Corner Bakery Cafe is the type of restaurant or company you simply don't see much of anymore. While we understand the importance of a healthy bottom line, we also believe in simply being healthy -- knowing that we're all here to make a living. We also believe in making a difference, and that difference comes from hiring people who want to laugh, help and serve. We're people who have a taste for success, and we're a team who believes a benefits package should always include the time and flexibility to balance life's demands. We believe in growing...together.
