54 Cafe has been around for decades. It caters to all looking for very good breakfasts or lunches, served quickly, and the prices are right. Service is quick and servers are very personable.

What a great place to eat. I'd passed this place a hundred times and I finally stopped. This place is friendly and the food is great. There is no way you leave without a to go tray. The pancakes are huge, real bacon and eggs. If you stop once your hooked, I am.

We were travelling to Kansas City International, to fly to Houston. We stopped at 54 Cafe for a break and breakfast. When we asked about food delivery time, we were told up to 20 minutes. The manager asked why, and when we said we had to catch a plane, he asked the server to seat us and take our order... More

Met a couple of sales reps to make a joint presentation and wanted them to get a taste of some of the best of the local flare. Been eating at the 54 Cafe for over 55 years now. Different cooks and waitstaff, but always a wonderful experience! Authentic biscuits and gravy and ask for the hash brown crispy with onions!

Great breakfast quick service and clean. Would love to see real cream for coffee and real butter for pancakes but you can't have everything!

This cafe has been there for years. They have recently renovated it and made it smoke free. It has just your every-day meals and they are good.

Stopped for lunch while driving south from Kansas City. We were a little taken aback by the sign Burgers - Chinese Food. Our grandson had the burger, our granddaughter and I had Chinese dishes, and both were excellent. The service was fast and friendly, and this is obviously a good after-church location for the locals!

The seating on the weekends can be difficult. We have has to wait 30 minutes sometimes before we could grab a table, but it is worth the wait! Their pancakes are fluffy and melt in your mouth. The biscuits & gravy is pretty great too. They recently removed the smoking section and it makes it so much more pleasant to... More

If you would like to travel back in time you should eat here. For starters it is like going back in time. It is full of people that all know each other in a small town. The food is good and the people are nice so enjoy this fine cafe and it's old town charm....

Thank Bill D
