6 Great Places to Buy Coffee in Kansas City


Barista Serving Latte

For a good cup of joe in Kansas City, try one of these fresh, local brews.

Oddly Correct Coffee Bar

This rustic, brick-lined coffee bar serves its own line of “freaky good” coffee, tea, and espresso to DJ music—with 3 new coffees weekly, including flavors like Space Monkey and Yellow Bourbon. Epicurious magazine rates it one of “America’s 25 Best Coffee Shops,” calling it the “punk-rock older brother” of the coffee world.

Parisi Artisan Coffee

Joe and Sal Paris began roasting coffee in 2006, inspired by the Italian espresso of their Sicilian grandmother. They opened their first café in 2011 with one goal: to achieve Arte Della Tazza, or “Art from the Cup.” Try the Bravissimo Blend, the Italian Blend, or the Espresso Parisi (for a little more kick) at Park Place in Leawood or Union Station.

Thou Mayest Coffee Shop and Cocktail Bar

This local coffee shop actually roasts its own beans—and serves both coffee and cocktails at its quirky Crossroads Art District location. Choose from fun flavors like Boldly Go, Wild Child, Alter Ego, and Laid-Back.

The Roasterie

This company makes serious coffee—1 million pounds per year, of which 80% is consumed in Kansas City. Take a free daily tour of their local factory, or visit one of its three cafes (Brookside, Leawood, or downtown Kansas City). Founded 23 years ago by Danny O’Neill, they also make their own fresh hot and iced teas. Try the Total Eclipse Dark Coffee Blend or the Christopher Elbow Chocolate Coffee Blend.

Filling Station Coffee Garage

Enjoy a Black Bean Burger or Killer Veggie Wrap with your coffee or fresh-squeezed juice (Ruby Slipper beet juice and Hawaii Trio pineapple juice are standouts). Here, you can order your coffee several ways: au lait, macchiato, Gibralter, toddy, or con panna (with coconut milk ice-cream and espresso). Three locations serve Westport, Overland Park, and midtown.

Hi Hat Coffee

Tucked into a tiny brick house in Westwood Hills, you can sit on Hi Hat’s patio to sip your tasty Almond Joy Latte, Bee High, or Aztec Hot Cocoa. On a hot day, the E-Crush blends frozen espresso with Ghirardelli chocolate syrup. Recently named “Best Coffee House in Kansas City” by The Pitch.
