Corner Bakery is a tricky one for us gluten-free folks. So what is so tricky about the Corner Bakery Gluten Free Menu? Well, they don’t really have one.

When I went to order at Corner Bakery I asked if I could see their gluten free menu. This is what they handed to me:

The menu is from 2010 and it’s 2014. I hope they update it soon. having that said, here is what they have that is gluten free:

I ordered a cup of the chicken tortilla soup and a chopped salad. Both were good. The one thing I will note is that everything at Corner Bakery comes with a side of bread. I specifically ordered no bread, but I received a piece of bread on top of my salad when it arrived. Make sure you are extremely explicit about this when ordering.

Because Corner Bakery is a bakery with lots of baked goods, there is a high risk for cross contamination here. The location I went to even had staff that admitted this. So, if you are celiac or someone with extreme gluten sensitivity you might want to think twice before eating here.

The other thing about the menu I was unclear on is why the eggs aren’t gluten free but egg whites are. They may use flour in their batter to make the eggs fluffier. I have yet to confirm this. If you are reading this and know, please post in the comments.

Overall, Corner Bakery is not the easiest place to find gluten-free foods but they still have a gluten free menu you can look at and you should be able to grab a salad or soup or egg white dish that will be a good choice.

    Thanks for your article. I’m celiac and you saved me from eating the egg scramble. Apparently the half and half which is in the egg mixture has wheat. That’s why it’s egg whites only.

    I went into the corner bakery in la Habra ca and saw the sign about gluten friendly bread. I ask if that meant gluten free and was told no that they do not have gluten free bread. When I asked what”gluten friendly bread ” meant, I was told that the preparation surface was gluten free!! What does that even mean????i told them they should take down sigh as it was misleading. The manager smirked and said he would tell corporate . Be aware!!

    My son worked at corner bakery he was trained and for 2 days and left due to the way he was told to do things,all pre packaged baked items past date if expiration he was told its ok just put it out no one will know..all foods are heated in the microwave which microwaves are fine but nothing is cooked, baked on site all brought in and re heated..I am on a gluten free,sugar free diet and even if I order a salad its not fresh or worth the money my daughter placed an order she also is gluten free she asked for a specific order they got it wrong she knew right away they had messed up..they gave me my money back but offered nothing in replace of it..so,she went without food..Corner Bakery is outside my front door and I would never eat there…I was also told they had gluten free bread and read the sign I was so happy when I asked about it I was told it was new to the menu and was not in store yet..went back another time no gluten free bread..was disappointed..
