This is a unique breakfast/brunch/lunch place. It is on a corner surrounded by houses/apartments. If you are driving through a neighborhood you are in the right place. The inside is retro/throwback. They sell odds and ends (sodas, produce, etc.) - almost like a hipster cracker barrel. You order from a counter and then seat yourself and the food is brought... More

One of the best restaurants in KC! Very cute little spot in the Hospital Hill area. This place has never given us a bad plate in a dozen+ visits. Great good, good service. If you are just a visitor or are a local, it is simply one of the best.

I ate here for the first time this morning, and I would go back... I think. I thought my dish was very good. I had the breakfast casserole, which was essentially eggs, sausage, mushrooms, with mushroom gravy on top. It was served with a small slice of watermelon (which seemed to be true for most dishes). Many of the folks... More

I knew from the moment we drove up that this is "my kind of place"..outside tables, funky well kept neighborhood. The inside didn't disappoint. Exactly what I was looking for. Nice menu, great coffee and really friendly folks. Anne, the manager, is awesome. Explained the menu, made great latte and when I asked about the "cucumber soda" she gave me... More

If you are a bit on the adventurous side, You Say Tomato is a place for you! It is a converted olde-time grocery store and the interior is very eclectic and retro. It is very casual , you order at the counter then sit down and they bring your food out to you. We went for brunch and had the... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of having brunch at You Say Tomato a couple of Saturdays ago. It was MARVELOUS!! I had the quiche, and he had the breakfast flatbread, and we both had the coffee, and everything was absolutely DELICIOUS! The service is wonderful; the girls behind the counter are so friendly and helpful, and they make... More

When I looked for a place to eat breakfast, Yelp and Google Maps had this at 4.1 out of 5 stars. What a mistake!!! The place looks like a re-converted pawn shop. The breakfast menu was small and not appetizing. We ordered the french toast, corned beef hash, and the breakfast croissant. My family and I were not to pleased... More

Selected this place for a gathering of school folks.....was a great choice. Their cappuchino cannot be beat and the croissant breakfast sandwich was yummy. My friend tried the quiche because he said he had seen it on the webiste, and it lived up to its image. Seems to be well patroniced by students from the dental school down the street... More

We got a tip from the receptionist at our hotel to try You Say Tomato and we were all happy with our food. I had what they call the best grilled cheese sandwich in the city...and I believe them! I also tried the biscuits with both sausage gravy and mushroom gravy and loved them both. They had delicious croissant breakfast... More

We were staying on the west side of town and looked for a place to walk to for breakfast - this and succotash are good options. This is a small place in a residential area - it operates as a local market too! The environment is serene, no false pretenses here. Just good food in a relaxing atmosphere. We had... More
