Great place for down home good food!!

Worth the drive from Overland Park to get some down home good eats. I had a delicious fried catfish filet with tasty cole slaw and the best onion rings I've ever tasted. Hubby went with the hamburger patty with grilled onions and gravy, baked potato and tossed salad. The servings are very generous... read more

When I visit my hometown (KC), I always have to stop at the Corner Cafe for a pork tenderloin, onion rings and one of their fabulous desserts. Don't miss this place, go early because it gets crowded with locals.

My family moved to Riverside recently. Even before arriving in our new community, a number of people told us that The Corner Cafe was a place we had to try. This restaurant is a local hot spot, and bustling most of the time. Even so, we have never had to wait longer than 10 minutes for a table. The servers... More

Our pick toddler hardly ever finishes her food. This time she ate every bite. My husband & I enjoyed our food also. We will be back in the future.

I've had breakfast here about a dozen times in the last year. Generally order the breakfast porkchop (sometimes the double). Everything I've had has been very satisfying, perfect diner breakfasts!

This was our first time to this location. The food was very good. The service was a tad bit slow but above average. Food out of the kitchen was hot. Biscuit and gravy is great here, but they stop serving that at 11am. Don't be late! You can't go wrong with Corner Cafe.

Always make a stop here when in the KC area. All of the food is very good. Service is great even when it is very busy. Cinnamon and pecan rolls are always on my to go menu after dining. Great for breakfast the next day.

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 course, the giant, crazy-good cinnamon rolls. For lunch and dinner,... 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
