Can get really crowded quickly and parking is always difficult. Meatloaf, rolls, pie's all very very good but the cinnamon rolls are the very very best! We pick them up especially when we have out of town guests.

Although we rarely go out for breakfast, we decided to try Neighborhood Cafe. Walking into the restaurant, the initial impression is a very rundown dive. The decor is out of date and everything just seems old and rundown. But the fact that the restaurant is crowded draws you in. The menu is quite complete and looks like a lot of... More

Located int he heart of downtown Lee's Summit this place never gets old. We eat here probably a few times a month. I love their breakfast items! It can be a little crowded at breakfast time so be prepared for a small wait and busy wait staff. We usually get seated right away for dinner there even on the weekend.... More

My husband and I tried this restaurant based on the reviews and we were very disappointed. There were a lot of locals having coffee and visiting, so we were excited to try it! Unfortunately, the omelettes were flat and filled with lunch meat ham and over-browned sausage. We both follow a paleo lifestyle and found it hard to find anything... More

Best cinnamon rolls ever. Every time my staff has a treat day at work they beg me to get Neighbors Cafe cinnamon rolls.

I took my grandson for breakfast last Saturday. Almost every table was taken. That's a good sign! We loved the cinnamon roll that was put on our table almost as soon as we came in. We were going to order two pancakes for our grandson. The waitress warned us that they are big, plate size. So we ordered one. Perfect!... More

Yes, this place is packed, especially in the mornings, but for good reason - it's GOOD! The wait is usually manageable anyway, plus there's an outdoor area where you can sit/stand to wait when it's nice out. When you are seated, each person at the table is given their own cinnamon roll (like how chips and salsa are customary when... More

I took my family to this restaurant and it was extremely good! I have been to this business on several other occasions and it has never let me down. As the other commenters have said, the homemade (free) cinnamon rolls are very fresh and tasty. As soon as you sit down to the table, the wait staff give you the... More

Neighborhood Cafe offers a small home-town restaurant feel. Our family loves ordering off the breakfast menu all day long. They bring cinnamon rolls at the end of our meal! Yum!
