“What a fun place!”
Reviewed 17 May 2013

This is pretty much a lunch-only place, but very much worth visiting. They have a neat wine/gift shop, and the lunch menu has quite a few tasty, creative options. Very reasonably priced. There is a stone-lined wine cellar downstairs where you can eat your meal, as well as a porch outside, or an eclectic room in the back that is furnished with shabby-chic tables and chairs. A great experience.

“Welcoming Willow”
Reviewed 15 April 2013

We were staying at the Elms and found this quaint shop. Cute items for purchase. The have the largest collection of MO wines for sampling which we did...they let you purchase a bottle and take downstairs to have w/ your lunch. Lunch was delicious and there was live music....and our bottle of yummy MO wine. Fantastic!

“Nice in town alternative to out of town wineries”
Reviewed 26 March 2013

A local suggested this place rather than driving 10-15 min to local wineries. The Mercantile was having a wine tasting and live music in the lower level. We had a great time, enjoyed the wines featured and bought an assorted case for our wine racks at home. Go.

“Fabulous Find in Excelsior Springs”
Reviewed 3 January 2013

We stopped in on the Sunday before New Years Eve to take a look around and ended up having a wine tasting and lunch.

The owners, Jim and Daphne are delightful and were very knowledgeable on all the Missouri wines they carry. We ended up buying four bottles to restock our wine fridge.

We decided to enjoy lunch after looking at the menu. I highly recommend the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato basil soup. We will definitely be returning to enjoy other menu items!
