Kansas City Cafe

I went to Kansas City Cafe (16th and Grand) for lunch for the first time today. Had a jerk tenderloin sandwich. Fantastic!! My friend had a seafood sandwich that was also magnificent. The Cafe makes everything from scratch on the premises. Please, please, I hope people try this place. It is the kind of quality, local restaurant that is a great addition to the restaurant scene and needs our strong support. I would truly hate to see it go out of business.

Everything on the menu is $5.99. Open Monday-Friday, 11am to 3pm. The Cafe has its own little parking lot to one side.

Please let me know if any of you have had the same experience there.

(In case you are suspicious, this post in not a plant by the restaurant. I am simply a KC resident who has found a wonderful place and wants to pass on the recommendation.)

  1. I have eaten here several times over the last year (>7) and sincerely hope it stays open. It's a couple of blocks from my office in the crossroads. The food is consistently good, and lunch is amazingly inexpensive. Cream of Mushroom soup is great. Salads superior, I love one with pecans and dry cranberries. Excellent Reuben too. It's my go-to for business lunches. And all this with convenient and free parking! I also urge folks to check it out. It never seems busy, and this is too bad.

    1. It never looks open and this is the first I've ever heard of anyone eating there. Many places that were popular have closed as of late. If this place is still open, despite lack of advertising or looking like they're actively doing business, they must be doing something right.
