I live in the area & this place is the real deal. If you like old fashioned comfort food, diner style fare, then look no further!! It reminds my husband of an old truck stop diner he used to go to a lot as a child. They bring you cinnamon rolls as soon as you sit down......this is the reason... More

We attended a Sunday brunch. Get there early, because there is a waiting line. The brunch was terrific, many selections.

Always a good crowd every time I've eaten here. The best cinnamon rolls around and everyone customer gets one for free! I've only had their breakfast, but everything I've had is great! It's in an old historic type building, so don't expect modern and roomy but it's part of the homestyle feel.

Everyone is given the best cinnamon roll when you arrive, for free. The food is fabulous and generous. All friends and family that we have taken there request a repeat visit.

Neighborhood is great for any meal of the day. Breakfast is great. My favorite is biscuits and gravy. Your breakfast comes with complimentary cinnamon rolls! The chicken fried steak is my favorite for dinner. The servers are also great! You can't go wrong here!

Excellent restaurant with complimentary cinnamon rolls. Great menu selection and all our food was excellent, plentiful and with great service at reasonable prices. One should visit the rest rooms to experience the route. The pies looked awesome. An excellent neighborhood cafe, well named.

Quaint little downtown cafe that we found while at a training. It is a definite mom and pop type place complete with tables of elderly gentleman sitting around drinking coffee. They bring free fresh cinnamon rolls to your table so beware if you're dieting. They are hard to resist!! I had beans and ham with warm sweet cornbread. Some of... More

I have always loved this Cafe in Old Downtown Lee's Summit. Great food (one of the few places you can get Yummy Liver & Onions). Breakfast served all day every day. Homemade Pies soooo Good...including rare Gooseberry pie. The gooey Complimentary Cinnamon rolls (one per person) are divine! Nice wait-staff! Well worth checking out!

Thank Julie S
