SOUTH PLAINFIELD, NJ – Corner Bakery Cafe is ready to “Feed the Day” in South Plainfield with the opening of the area’s first cafe on Monday, Aug. 18.

Corner Bakery Cafe will add excitement on opening day and throughout the first weeks of business with several delicious prizes and giveaways. On opening day, the first 100 guests through the door at 7 a.m. will receive a complimentary Corner Bakery Cafe travel mug and free daily refills of hand-roasted coffee for a year.
