Corner Bakery will replace the Baker’s Square at 1305 E. Capitol Dr. in the Village of Shorewood.  The existing building will be renovated, improved and expanded. 

Wisconsin's first Corner Bakery Café opened nearly two years ago in October at The Mayfair Collection, 11500 W. Burleigh St.  Now, the local franchise group owned and operated by Dimitri and Peter Dimitropoulos is eyeing a second location in Shorewood. The family also owns the Culver’s location that’s just east of the new Corner Bakery site.  The Culver's is currently closed for remodeling.    

The new Corner Bakery will expand upon the parking area and will add a patio, bike parking and a bike maintenance station. A drive-thru for the new restaurant and parking for the village’s new multimedia, public art project, The Ghost Train, also will be added. 

The proposal submitted to the Village of Shorewood will be under consideration at the Plan Commission meeting on Tuesday evening. 

Proposed hours for the new restaurant are 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days a week, with approximately 60-70 staff. An opening date has yet to be announced, but the Baker's Square is expected to close at the end of the year.
