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

Great menu with Daily Specials and fantastic pies. Good choices like Country Fried Steak, Meatloaf, and even Liver and Onions... I didn't try the Liver and Onions but everything else I've ordered has been loaded with gravy and leaves you full and satisfied. The breakfast options are good too. All around good food. Definitely try a slice of pie, they... More

We stopped and had a late lunch at Corner Cafe. The food was excellent, but the service could have been better. The waitresses seemed to be arguing over which tables were in a certain section and who had our table. This delayed our water refills.

Everything I've had there has been good - nothing fancy, but good. I've had their chicken, livers, turkey, pot roast, cat fish, cod, etc. I especially enjoy liver once in a while. Nobody offers it anymore, and theirs is good. With dinner comes a roll and two sides of your choice. Don't pass up on the home made cobblers. Yummm.... More

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
