Kansas City Breakfast

We're headed there this weekend to hang out and get some bbq, and I'm having a tough time finding the must-hit breakfast spot. We're staying in the Plaza area, and we'd likely be looking to go on Sunday. Where do we go?

For the record, we know we're going to Arthur Bryant's one night (non-negotiable, as we've been there a few times before) and we're not sure about the other night. Probably either Jack Stack or Gates.

  1. Bluestem has one of the best brunches in town on Sundays. And it isn't that far from the Plaza

    1. If you have a car, please think about LC's in place of Gates or Jack Stack. It's a straight shot east from the Plaza on 47th / Blue Parkway.
      Bluestem is a great brunch suggestion, but if you really want breakfast the Classic Cup on the Plaza is very good and Eggctr ( south of the Plaza at 51st & Main) is a fine choice.

        Just don't get a waffle at Eggctr. Whenever I do, I'm served ten minutes later than the rest of my party, and frequently it's cold. Very strange quirk, as they do egg dishes and lunch items well. Our server has always been apologetic, quick with the coffee refills while I wait, etc. but that kitchen has an issue with the waffle iron.

        I'd also like to give Classic Cookie on Gregory Blvd. a mention for breakfast. It's a bit of a drive, but if you don't need fancy digs, the food is very good. Homestyle, with attentive service.

      2. Bristol in the Power and Light District now has brunch.
        Jerry's Woodsweather Cafe would be a good bet for breakfast

          You Sat Tomato on Holmes and ???? twentysomething? is unique. Small place - they make everything from scratch down to the bread, etc. Look it up.

        2. Have the best of both worlds. On the weekend RJ's Bob-Be-Que Shack serves breakfast. I''m not a breakfast person, but it has a good reputation.
