We had delicious burgers and fries, and of course, pie! Suggest getting there early for best selection. Often packed during peak hours, but it doesn't take long to get seated. We always stop when we are in town for pie and coffee, if nothing else.

Nestled in the NOTO district of Topeka, Bradleys Corner Cafe is a North Topeka treasure. It is a small restaurant and the atmosphere is that of an old-time diner or cafe. The servers fit the venue perfectly and I always expect them to pull a pencil from behind their ear and jot down the orders on a small order pad!... More

I have put off writing this review for a few days because I thought I should let things smooth a bit. Had I written this immediately after the visit I guess I would have rated it "terrible." The fact is, the review needs to be split into at least three parts. Let's start with the best. The pies are AMAZING!... More

I met my aunt there for lunch. She had a chicken sandwich and I had the pork tender sandwich. Both were good as were the onion rings and hand cut fries. BUT the pie was the absolute best. We had the raisin cream with meringue and it was fantastic. The crust was flaky and the filling nice and firm without... More

This is a great diner, great food made just how you like it, if you have a favorite pie they probably have it. Some pie flavors and combination I had not heard of before. Even the rolls are fantastic.

Immediate impressions were an unpleasant odor. Table, silverware were dirty. Several minutes in an almost empty place before 1 of 4 waitresses came to take our drink order. Food was just okay. Coffee was old. But the thing that bothered me most was the smell. Would not go back. Maybe I should have had pie. Did see 3 whole pies... More

I don't understand how this place has high reviews. It's a small diner (usually love them) but it is filthy. The walls and floor in bathroom are covered in bug droppings. Don't even peek in the kitchen because you will just pray the meal you just ate doesn't give you food poisoning. The meal was similar to what you would... More

On a corner in NOTO, this small restaurant (in the old Kaw Valley Bank Building) offers diner-style breakfast featuring Fanestil meats (sausage and ham) which is a huge plus. It's a hometown diner -- expect that the potatoes will be grilled using grease. Like many hometown cafes, the real star is the pie. The sour cream raisin (with homemade meringue)... More
