Great lunch. Much better than Cracker Barrel and the cinnamon rolls are awesome. Very good breakfast. Would go here again.

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.

This is one of the best little cafes we have stumbled across while traveling. Home cooked southern food just like my momma makes it. The homemade rolls were personally the best I have ever had. The hamburgers were perfect. The desserts look scrumptious but we were too full.. But I regret not getting something to go. Also, they have excellent... More

Amazing biscuits and sausage gravy andI usually have scrambled eggs and bacon, too. Hash browned potatoes are great. If you are up to it, get a humongous cinnamon roll to finish it off and you'll be so overloaded with carbs you'll be able to sleep like a baby when the insulin kicks in! Tables are not always super clean, especially... More
