“Terrific service and great coffee”
Review of McLain’s Bakery

McLain’s Bakery
Ranked #9 of 30 Bakeries in Kansas City

Description: A Kansas City tradition (since 1945), McLain's Bakery has been making the highest quality pastries, cookies, cakes and breads for the past 70 years. Come on in for one of your old favorites, whether it's our famous chocolate cup cookies, a fruit danish, or a coffee cake.

Stopped in to McLain's briefly today for a coffee. The baked goods are amazing and the coffee is terrific, but what I really like is the friendly staff. I only come here a couple of times per month when I'm in KC for business...but this is definitely my go-to place for coffee and baked awesomeness in this area.

Brought my niece “McLain” and my daughter to this bakery and we were not disappointed. We went on a Sunday around 10 am and was glad we got there when we did. There wasn’t a line and we were able to find a table quickly. Seating is limited. The people were friendly, the food was fresh and delicious, and the peanut butter bites were amazing! Hope to get to visit here again!

The best Chocolate Cup cookies still!!!!!! I had to fly back to New York with two dozen to start, wishing I could find a baker that knows the secret to these delicious favorites!

Wife and I ate here for breakfast. Wife had biscuits and gravy and I had sweet potato hash and ham. Both were delicious. Also had iced coffee which was prepared just right. Inside the bakery they use commercial bakery mixer components in the light fixtures. You can watch the food preparation inside or sit outside and enjoy your decadent selection.

I regularly go to Lamar's (Johnson Drive) - also one time I went in to get a large box of 'holes' for a celebration of a nurse award at Children's Mercy, and when I told them, they would not let me pay for the box (Main Street Location)! I love when Kansas Citians take care of KC- THe hometown pride made me forever loyal!
