Looking for a place to have dinner and stumbled across the Corner Cafe. Absolutely great. The meatloaf dinner was excellent and the Missouri Mud Slide is to die for. Large portions. Reasonable price. Great service

Good place to go if you are hungry. Baked goods are their specialty and the open face sandwiches are a must try.

We have always loved this place, but lately the service is terrible! The food is about the same. Use to be good value for what you paid but not anymore. Prices have gone up and mixed with bad service it's not worth the wait.

So much food, and all of it is good. It's comfort food and very generous portions. I do not recommend this place if you are trying to control your weight. I had the chicken fried chicken and it was very, very good. Plenty of gravy and the gravy was also excellent. The sides were like home cooking, and even though... More

So the food was good. It was true homemade mashed potatoes and bakery items from scratch. We were there close to noon on a Saturday and it was packed. They accommodated our very large group well and corrected errors in our order quickly. I would agree it probably could have been a little cleaner. However, compared to many restaurants, it... More

This is close to our home so we eat there every now and then. I love their breakfasts, in particular the omelettes and hot chocolate with whipped cream. For lunch I love the Rueben or pork tenderloin sandwich. They also serve lots of cinnamon rolls and homemade pies. This is a locals favorite for good reason.

A friend and I were visiting KC and came for dinner upon the recommendation of hotel staff where we stayed. I had the open faced turkey sandwich with mashed potatoes and gravy and my friend had the chicken fried steak, which was as big as the plate, with mashed potatoes and gravy. She chose not to finish it because we... More

I want to start by saying that I am giving this place a higher rating than it probably deserved. We ordered two pies (banana cream & Pumpkin) for a birthday and both were either canned or pre-made and not made fresh. The banana cream we threw out as it tasted like an instant pudding with brown mushy bananas on the... More

We were visiting the area from Ohio and happened upon this wonderful establishment. Had a delicious breakfast that couldn't have been better. Wait staff was efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend! We arrived just in time on a Sunday morning because when we departed there was quite a wait. Next time we are going to splurge on one of... More
