The homemade bake goods are indescribably delicious. The breakfast is wonderful, but you can't miss with one of the hand breaded tenderloins big as the plate that it is served in. You can actually tell that it is a pork cutlet, instead of mystery meat too. The blackberry cobbler yum yum. If you want the wonderfully huge biscuits you must... More

Saturday morning breakfast was delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful. Service was great as well. I am a celiac so a lot was off limits, but the cinnamon looked amazing. They were enormous. Can't wait to go back!!!

I wasn't intentionally carb loading but this tasty place was flavorful. Get away from the chain breakfast places and enjoy fresh baked biscuits and rolls. The sausage & biscuits were delicious.

We decided to stop in after driving by a few times. To say the food was good would be a disservice. The food was excellent and just right. There was a bit of a wait but for the service and taste it was well worth it.

I had the tenderloin with corn nuggets and green beans. It's was delicious. My son said the French toast was good but the dinner rolls would melt in your mouth.

In town for a business trip and my coworkers kept raving about thsi place stopped in for pie in the afternoon, and was hooked! I had the banana split pie. Simply delicious. Came back in the morning for breakfast before meetings began at the conference. Good, hearty, and homey kind of food. Fast service.

The Corner Cafe is a unique place outside of Kansas City. Most importantly, the food is very good. The atmosphere is fun. It can get busy and and the staff appears overworked, i.e., not too much attention after your order has been placed.

We went for lunch on a Sunday and it was absolutely packed but in a good way, like you know the food has to be good if that many people are there. The prices are reasonable and they have a great selection including all-day breakfast. I personally had an omelet, with a cinnamon roll to go. The omelet was good... More
