Best breakfast dive in KC!

This is one of our FAVORITE KC breakfast spots! The biscuits and gravy are wonderful and I love their corned beef hash. This place has been around for about 8 decades and is about as good as old school diner food gets. One of my favorites is the Irish Dagwood sandwich - grilled rye bread with... read more

It was the kind of diner type atmosphere that used to exist all over, but which doesn't anymore. The woman who took our order was great, they had tea, they had oj, they had great omelettes and marble rye bread...made in heaven for someone like me. My husband also loved it. It's a throw-back in an odd part of town,... More

My friend and I found this place looking for a breakfast place to go after church. This place is perfect for breakfast or lunch and has a great old diner feel to it. The staff is great and always make us feel welcome. It is always busy and there are many regulars, but they always welcome visitors. Great place.

Imagine one of those places that has been in a city longer than you have, that you hardly ever hear about but often drive by and always wonder what it is like...now, imagine walking in and having one of the best breakfasts in recent memory! It may not look like much from the outside, and it may look equally as... More

This little place served up a fabulous burger, fries, and onion rings. It looked like the bedraggled place was populated with "regulars," but we were welcomed and well fed. Prices were great.
