Delicious

I have been to You Say Tomato a few times and have always enjoyed the food. But I had lunch here on a whim earlier this week and was more than pleased. I had an egg salad sandwich with the offered toppings of red bell pepper, red onion, tomato and lettuce on rye bread. This stuff was fresh. The... read more

This offbeat midtown eatery is our new favorite breakfast place in KC. Start with a delicious $1.99 cappuccino, then move to the incomparable mushroom/sausage casserole covered in a rich white gravy, add a side of jalapeno cheese grits and a take out order of their not too sweet cinnamon roll and you're on your way to glutton paradise. You can... More

Great service, unique atmosphere, yummy food. My husband and I split a cinnamon roll the size of my head. A must eat when visiting KC.

I LOVE this place. I have had several business breakfasts here as well. The food is fantastic and the people are really nice and the price is right. Perfect.

My husband and I had breakfast here this past weekend. We were staying at the Crowne Center, and it was a little less than a mile of walking. I enjoyed the breakfast quiche, which was some of the best I have ever had! The crust was perfection. My husband had their breakfast flatbread which I was able to steal a... More

This is a cool little place (no frills for sure) for breakfast. I dined here with a friend recently and was totally blown away by their breakfast quiche or pie (or whatever it was called). It was a huge piece and baked perfectly. Beware though that when you are at the cash register, you will come face to face with... More

Believe your GPS when it says you have arrived! This place is outwardly very unassuming but the food is wonderful. A variety of items, quiche, soups or sandwiches and then there are the big pieces of wonderful pies! Our quiches (a vegetarian and a meat option) were both delicious as was the butternut squash curry soup! Do find this gem... More

Nice, very casual, friendly place for lunch. Had the pot pie, and it was excellent. My husband had the beef sandwich with caramelized onions. Both were large enough to split or take home half. My daughters love this place.

This is really my neighborhood restaurant. I live just two blocks away. It is not large. It does not have a restaurant kitchen so the choices are limited to what they can grill or bake. It is not open for dinner. It is admittedly quirky. But for me it is a comfortable place to have lunch and chat. So, to... More

If you like casual eating...often in the company of people in the arts...this is a great place. A tasty menu, great surroundings, and it feels more like a place you are having a meal with friends rather than going to a restaurant. It's my regular place to have brunch when I'm in Kansas City. If you like formality forget it.... More
