Best Regards Bakery & Cafe
You Overland Parkers have got it made with this great little find, but I assure you it’s worth the drive from anywhere in the city. Known for their huge selection of grilled cheeses and other sandwiches, they also have fresh salads, soups, and a jaw dropping array of gorgeous desserts. The best part – their lunch special includes a sandwich that changes weekly, a side salad or soup and choice of two desserts for $5.99! That leaves enough for you to take home one of their cinnamon rolls or two.
If delicious Italian food is what you crave, look no further than this unpretentious Westport Road cutie that features daily food specials. Great on the budget, you can enjoy homemade pasta, paninis, salads, pizza and wonderful desserts with most meals $10 or less.
