I've been there three times now, and in always impressed with the kind waitresses. They are all older women that I get a strong grandmotherly feel from. I must also say that I've always been hungover when I ate there. Service is gracious, atmosphere is like an old fashioned mom+pop diner, complete with the cake and pie displays on the... More

OLD 56 Family Restraurant is our favorite breakfast location. They have recently updated the inside of the restaurant. The food and service are good but it is a busy place on the weekends so there may be a wait.

Service was excellent - the waitstaff was quick to make sure drinks were refilled and dishes were cleared away. Food was good. I had scrembled eggs and sausage, toast and hashbrowns - my wife had scrambled eggs and ham with a half order of biscuits and gravy. The only minor complaint was that the biscuit was somewhat dry. Excellent otherwise.

Guy Fieri needs to visit this place! A classic diner in every aspect. It was packed on a Sunday morning, but we got right in and service was quick and friendly. Our waitress commented that food wasn't coming out of the kitchen very quickly, but it was on par with everything else so when they're on, I suspect it comes... More

The café has been an Olathe fixture for decades. It's a bit of a throwback to the old days and that is a good thing. Service is friendly and good, the menu has a good variety, and it is a comfortable place to be.

If you want a quality cafe experience with great decor, a killer menu, and outstanding service, this is it. Go out of your way and have some fun! I had the Denver omelet and thinking of going back in the morning to get another!

been here a number of times and it is always home cooked meals, nice service - formica tables and cheap prices. Been here with golf buddies and enjoyed the service and food quality each time.

The food is great, the coffee is the best I have ever had at a restaurant! Everyone there is so nice. You may have to wait but the longest we had to wait for a table on a Sunday morning after church was 15 mins for a party of 7! This is a place that knows how to take care... More

Good grub, local crowd, casual dining. Breakfast always served. Dinner specials available. The BLT with a baked potato is excellent. Save room for a piece of pie.
