I wish they had another place closer to my home in Northwest Missouri. This place is absolutely phenomenal!! I have eaten here several times over the years and it has always had great food, great service, and not a bad price either. It doesn't matter what I order it is always good. It is homemade and the rolls are amazing,... More

I recently spent three days in Kansas City, MO, working a business conference. I found this amazing little restaurant, the Corner Cafe, in Riverside, MO. It was so good, I went back a second night, and would have gone again if I wasn't flying back home. It has a small, home style feel to it. And, the food is outstanding!!... More

If you are in the mood for county style comfort food this is the place. Other than the cheeseburger I have eaten nearly everything and it cannot be beat. The quality of the food, the prompt service and the low price make it an all around winner in my book. I even order rolls and pies for the holidays. Three... More

Corner Cafe is the best breakfast and comfort food in Kansas City. Great sausage gravy and biscuits, omelets, french toast. The service equals the food and the value is great. Usually very crowded especially on weekends but worth the wait. In the evening Ham and Beans and Tenderloin sandwich are the best. Also Great Fried chicken! Many locals go there... More

We eat here quite often with friends. I love the food because it tastes like Mom made it. My favorites are the fried chicken and the meatloaf. Their rolls are absolutely wonderful and I'm not a big bread eater. Their pies are wonderful as are their cinnamon rolls. We are usually to full to eat desert there, so we take... More

Corner Cafe never disappoints. The food is always delicious and the service is great. A few of my favorites are the omelettes, chicken fried chicken, and the chicken and noodles. You must try their rolls and their Platte County Pie.

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.
