4th Street Cafe - Edwardsville, Kansas
The 4th Street Cafe in Edwardsville, Kansas just opened in 2016, but this neat, little stone building first held a cafe in the 1930s. Everything is made fresh and they have a long menu, predominantly of interesting sandwiches. It is in a narrow building next to the post office.
Blackboards line one wall of the dining room, covered with the menu. Kelly, the owner, said he has several more pages of menu items which doesn't fit on that big board. This restaurant gets high points for atmosphere and medium high points for the food. All of the sandwiches come with fresh cut French fires and the prices are pretty reasonable, starting at $4,95 for a Fried Baloney Sandwich. The bulk of the sandwiches are priced from $5.50 and $9.
We have enjoyed the many sandwiches we have tried and well as chicken tenders. The fries are good, but I need to remember to ask for them to be a little more crispy the next time we eat there. They encourage requests for changes in their sandwiches and you can get double the meat for $1.99.
We have dined at 4th Street Cafe three times. Two of those times the owner was there and the experience was better those times.
