I have eaten here in the past for dinner which was perfectly acceptable. We (2 adults, 2 kids) tried breakfast today and I left knowing that I would most likely never come back. The restaurant was busy on Sunday for lunch and after having been in business for several years I would expect that they would be better prepared for a busy Sunday. After a short wait we were seated to our table. The first strike for me was that their famous biscuits in gravy are not available after 11:00 a.m. even though breakfast is advertised as being served all day. We placed our order after a few minutes.

Over 40 minutes later we finally received our order. My order was half incorrect, one my son's order was half complete, and all of the food was between lukewarm to cool. After some reminders to the waitress she finally completed my son's order.

Receiving the food almost cold and after taking such a long time is unacceptable to me as there are other restaurants for me to go to that perform better.

Pros: Nicely decorated for a cafe, good atmosphere.

Cons: Untrained wait staff, kitchen unable to handle busy hours efficiently.

Grits - Salty and running away from the bowl
Eggs WERE NOT FRESH
Bacon had been sitting in a grease vat
Smoking is allowed right in FRONT OF THE KITCHEN. SMOKING Bad for food.
Pancakes were not cooked
Biscuit tasted like s!@#
Way out of the KC, MO Center City
Bad bad bad

DON'T waste your time. THIS IS NOT A GOOD PLACE TO EAT

The Corner Cafe has been a Riverside legend for decades. After searching the nation for biscuits and gravy as good as Corner Cafe's, I came to realization that there is no rival. Don't order a large plate unless you intend to share! I highly recommend the french toast as well. This place is a must-go if you visit KC.

If you are a connoisseur of biscuits and gravy, try the Corner Cafe. Although there are many other things on the menu, the ability to get the basics right speaks volumes. Their biscuits and gravy are among the best.

My family stopped in for a good breakfast and did not get it. We enjoy steak & eggs for breakfast ocasionally. The steak was tough and and very small for the price, eggs were so-so. Nothing as special as we were lead to believe; along with small portions We left hungry and disappointed. Coffee was good.

I have never had a reason to complain about the food in this resteraunt. The dinner rolls are always fresh, buttery and filling. The cinnamon rolls are sweet heaven. The service is always great. I go back as many times as I get a chance to visit. One person may see something one way while another person has a totally different opinion. So do not be afraid to form your own conclusion. They are AWESOME! Maybe they were just having an off day!

Make sure to visit this restaurant if you live in or are visiting Kansas City, you're sure to add it to your list of regular stops. You will find top-notch "comfort food" like meatloaf, chicken and noodles and fried catfish. All of the food is homemade with care including the salad croutons, which are large and buttery, so good you could snack on them by themselves! The service is always excellent as well, I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I liked this resturant because it was a different kind of place. It has an old country look yet very clean. The food was pretty good. They cost was relatively inexpensive. The rolls are what keep people coming back. They are very popular and are homemade and sold by the dozen. I had fried chicken and it was pretty good as well.

Homemade Chicken & Noodles?? Homemade Tenderloin Sandwiches, biscuits & gravy?? Homemade Dinner Rolls and Desserts?? These are just a few of the wonderful things the Corner Cafe offers.
Their salads are one of my favorite things. Always cold, fresh & crispy!
Alot of people have written about slow service, and long waits. Are we eating at the same place? We've never had a long wait or poor service. Always prompt & friendly! But then, we use our timing skills and hit the restaurant just before or after PEAK busy times..Timing people, timing....
Dobn't forget their new location in Liberty, MO.

I've eaten at the corner since they first opened the old place. It is still my favorite place in KC area. We have lmany people lfrom our Church in St. Joe driving down there for breakfast on a regular basis.

Whenever we head south, we always drive thru Riverside for a meal before continuing out trip.

OK so you might wait a bit, I've never waited over 30 minutes so planning is a good thing to do. The food is great. Excellent service. you really need to be a bit on the hungry side. It's a super family gathering place. Do you like Biscuits and Gravy..I say no more as words can't describe the Large. Medium will be fine from now on.

You get a lot of great food for a low price. My husband and I can have dinner for less than $20 and still both bring home leftovers. The rolls that come with dinner are made fresh and are great. My husband always ask for extras. If you love grandma's home cooking then this is a close second.

I have been going to the corner cafe for many years. In fact, when it was a converted gas station. The pork tenderloin is so big it covers the entire plate. The bisquits and gravy are a risk I'm always willing to take... despite my doctors orders. In fact, when we have family staying over we have a tradition of ordering out the bisquits and gravy for breakfast grand style at home.

We were seated quickly, took awhile for the waitress, but coffee and juice was quick, they kept the coffee cup full. I am used to more hashbrowns (they could of been cooked alittle longer). With the amount of customers in and out, I could see how the hashbrown turnover could be a problem. The coffee was very good, just right, not too strong or weak, had a good taste and hot. I can only compare the food to a place in Grinnell, Ia (West Side Diner) price and qty.

If you're looking for good food at a reasonable price, I would highly recommend this establishment. The waitersses are friendly, the food is always good, and the menu is very diverse for the picky eater. Be prepared to wait for a little while if you walk-in. Just have a hot cinamon roll while you wait. You'll forget about the time you're waiting.

Corner Cafe is the best breakfast in town...by far. Even the expansion to a larger building (built next door) does not diminish the atmosphere. I highly recommend!

After reading the different reviews, I am wondering if we are all talking about the same place. I think this review is for the Riverside Corner cafe. The food is always excellent and LARGE portions! Yes you may have to wait to be seated and some of the servers are a little slow but they have came along way baby! Check out the counter in the back, you can get seated there qucker. They use to be alot smaller but have grown and are still growing. They have just added more seating. Good food is worth the wait. Mom doesn't cook a meal in 5 minutes why should they???

I USUALLY SIT AT THE COUNTER IN THE BACK WHERE THE ACTION IS. I LISTEN TO THE SERVERS/WAITRESS'S AND COOKS KIBITZ, WHAT A GAS!! CUSTOMERS ARE FRIENDLY, TOO, IF YOU CARE TO BE.
THE RESTAURANT IS GOOD HOME COOKING,FAST, CLEAN, AND WELL WORTH THE PRICE. I HAVE NEVER FINISHED A COMPLETE MEAL THERE AND IT'S ALWAYS HOT AND TASTY.
THEIR HOMEMADE DINNER ROLLS ARE GREAT AND SO ARE THE PIES AND CAKES.

I have been going to the Corner long before it moved into its new location, and I can tell you that the food has always been exceptional. I was very hungry the first time I went there(or so I thought) and ordered the large biscuits and gravy. I was shocked to see a very large plate piled high with biscuits covered in home-made sausage gravy. I now order the small, and savor every bite.

This is very simply one of the best places in the KC area for what's now being called comfort food, that which most of us grew up on. Basic food done very well and plentiful. I can't believe that they're not also listed in best breakfast - the biscuits and gravy are excellent and, as most B & G fans know, that's hard to find. The presentations are NOT "to die for" but the food IS!

Your sure to be pleased when eating here! From the spacious parking, the first look around when you walk in the door, to the friendly staff greeting and seating, you will feel like your at home in the country. Filled to the brim with the antiques from the good ole' days, the menu having many selections, your food is served up quick and hot, overfilling the plate. The enviroment is for family and friends alike, and especially seniors to glance back at the way life was growing up. The food is very reasonably priced. Also, unlike alot of restaurants smoking and non-smoking sections are available these are far enough away from eachother, where it will not bug the non-smokers lungs.I would definitly recommend this restaurant for anyone to try. This is a very tidy cafe, and they keep it that way!

This is an excellent place to eat but plan on waiting because it's so popular. You can always call your order in and go pick it up. I recommend there "sticky buns", cinnamon rolls with carmel and pecans.

I am not much on eating out for home cook food, but this place has great food with great prices. Excellent for large families. Their desserts are homemade with huge portions also. Call in advance for carry-out.
