companion had eggs home fries Bacon and if they get. It was delicious. After breakfast we selected some pastries... More

The bakery and the meals both are excellent. While we stayed in Burlington, we used to get here for our breakfast everyday. Also picked up pastries for friends and family on our way back. Only if this was not 300 miles away, I would have gone back to get their lemon pastry again.

Love the freshly made soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts. Something for everyone. Have enjoyed lunch here twice and will continue to return. Always a line to order, but it goes quickly and they seem to have enough seating to accommodate the crowd. You order at the counter and then they bring your food to your table. Yummy treats too!

It's our second time here and this place doesn't disappoint. Breakfast always delicious and filling. Pastries are always fresh. Service always quick. On weekends this place is always packed, but well worth the wait.

I've been to Chef's Corner several times and am never disappointed. I'm a big fan of the quiche and the veggie quiche today was excellent!

I have been meeting a friend here for lunch for several months now. We eat here because the food is good and service is quick, but we can also sit and talk without interruption. The selection is excellent - sandwiches, salads and some hot plate specials, as well as a large selection of cold salad/appetizers and pastries. You stand in... More

We absolutely loved it here. We had breakfast 2 out of the 3 mornings we were in the Essex area. There were so many items to choose from and anything we tried was fresh and delicious. If you're in the area, stop here, you will love it!

We had such a good breakfast/lunch on Sunday, we went back on Monday for lunch! Wonderful butternut squash bisque, curry chicken salad, quiche and the pastries are to die for!
