We stopped and had a late lunch at Corner Cafe. The food was excellent, but the service could have been better. The waitresses seemed to be arguing over which tables were in a certain section and who had our table. This delayed our water refills.

Everything I've had there has been good - nothing fancy, but good. I've had their chicken, livers, turkey, pot roast, cat fish, cod, etc. I especially enjoy liver once in a while. Nobody offers it anymore, and theirs is good. With dinner comes a roll and two sides of your choice. Don't pass up on the home made cobblers. Yummm.... More

Best breakfast I've had in some time. An amazing cinnamon roll, a good cup of Joe and superbly cooked corned beef hash & eggs made for a wonderful and very satisfying breakfast after a long morning of flying around bad weather. Attitude adjusted!

Sunday morning breakfast while visiting Kansas City. Hotel recommended this place. There were lots of people waiting to get seated, but we got our table pretty quickly. We ordered, and then waited a very LONG time for our food. We were beginning to wonder is they'd forgotten our order, when the yummy breakfasts arrived. Initially, there weren't enough servers, but... More

They use instant mashed potatoes. That to me is just a big no no. The rest of the food is usually pretty decent and the staff is always nice.

This restaurant is one of our favorites. You can go for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just dessert. Their homemade biscuits and hot rolls are to die for and the cinnamon rolls are huge. They serve breakfast all day and have daily specials. I love the fried chicken and tenderloins. Last night I had the special ham & navy beans with... More

The Corner Cafe is the place to have lunch in Riverside. The food is very good and the portions are plentiful. Great facility. The service is mediocre at best, so don't expect much. Save room for a slice of pie!

If you pass through KC you have to stop in Riverside Missouri. I have been coming here since 1994 and even though the building has changed the meals have not. You still get great portions and you can't beat the prices. Down home cooking is s must do.
