Everything about You Say Tomato's approach to food is modest, except the food itself. YST buys local, promotes local and delivers what we feel is some of KC's most genuine and delicious breakfast food. Breakfast/brunch is available every day of the week, including Saturdays and Sundays starting at 8am.
So maybe you and your fellow brunchers had very different nights. Some need donut holes and Bloody Marys while some want a meal crafted by, say, a James Beard Award-winning chef. Celina Tio's Julian's got the whole crew covered with a diverse menu of comfort and refinement, plus a colorful array of brunch cocktails…including bottomless mimosas.
If beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy, then Beer Kitchen the supreme evidence. This menu makes a hangover feel like a reward with a smorgasbord of comfort food that is actually prepared with sophistication and quality ingredients. Whether you're hungry or thirsty, or looking for hearty or healthy, there's something for everyone at Beer Kitchen (because God loves us all).
Bluestem is known for its romantic setting and five-course dinners, but on Sunday mornings it serves some of the best, and most artistic, breakfast dishes in town. The Bluestem french toast and eggs benedict are our brunch favorites.
These guys don't have any trouble filling every seat in the house on Saturday and Sunday mornings. The collage of picture frames and mismatching chairs seem to have captured the authentic personality that people have come to love at Happy Gillis. Breakfast favorites include the breakfast sandwich and their all-famous biscuits and gravy.
12 Baltimore is the award-winning restaurant located in downtown's historic Hotel Phillips. It can easily be overlooked as a hotel bar, but 12 Baltimore has earned major nods from KC's culinary enthusiasts. Executive Chef Frank Lalumia won the Golden Fork award at Taste of Kansas City 2015, bringing that trophy to the hotel kitchen two years in a row.
Genessee Royal is a brave little gas station in the stockyards in West Bottoms that has made a serious mark on the KC food scene. Take a trip to Yelp and you will find dozens of raving fans talking about everything from their waffles with mixed berries and maple syrup to the corned beef hash.
Blue Bird Bistro is a classic. Their breakfast has some amazingly diverse options, and we have yet to find one that we don't like.
Farmhouse is all about locally sourced foods, and when you get your brunch menu you will see a list of local farmers that contributed to that day's ingredients. Farmhouse has got all of the morning staples, but they also have some items that branch out a little, like the Scotch eggs with quail, lamb sausage and veggie benedict. Farmhouse is located right across the street from the City Market and it makes a perfect spot to land after you've claimed your market goods.
The Corner Restaurant is a makeover story. Their location on Westport Road and Broadway was a favorite in the 1980s but slowly lost vision and closed in 2010. In early 2013, the iconic spot was re-opened with a brand new imagination. It still has favorites like biscuits and gravy, but it now sources its ingredients from local farms and has bold new dishes like Prosciutto Hash, with purple potatoes and a duck egg.
Succotash is a bright and lively destination that consistently turns visitors into enthusiasts. Their selection includes lots of breakfast favorites like salmon benedict and some seriously good french toast. They've also got a fresh juice bar and serve local Oddly Correct coffee.
Eggtc. is everything. They've got fresh, fine, sweet, savory, gourmet and even delivery. We like Eggtc. because it's a sunny spot to start a day of work, or weekend homework, with free Wi-Fi and a coffee - or a cocktail, depending on how important the work.
Room 39 gets big points for its intimate setting, famous quiches and hazelnut maple syrup. Founders Andrew Sloan and Ted Habiger often change the menu to feature the local fruits and vegetables that are in season.
WCB is a consistent favorite among midtown and Westport dwellers for its happy hour and classic lunch/dinner items. On Saturday and Sunday, its brunch takes things to another level. Brunch runs Saturday and Sunday from 10:30 AM until 4 PM and includes all sorts of delicious options like brioche french toast with lavender cream or house made biscuits & gravy. As an added perk, WCB includes a free cocktail (mimosa, bellini or bloody mary), tea or coffee with any breakfast entree.
Chez Elle is a concept that is completely unique to to the Kansas City food scene. Its entire menu is made up of sweet and savory crepes of all varieties. The breakfast options include, bacon, ham and eggs or spicy chorizo and seasoned potatoes. It's located in Kansas City Westside and is a perfect place to stop in for breakfast after a trip to Little Freshie.
Harvey's is located right in the dead center of the Union Station and opens bright and early every morning to serve up a really unique breakfast experience. While some breakfast buffets compromise quality for quantity, Harvey's serves nothing but quality. Seasonal veggies, smoked salmon and brown sugar glazed ham are great first-plate options.
