I am a big fan of sandwiches in any form. I’m not sure if it’s the ease of eating sandwiches, wraps, paninis or pitas in their hand held form, or if it’s the mix of flavors and textures encased in soft bread, but either way, they are always a good choice in my book. The fact that my 5-year-old, almost 2-year- old and husband are very pro-sandwich is also a big plus. To top it off, the budget-friendly prices and the easy going atmosphere are why Corner Bakery Café is always on my short list for a family meal away from home. And when it comes to working lunches at the office, Corner Bakery Café’s good food and diet-friendly choices are why it’s on speed dial!
This was the case during Thanksgiving week, when we ordered in lunch from Corner Bakery Café here at the office. It was a full house – plus, Anita’s and my daughters were lucky enough to be on vacation from school and spending the day with us. With 24 different Healthy Dining choices for lunch, there was something for everyone, from the many salads to the Trios to the Corner Combos. Some of the combos selected were:
- D.C. Chicken Salad on Steakhouse Rye and Mixed Greens Side Salad
- Harvest Salad and Three Lentil Vegetable Soup
- Penne Marinara & Mixed Greens Side Salad
- Caesar Salad with Chicken and Chicken Noodle Soup
I ordered the Corner Combo with a California Grille Panini and Mixed Greens Side Salad. I never turn down a chance to eat ingredients like artichoke hearts, roasted tomato and pesto! The warm bread grilled to golden goodness with the gooey provolone and all those tasty ingredients inside plus the side salad is just 410 calories, an easy and seemingly decadent fit in my diet. I also was able to sample some of the Spinach Sweet Crisp Salad a co-worker ordered. This picture shows my panini with the spinach salad.
My daughter, who seems to get pickier as she gets older, chose the Kid’s Combo with the Turkey Sandwich, carrot sticks and fruit medley. It was all I could do to snap this picture before she devoured it all. The fruit medley didn’t last long enough to make it in the picture.
Whether you’re picking up a quick meal to take home, stopping for a bite to eat with the family or ordering in for lunch at work, Corner Bakery Café has choices for everyone!
