Mary Lee’s Café
710 West 20th Street
Joplin, MO 64804

Welcome to Mary Lee’s Café in Joplin. This is one of the old school, true diners from days of long ago. This is just like sitting at your grandmother’s table where you get your plate full, your belly full and your ears full from the gossip being passed around. Enter as a stranger, hear all the town talk, and enjoy the best omelets ever and a wide variety to boot—eggs, bacon, sausage, French toast, and biscuits with a side order of gravy. What more would you want? The portions are so large you can fill your tummy and have enough left over for an afternoon snack. Then there is lunch with fried chicken steak so tender it just about melts on the plate. Don’t forget to try the Reuben. Everything here is made to order.
Monday–Saturday: 6:00 am to 1:30 pm
Sunday: 6:30 am to 1:30 pm
