Need to stop for breakfast or lunch in downtown Kansas City? Head over to Mildred’s. There are two locations located in the crossroads art district and the historic 9th street district.

Established in Downtown Overland Park, Mildred’s has been a staple in the local cafe scene for over 25 years. What started in the mid 1990’s as a simple “Ma & Pa” has grown into one of the most popular breakfast and lunch establishments in the downtown area.With an abundant variety of scratch made baked goods, extensive specialty coffee and espresso bar, notably delicious sandwiches, salads and soups, Mildred’s has all your bases covered. The “Standard Breakfast Sandwich” is known to many as being the ultimate breakfast sandwich in the city.”

I went with the breakfast hash, mimosa, and a chai latte to go. I am obsessed with chai tea lattes. The drink is a staple part of my diet. Anyone else out there who is a fan of chai; I suggest Mildred’s. The menus of both locations contain food and beverages that can be found online, so you can see what other items might interest you.

Finally, the building and decor of the restaurant was fantastic. I loved the aesthetic and colors. It definitely has a downtown restaurant vibe that could cater to a variety of customers. I went to the historic 9th street location, and appreciated the continuation of the art deco style seen throughout the district in the building, windows, and tiles. It also had a loft or warehouse ceiling that tends to be in downtown buildings.

Make sure you visit one of the Mildred’s locations for either a quick bite or a nice sit down breakfast or lunch in Kansas City!
