A good cup of coffee or drink. There are many seasonal drinks available at their bar. Friendly staff. Drive-thrus are convenient but be prepared for a 10-15 minute wait. The iced Honeycomb is my recommendation.

What Others Are Saying

Wonderful coffee shop, great employees, and excellent coffee! A large Oaxaca drip made with fresh Mexican beans was smooth, light, and slightly chocolatey. City Market was lively and bustling on a busy Sunday morning. If you ask for honey with your coffee, you can get it. Tip these hardworking Java masters!

Coffee tumbling out of the roaster into the cooling tray is truly satisfying to the senses. Experience it close-up from our two San Franciscan drum roasters. See, smell, hear and taste the coffee from our second floor seating that adjoins the roasting area. Coffee and bread bring people together. Messenger cafe brings messenger coffee and ibis bakery together. Come find your seat at the table.

What Others Are Saying

I think it's the best coffee shop in MCI. Three stories of bakery, roaster, and coffee shop with a cool rooftop patio. The syrups, too, are made on site. A lavender latte with oak milk, a goat cheese croissant, and the ambiance were all top notch. They were roasting a new batch of coffee at one point, and the smell was incredible! Come and spend some time here. It will not disappoint you.

I just like The Roasterie. I usually order coffee when I go, but this time I'm in the mood for tea. I ordered hot cinnamon tea using the mobile app, which was exactly what I needed to keep me warm in the first cold days of fall. The cafe was very clean, and when I walked through the door, my drink was ready. Good job

Breakfast at this restaurant is great! There is a Starbucks here that offers not only good coffee but also decent breakfast items, such as breakfast burritos and sandwiches. Yogurt whipped to perfection! Sorry, my picture doesn't do my words justice, I guess I was too hungry.

Crows Coffee South Plaza

Your Neighborhood Coffee Shop.

304 E 51st St, Kansas City, MO 64112, USA

Crows Coffee is a neighborhood coffee shop with three locations in Kansas City, MO. Crows expanded to Waldo and Red Bridge, and quickly became an integral part of each community. A bakery, The Baked Crow, operates out of the Waldo space, and provides fresh pastries and breakfast burritos for all three locations — which also serve beer and wine, in addition to espresso, coffee, tea, and specialty drinks.

What Others Are Saying

Following a long hiatus, thanks to covid, I stopped by Crows today and found their "Read Me" sign affixed to the door, with a list of requirements and protocols. In addition, I noticed that they don't have as many seating options (if any) as a typical coffee shop, which made the place feel more somber than a regular coffee shop to me. I understand that we all have to do what we have to do. . . . Live and let live kinda thing. Instead, I went somewhere else. . . . In Brookside, not far from downtown, there was a coffee shop-like atmosphere: more open, more seating, and more dynamic. Also, good coffee! In a few months, maybe I'll stop by Crows again. . . .

Recently visited the shop and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it had a coffee-shop feel. Thankfully, there was no heavy-handed post-covid sentiment. I liked the place because it was open, lively, and friendly--and the coffee was good, too--not to mention a nice selection of pastries. It was a pleasant experience from beginning to end.

An espresso-centric slow bar located in the Waldo neighborhood of South Kansas City. Second Best Coffee, at its core, is a commitment to relentless improvement.

What Others Are Saying

Starbucks is my favorite, but I've begun to explore local coffee shops. I chose the black coffee on my first visit to Second Best Coffee. Second Best's Columbian coffee is 1000% better than Starbucks' black coffee. There is no burnt taste or bitterness (which I sometimes like). Everything went smoothly! I'm eager to try their other concoctions.
