The Corner Bakery

My very talented friend Lauri
Part of my holiday festivities this year included some fun outings with friends.  Here I'm putting dessert before lunch, but I had to post the photo of Lauri first.  Lauri is a highly talented comedic actress, among other things.  I don't get to see her often enough, but I sure enjoy her company!

One day during the Christmas holiday we went off for lunch and a movie.

I love Yogurtland!
Lunch included a visit to the newly opened Corner Bakery on Whittier Boulevard.

The place was packed with people.

It was an interesting place.  The food was good.  They have a wide variety of soups, salads and sandwiches.  My friend had a roast beef sandwich that looked really yummy.  I had a tri-salad plate with (my choice) of an avocado salad, a kale salad and a tuna salad that was also very good.  The service wasn't bad, either.  Although I prefer a sit-down restaurant where the wait staff takes your orders and serves you, this wasn't bad.  I'll have to try them again sometime.

The Tea/Coffee bar
 It's nice that you can order on-line.  It saves the wait in line if you're in a hurry.

After lunch we went off to the Uptown theaters to see the latest Night at the Museum movie.  It was great!  Two thumbs up.  If I had three thumbs they'd all be up.

But that would be weird.  So, never mind.

A visit to Yogurtland for some dessert topped off a really great afternoon.  The best gift I got for Christmas this year was all the time spent with good friends.

Hope your new year is off to a good start, too!
