Cafe
“Neighborhood: Lees Summit This is a little bit of a drive, located in Lees Summit. If you can make it out there, it is completely worth it! Not only does Post roast the best coffee we have ever had, but their space is beautiful, with plenty of seating if you want to take the morning to work or read or meet with a friend. They also have delicious food options from local bakeries as well as made in house! If you can’t make to Lees Summit, you can still buy some beans or roasted coffee elsewhere (not to mention there are freshly roasted beans here in the kitchen!). Post owns a shop called Goat Hill that is so cute and located in the Westside, and many local bakeries and shops brew Post Coffee. Bonus: This shop is owned by our close friends. So we are bias, but it is the best coffee regardless. ”

“Cinnamon rolls. Really-need we say more? Neighborhood Cafe always greets you with fresh homemade cinnamon rolls right at your table before you order. A Denver Omelette is Liesl’s favorite and Harlen always orders the Breakfast Burrito. The kiddos share a stack of pancakes and everybody leaves happy. ”
