Neighbor's Café

You simply have to love any small-town diner that serves the first cinnamon roll free. Extras are 50 cents each and worth every damn penny. Though it's not much to look at from the outside — inside either, for that matter — Neighbor's Cafe is an institution in downtown Lee's Summit; there's been some kind of family-operated diner in the building since 1950. The members of the Roberts family, its current owners, serve those yeasty rolls, big breakfast platters, hot and cold sandwiches (including the open-faced, extra-large pork tenderloin served on "Texas-sized bread," smothered in cream gravy and sided with mashers and more gravy), and complete dinners. Home-style fried cookin' has never gone out of style in this kitchen, which puts out an impressive whole fried catfish, country-fried steak and a fried pork chop. Neighbor's Café still serves liver and onions (which it claims are "the best in town") and walleye fried, grilled or Cajun-style. Dinners come with a choice of potato, vegetable, apple sauce or fresh fruit, and a hot roll, biscuit or cornbread. Only one meal on the menu costs more than 10 bucks. That's a good Neighbor's policy.
