Really enjoy the energy and atmosphere here. Only been here for breakfast and have had the biscuits and sausage gravy each time. Their lattes are great as well. Recommend if you are in the neighborhood.

Stopped in while driving through Kansas City and this was a great place! Coffee was very well made and the pastries were tasty! They have one made with almond and oat flour that’s gluten free, although not safe from cross contamination, as they are a...More
