Excellent food, great service

There are several locations of the Kansas City family-owned Corner Cafe and, luckily, one is just 10 minutes from our home. I've visited at least a dozen times for breakfast, lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. Some of my favorites are The Gringo omelette for breakfast and, of... read more

I have always heard you can tell how good the food is by the parking lot. Which is the case at "The Corner Cafe". Their parking lot is always full but don't let that stop a visit. There is ample room inside and the wait is alway short and worth every minute. With hours from 5 AM to 10 PM... More

If you spend the weekend at Argosy Hotel and Casino you should not miss breakfast at Corner Cafe on the way out of town. You can make a meal out of just one cinnamon roll. Have never had a bad breakfast here.

Promptly seated on a Saturday night! Grilled liver and onions were very good. Service was prompt. Part of order was wrong and was replaced with correct food. Blackberry cobbler was good. Cleanliness of floor could be better..

The food is good, better than 'like home'. The helpings are adequate. The atmosphere is great. Plenty of parking spaces.

A local friend treated me to breakfast here as we drove from the airport to the city. The menu is traditional comfort food, the service was genuinely friendly and we couldn't finish our entrées. Plan on a slight but worthwhile wait.

It’s probably a good thing that the Corner Café is located halfway across the country from where I live because I enjoy eating there a little too much. A combination of staff that really seems to enjoy being there, really good food, (their dinner rolls may be addictive) and a wide selection home style choices have always made Corner Cafe... More

Wonderful lunch. They have an extensive menu, making it hard to choose what to try. I went with the meatloaf special. My husband, the chicken fried steak. Both were very good and plentiful. Can't wait to go back and try something different. Don't miss the hot rolls, they are also very good, as are the other baked goods.
