Cozy's Cafe - Overland Park, Kansas
Cozy's Cafe in Overland Park, Kansas is a small family run restaurant which opened in 2009. Breakfast is served all hours, along with an European influenced menu which includes pastas, many paninis and hand formed hamburgers. The owner, Kozeta Kreka, who previously worked at Town Topic in Mission, waits on the tables at lunch time and makes the baklava.
On our first visit, I had a juicy, hand formed half pound cheeseburger with grilled onions and slightly better than average onion rings. Linda ordered the muffuleta (grilled foccacia bread with mortadela salami, provolone cheese, roasted pepper, herbs and hand squeezed lemon juice). She was surprised when it came with a Greek style salad which appears no where on the menu. Both were quite good.
Our second visit was for supper and we both had a daily special of flavorful grilled boneless pork chops, steamed vegetables and a generous helping of mashed potatoes and gravy. This time we also had the baklava, which was good, but not the special treat I had hoped for.
Over the years we have found that Cozy's menu has expanded and subtle changes to the dining room make it feel more warm and comfortable. More recently staff shortages have limited the hours to morning and lunch time.
