The Corner House that is…
A new coffee shop opened up in town and I LOVE it and I don’t even drink coffee!
But I’ve grown fond of having a gathering place to meet others and hang out talking about the cool things that nerds talk about or just taking a few minutes and prepare for the the day. The Corner House in Lombard is the perfect place to do just that.
I’ve heard plenty of people ordering crazy coffee drinks so I’m sure they can make just about anything. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker they have a lot to choose from. Like teas and smoothies which are pretty smooth. Their White Hot Chocolate, perfect!
Lombard has long needed a place like this, they’ve come and gone and I hope The Corner House is here to stay. They picked a great location, just a few steps away from train at the corner of St. Charles and Park in downtown Lombard. The Corner House has a Great atomosphere for hanging out enjoying a good drink or pastry.
The staff is fun and nice and they’re doing a great job of getting to know their new customers.
If they ask you to warm up the cookie do it! Warm cookies are always the best. When ordering tea ask for “The Show” it really forces you to sit back and enjoy your surroundings. It comes with a little timer and a pot to watch the tea steep to perfection. Plus they have a lot of different brews to choose from, I’m kind of stuck on the White Monkey now. Maybe it’s just the name…

Mornings are quite there so be sure and stop in before you head into the office or just start your day. This is a nice little gem that picked Lombard and the crew is very local. There are interesting photos on the wall to check out which I hope turns into a rotating venue showcasing local artists (hint). As the week ends they even bring in live entertainment.
Whatever your reason is to get a cup of coffee or your favorite drink you’ll like the effort they put into the decor the accommodations. They’ve done a great job with the surroundings which adds to the much needed cozy place in Lombard.
If you’re ever in there on a Monday morning and you see me typing away at my computer just say hi. I might even buy you a drink.
Welcome to Lombard, Corner House!
