This post is sponsored by The Roasterie, Kansas City’s coffee company since 1993.

We love coffee and even more than that, we love local coffee! The Roasterie has our favorite seasonal flavors and drinks, and great locations all around the metro for meeting friends, working or just enjoying a quiet space. Find out which one is best for you to get your caffeine fix!


The Roasterie Cafe in Brookside is nestled on the corner of the quaint Brookside shops. It is the classic community staple where you’ll find a mix of moms with tots, students and entrepreneurs. With two patios, this is the perfect spot to enjoy your drink of choice when the weather in Kansas City is cooperating. The Roasterie’s new grab n go food selections came in handy as I hadn’t eaten lunch. I enjoyed the chicken bacon and kale Caesar wrap and sipped on the Brookside Bob, a delicious coffee with hints of chocolate minty goodness.

This location is great to stop in while visiting the Brookside shops, enjoying the patio with friends and quiet place to get away.

The Factory

The iconic headquarters that every Kansas Citian needs to visit at least once. The smell of coffee lures you in and you know you’re in the right spot when you find The Plane! The Factory is home to the canning and production line, a cafe and a marketplace to make sure your home is always stocked with Roasterie coffee and merch. The Factory offers tours and classes and is a great place to spend a day in Kansas City. With large tables and plenty of parking, this is a great spot for a team meeting or small get together with friends. I asked the barista to surprise me with her favorite beverage. She chose a signature drink, The Sweet Mocha Madness, which was like drinking a dessert with a sweet and velveetys finish. This location also has a very convenient drive-thru if you just need a quick on the go pick me up!

This location is great to get a behind the scenes look at how coffee is produced, perfect for coffee connoisseurs to enjoy the day and group meetings.


The Roasterie Café in Leawood is located in the heart of Town Center Crossing and is the perfect place to refuel when you’re out shopping and running errands. The front of the cafe is set up well for socializing with friends and your kiddos, while the back of the cafe feels more secluded and is a great place to crank out some work. The staff is always exceptional and is happy to answer any questions or give any recommendations. The Roasterie’s year-round selections are excellent but if you don’t try out of their seasonal offerings you’re really missing out. My most recent beverage from there was the Chai-der Cider and it was the perfect spicy and sweet combination of chai with steamed Louisburg Apple Cider. Yum!
This location is great for working, shopping trips, day dates and visiting with friends.


The Woodside Cafe is located in Woodside Village near KU Med. Its hip, modern and stylish and fits right in with the area shops. With plenty of parking, it is the perfect place to stop in for a quick drink or get work done while you enjoy the beautiful aesthetic. The light fixtures and murals were just as enjoyable as my Honeycomb latte featuring local honey and hints of vanilla.

This location is perfect to stop in after shopping on the Plaza, before heading to KU med or while exploring the neighborhoods.



The Children’s Mercy Cafe

The Roasterie Cafe at Children’s Mercy Hospital is located inside the hospital lobby.  The cafe can be accessed from anywhere on the Adele Hall Campus without having to leave the hospital. Down to the very design, this Children’s Mercy Hospital location has kept even its tiniest customers in mind with children size chairs and tables and with its location next to a fully fenced-in outside seating area where you can enjoy your coffee and hot chocolate in the fresh air.

The CMH Cafe boasts a signature drink called the “Hospital Hill”. It includes locally sourced honey, cinnamon, and espresso.
