This little off the beaten path hole in the wall is very unique but also very good. You must first wait in a long line to order and pay for your food, then try and find a table - good luck as this place is packed but worth the wait. Free coffee is always nice but your not going there... More

After much debate on where we would go for Sunday brunch, ( out of towners).. We happily settled with You Say Tomato. This corner restaurant brings you back in time and is reminiscent of a an old grocer/cafe. Let's skip to the Cinnamon Roll. Wow. I don't write reviews lightly.. Not too sweet, a little tease of salt, no frosting... More

Great recommendation by our Airbnb host. Good, fresh, locally sourced food and relaxed atmosphere. I had a butternut squash quiche, and it was delicious! Came with a slice of fresh watermelon that was perfect! Asked a guy that worked there, maybe the owner or manager, for suggestions on places to visit and he gave us several suggestions. Very friendly, awesome... More

Really fun quirky atmosphere. Fabulous food. Order at the counter and then have a seat, the staff will bring your food to you. Staff is super friendly. When I was there I ended up having a great conversation with the owner. We will definitely make this one of our regular stops when we are in town.

Quirky is a great way to describe this restaurant. Not your typical breakfast offerings but the dishes were well seasoned and the lattes were solid. We'll be back.

Here last Saturday A.M. for breakfast. As always, a broad range of folks, from young to old, and inner KC to the suburbs. All come for the fine food offerings, and excellent Parisi brand coffee. Try it, and enjoy.

This cafe is reminiscent of a '50s diner. Fun decor. The food is great and there are daily changes in addition to the standard fare. I had the chicken salad on a croissant and my husband had the reuben pocket. Both were very good and the prices were not unreasonable. They also have yummy desserts.

Food was great. Lots of variety on the brunch menu and tons of coffee options. Delicious Mocha. Restaurant is really small. Had to wait to sit down after ordering. Food took FOREVER. Once we got seated and started eating experience was better. Ratings: Service: A- Food: A- Atmosphere: B Value: A
