First time here. Very fun. Three levels of searing with outdoor seating on rooftop. Great pastry/bakery selection & coffee. It’s 25 minutes from home, but we’ll be back just to chill. Also, very clean bathrooms (with hooks, working soap & faucets)!

Love everything! Coffee- delicious People- amazing Environment- tremendous! I would recommend coming In The early morning right when they open to get a more peaceful setting. But they are great so that’s why they’re busy!

It’s not a place for a vegan but for everyone else it is scrumptious. They grind their own flour and bake everything. You can sit and watch them kneading the bread. Variety of pastries, sandwiches and good coffee. I was there at lunch and it...More

This place is a fabulous spot for a coffee, breakfast or lunch. The coffee is some of the best in KC and some great food options from oats, avocado toast and some delicious pastries. Cool open venue over three levels including an open sky deck.

This coffee shop blew us away. The coffee was fantastic, smooth and full of flavor. The shop is three levels with an outdoor patio and fireplace at the top. A truly unique experience!

I came here after a Saturday morning race, recommended by a friend. This building is gigantic! There are multiple floors and a deck, I did not go on, I'll save that for warmer weather. But pastries are supplied by Ibis Bakery which their goods are...More

I’ve been there at least 10 times and they consistently prepare the best cup of coffee served with bread products, sandwiches, eggs, etc of the highest quality. Service is agreeable but you need to wait at times for the coffee but worth waiting for. Seating...More
