Fast forward 13 years (oh my gah how am I so OLD?), and I found out that a Corner Bakery was opening up super close to where my brother-in-law lives and where Colby works. We kept meaning to stop in at some point and then I was contacted by the awesome people at CB to see if I wanted some vouchers to try the food there. Yes, please. We've been there several times and, between the two of us, have sampled a large part of the menu. Here's what we got:
The Uptown Turkey Sandwich was really good. It's basically a club with avocado. I also really like their chips and Colby likes their pickles. I know this because he always tries to steal mine.
They have a lot of combo offerings, from soup and salad to salad and sandwiches, etc. I got the chicken noodle soup and a half turkey pretzel sandwich. The soup was unremarkable, but the sandwich was pretty good.
|Signature Sandwich Corner Combo: Chicken Noodle Soup and Turkey Pretzel - $7.69|
|The Trio: Southwest Avocado Wedge Salad, Mozzarella, Tomato and Arugula Salad, Broccoli Cheddar Soup - $7.99|
|Chicken Pesto Sandwich - $7.49|
|Turkey Pretzel Sandwich - $6.99|
This chicken pomodori panini is probably my favorite sandwich of the bunch. There's nothing better than a good panini and between the cheese and the chicken and the tomatoes, it made for a really tasty, filling dinner.
|Chicken Pomodori Panini - $7.59|
|Chocolate Chip and Sugar Cookies|
In essence, this place is great for lunch if you're in the Arboretum area of Austin or for a light dinner. We've been there several times now and it's already becoming one of our regular spots in Austin.
P.S. If you happened to grab a turkey and brie sandwich from the Corner Bakery in the Field Museum on a Spring day in 1999, please know that we never opened the sandwich and that it was perfectly fine that you ate it.
Disclaimer: I received vouchers that covered the cost of part of these meals, but the opinions are all my own.
