Corner Bakery Cafe to open in Elk Grove site on Monday

Corner Bakery Cafe, a Dallas-based fast-casual restaurant, will open Monday in Laguna Gateway Shopping Center in Elk Grove.

The cafe at 8235 Laguna Blvd. is the second in the area. In March, a Corner Bakery opened at 2281 Del Paso Road in Park Place Shopping Center in Natomas.

The first 100 customers through the doors at 7 a.m. on opening day in Elk Grove will receive a travel mug, good for free daily coffee refills for one year.

The Elk Grove cafe will be operated by Harsh Ghai and Dhruv Shah of Pleasanton-based East Bay Restaurants Inc., which operates nearly 70 fast-food franchises. .
