6 Best Brunch Spots in Kansas City


Nothing is better after a long week of work than sleeping in on a Saturday morning and hitting a brunch hot spot hours later than you’d get up during the week. Whether you’re the quick brunch and go type or the drink mimosas for hours type, here are 6 brunch spots that you need to check out in Kansas City:


1. Eggtc.

This brunch spot is packed weekend after weekend. This cozy restaurant has two locations, one a few blocks south of the Plaza and the other in Shawnee. One of their signature dishes is the Eggs Benedict, which comes in two varieties the traditional eggs benedict is an “English muffin, two poached eggs, smoked black oak ham or turkey with hollandaise” or the Eggs Benedict Florentine, “English muffin, two poached eggs, avocado, spinach, tomato with hollandaise.” Either way, you can’t go wrong.  


2. The Farmhouse

Hidden away in Kansas City’s historic River Market neighborhood is this farm-to-table gem. When you eat at The Farmhouse, you can be ensured that you’re getting fresh and local food. Their menu changes with the seasons so be adventurous and try something new. You won’t go wrong with anything at this restaurant.


3. The Westside Local

Located in the Westside neighborhood, The Westside Local offers a “Blunch” on Sundays. Some of our favorites include the Blunch Plate starter, the Grilled Cheese (we like to add the brown sugar bacon), and the veggie hash!


4. Louie’s Wine Dive

This little spot in Overland Park is another “must-eat.” They shine with their creative dishes and bottomless mimosas. They offer a variety of mimosas and brunch specialty drinks, as well as a creative menu. Some can’t-miss items are the Eggs Benedict, the Rise and Shine Flatbread, and the Honey Butter Chicken Sandwich!


5. Happy Gillis Cafe + Hangout

Currently open Thursday – Sunday! Happy Gillis, located in historic Columbus Park, is the perfect combination of local, farm-to-table food in an atmosphere that feels like your friendly neighborhood diner. Be sure to try their breakfast sandwich, and if it’s tomato season – you should definitely to add a slice!


6. Denver Biscuit Company

Denver Biscuit Company shines in, surprise surprise, biscuits. Their biscuit sandwiches are giant, and you can’t go wrong choosing one of the many options available! They also offer a delicious cinnamon roll that can feed an entire table (add the bacon!)
