Downtown. The heart. Where the City of Lee’s Summit began more than 150 years ago as the Town of Strother.
Now a thriving and bustling area of development, a central, focal point of business, a hub of artistic and cultural activity, Downtown Lee’s Summit is home to more than 150 businesses.
One of the oldest residing right here at 104 SE Third Street – home of Neighborhood Café and the famous cinnamon rolls!
Before there were 93,000 people in Lee’s Summit; before we were a town of 65+ square miles, we were downtown Lee’s Summit. A few blocks, dirt roads and miles of opportunity in front of us.
This building was originally a wagon repair structure in the early 1900’s, constructed as one of the first “strip” buildings in the downtown area and home to four businesses at the time.
Over time, the place where tens of thousands of families and diners have come to visit the re-creation of owners Tony and Kelly (and Abram, and Max, and the baby on the way!)
