Therefore, Fat City, is proud to present the five best places to have breakfast for dinner, for those moments when we want pancakes in the nighttime.
5. Roxanne's Cafe (6264 Lewis, Suite 104, in Parkville) — This Cowboy-themed breakfast and lunch spot knows how to make a hot cake. The cinnamon rolls are as enormous as you might expect (somewhere between a salad and dinner plate). And they dish out a whole bunch of biscuits and gravy every day.
4. Beer Kitchen (435 Westport Road) — The Westport restaurant serves up "breakfast anytime" with three egg dishes that are equally tempting. The highlight is likely the eight-hour corned-beef hash with two fried eggs on Farm to Market swirled rye.
3. Hayes Hamburger(2502 NE Vivion Rd.) — Get the hash browns well done, a giant stack of toast and a big old plate of eggs. You're not a long-haul trucker, but that doesn't mean you can't eat like one at the 24-hour diner counter.
2. Neighbor's Cafe (104 SE Third St., in Lee's Summit) — Open until 8 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday, this spot serves up classic, well-made diner staples. This is scrape-your-plate breakfast — pancakes, biscuits and gravy or pie made from scratch.
1. Simply Breakfast (4120 Pennsylvania) — Sunset may be the magic hour, but sunrise is usually a horror show. Second dinner and first dinner are a lot more pleasant at this Westport eatery. They do one thing: breakfast. And they do it very well. On Saturdays and Sundays between midnight and 4 a.m., you can eat like you're a pregnant lady — diving into their breakfast burrito (a wicked concoction of hash browns and a Western omelet) or the breakfast sandwich, which comes inside an appropriately named "giant biscuit."
