What happened to Delaware Cafe (KC)?

Does anyone know what happened to Delaware Cafe? (Located just west of City Market in Kansas City.) There is a posted sign saying the place is closed for the holidays, but the sign has been there for about a month and a half.

    1. Delaware Cafe closed at the beginning of the year. They closed on New Years Day and that was the last day of operation. The executive chef now works at Justus Drug Store in Smithville. Delaware Cafe couldn't get it together. The owners probably thought running a restaurant was more novelty and didn't understand how much you had to put into it. Oh, well. Food was good while it lasted.

      1. The food was indeed good but, the place was managed poorly and the service was a joke.

          The farmhouse is now in this spot and has nothing to do w/the previous owners, so here's hoping...

            I've been hearing some great things about the Farmhouse. Currently they're only open during the weekday for lunch. Going into the fall, they are planning on opening up for dinners throughout the week and brunches on the weekend. Should be interesting to see how they do.
