Cinnamon Roll at The Corner Cafe
By Sarah Gish and Andrea Shores
Who doesn’t like cinnamon rolls? The classic breakfast pastries magically transform common ingredients — flour, yeast, butter, sugar, cinnamon — into soft, warm swirls of heaven.
The Corner Cafe makes some of the softest and largest cinnamon rolls in the Kansas City area. They’re baked close together in a deep pan, which prevents the outside from forming a hard crust. The outer swirl is just as soft, light and feathery as the center of these plate-sized rolls, which cost $3.29 each and are served with a serrated knife and fork.
The locally owned chain has locations at 4541 NW Gateway Ave. in Riverside, 8301 N. Flintock Road in Liberty and 4215 S. Little Blue Parkway in Independence. — S.G.
