Eat: You Say Tomato

Enjoyed a great lunch yesterday with my good friend Lynn at a restaurant I've never been to - or even heard of ... You Say Tomato, 2801 Holmes in Kansas City - right by Hallmark.

The place doesn't look like much from the street - I couldn't even find a good sign to photograph. But I love little hidden gems like this - and, in my experience, the food is usually amazing when all the money isn't spent on overhead and decor.

Right again! Not much to look at from the street, but my food was so good - a yummy sweet potato quiche (with other veggies I'm not sure of) and a small Greek salad. Delish!

Today's specials, just to give you a taste of what else they have to offer, include:
  • Panini - Mufaletta with mortadella, salami, ham, giardiniera, parmesan
  • Chicken Pot Pie
  • Meatloaf Sandwich - with bacon, mushrooms and swiss
  • Breakfast Flatty - scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, country gravy and cheddar

Plus the interior was warm and inviting. An eclectic mix of tables and chairs (thrift store finds I'm sure) and freshly-baked treats made for a very homey atmosphere.

I hope you're able to try You Say Tomato soon. I believe they're only open for breakfast and lunch - 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for Sunday brunch.

I'm ready to go back!
