I've been visiting the Wooden Spoon for breakfast every few weeks for a couple years now. The service is great, the coffee is very good (Roasterie, coffee roasted in Kansas City), and the food is home-style amazing! Owned by a friendly and customer-service oriented couple, they give special attention to using quality ingredients and preparing their food with care. The hash browns are crisp and seasoned; the breakfast casserole is flavorful and filling; and their caramel macchiato pancakes are wow-zowwy. Everything on the menu is good. They make their own pico de gallo from scratch. The menu is rather limited (they only serve breakfast and lunch), but that allows them to concentrate on making every menu item an exceptional taste experience. The dining area is small and seating is limited, so expect to wait on a busy Saturday morning. It's a great place to come for breakfast before class at JCCC across the street or heading to the mall, or good for lunch after class or shopping. In fact, any time you want to start the day off right, go to the Wooden Spoon for coffee, pancakes, and a breakfast burrito! And breakfast casserole. And French toast. And, and, and...

We stopped in for lunch to try it out and loved it. Breakfast is served all day. Three of us ordered breakfast plates and the fourth ordered a sandwich. None of us were disappointed. Food was delicious! Great local place with caring proprietors. We will be back.

Have eaten both breakfast and lunch there. Fast, cooked to order, friendly. Portions are large. Will return.

My husband, teen son and I visited the Wooden Spoon yesterday for breakfast, and were not disappointed! Thank goodness we timed it right, as we were able to get a table for 4 in the small dining area. Expect to be treated by family from the minute you walk in. What great people! We enjoyed the panwich, biscuits & gravy, and a breakfast burrito. Prices are very reasonable, portions are perfect, and everything we had was very tasty. We'll be back!

I consider myself to be a bit of a breakfast snob and this place passed the test with flying colors.
The caramel macchiato pancakes were a sweet way to start the day, the bacon was the perfect salt to go with the sweet, and the coffee was brewed to perfection.
I will definitely be coming back!
