“Exciting Tastes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

The food was great at this quaint but very good cafe. I had the curry chicken salad it was very flavorful and moist. My fiancee had the breakfast sandwich can't remember the name but it was very good. The particular breakfast sandwich, which name escapes me is one of there top sellers. The tomatoe soup with feta chesse was also very good. It is a small but nice place and the crowds keep this cafe very busy. I would defintely reccomemend this cafe and will be returning.

“Great get away from the routine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

Best sandwiches and soups in KC. Eclectic atmosphere is a plus....get there early, not a huge number of seats.

“Cute little spot in the River Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

I met some friends here for breakfast a few days ago. I was disappointed to hear that they were completely sold out of biscuits and gravy at 9 am, but the breakfast sandwich was delicious, so I can't complain too much. I'll definitely be back!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

Stopped on my way through KC. Wasn't disappointed! Little pricey for a sandwich but worth it.
