Went between soccer games. Food was good. Staff were friendly. It took a very long time to get our food. The blueberry cinnamon roll was delightful. The fresh fruit was very good. The quiche was good, but seemed like it had been there couple of days.

There are a small collection of sandwiches and a daily selection such as chicken casserole. The casserole did not taste homemade and was very bland. The sandwiches were reportedly good. The surroundings were clean and comfortable.

Fabulous food and very nice, helpful people. Our first visit and we will definitely go back. Owner even told us about a place to get yellow tomatoes [less acid] and then called the stand to make sure yellow tomatoes were available. They were & we went delicious! As to Bean Counter: Food is fresh and tasty. Desserts divine. Next time... More

Having just read an article in the local magazine, we decided to give this place a try. Nice atmosphere with a pretty view of some small lakes; and the staff was warm and friendly. I had quiche - which was average, but my husband had the biscuits and gravy - and he was so happy with the amount of tasty... More

The staff was very warm and welcoming. They were helpful and make it an enjoyable experience. The coffee was very good. The quiches and pastries were delicious. Clever name, since it is nestled in a bank. Not the most space in the immediate cafe, however there is ample room for larger groups with the use of a conference room that's... More

I used to work for the owner at a precious restaurant and was very excited when she opened this place. Amazing food that changes with what is in season. Never had a bad item there! Don't make it there as often as I would like!

The Bean Counter started its life as a coffee shop/stop for people on the main floor of a bank building on 7 Highway, Lee's Summit, MO. It soon changed owners and is now one of the best breakfast or lunch stops in the area. It also doubles as a meeting place for many groups and organizations. The food is always... More

This delightful little place is located in a bank building. An architectural gem of a bank building. (IMHO) But, I digress.....Sarah and her crew are so warm and glad to see you. It's a great gathering spot. Even her local regulars are warm and friendly. It's NOT fast food. It's great food, coffee beverages and a chance to slow down... More
