Last year I had the pleasure of visiting Kansas City, Missouri. My friend Tim took a group of us to The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. There was so much to see and we had limited time, I would love to go back and visit again. One of my favorite areas was the one containing South and Southeast Asian art. I loved this sculpture in particular.

This past week I had the pleasure of exploring Kansas City, Missouri while attending GRL 2016. It is a beautiful city with so many things to do. On the first full day that I arrived, a group of us ventured to the City market. In the back corner there is a cool little coffee shop called City Market. It is small and filled with the wonderful aroma of their on site roasted coffees. They also serve pastries and assorted breakfast foods. I went there several times while visiting Kansas City and it was always busy.
We took the streetcar from our hotel to the market. One of the first things I noticed about the market area was it is very clean and well organized. Vendors were setting up for the day on the first morning. We stopped by a Mediterranean grocery and the fragrances were amazing. Then I found City Market Coffee House
One of the local customers suggested the Cubano coffee or a macchiato. I tried the Cubano. It was rich and delicious.
Overall it was a very enjoyable place to visit. There is some seating inside, with a outside patio behind the shop and seating along the walk way in front, facing the market. I suspect that the weekends are the busiest and be prepared to wait. I have not included a link to their website. When I try to go to the site , I get a warning. You may have better luck. Google is a wonderful thing. 😉
When you visit Kansas City, be sure to take the street car to City Market, It is a fun experience and the ride is free. The weekends have local artisans, music, and many restaurants to explore. Be sure to grab a cup of your favorite brew and explore.
