Corner Bakery Cafe http://j.mp/1KBeFMk http://j.mp/1KBeFMk#comments Mon, 08 Feb 2016 08:02:00 +0000 http://sacramentoconnect.sacbee.com/?guid=10ed4a251a3d3042fcd6368379cdbc75

I arrived at the Natomas location when they still had the breakfast menu posted. The only vegan breakfast option was the steel-cut oatmeal, but unfortunately, they were out of oatmeal. So I opted for an early lunch instead, choosing a trio consisting of two salads and a soup. The salads I chose were the seasonal fruit medley, which turned out to be delicious strawberries and blueberries, and the southwest avocado, consisting of an avocado half topped with roasted corn and tomato salsa and tortilla strips. The soup was sriracha black bean, which was very tasty with just a hint of spiciness. Field greens and a focaccia roll completed the meal.




I went to the Elk Grove Corner Bakery Café the next day and got another trio, this time with three salads. I ordered the four-grain tabbouleh, made with quinoa, wheat berries, red rice, farro, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a lemon dressing; the Asian edamame salad, consisting of edamame, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, carrots, green onions, basil, cilantro, and a ginger soy dressing; and hummus served with raw vegetables and grilled flatbread. Everything was very fresh and I really enjoyed my meal.




Other vegan salad selections are a toasted sesame kale salad and a quinoa and pico salad. The vegan items are clearly marked on the menu.


The Corner Bakery Café in Natomas is located at 2281 Del Paso Road, and their phone number is 916-928-4500. The Corner Bakery Café in Elk Grove is located at 8235 Laguna Boulevard, and their phone number is 916-478-6250. Both locations are open daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. More information about Corner Bakery Café can be found on their website at http://www.cornerbakerycafe.com/.
