In recent years, the population of sidewalk dining venues has increased exponentially in Kansas City. Yet The Classic Cup was still able to be the City’s Best outdoor dining venue.
With a front patio and back deck providing a prime view for people watching, the Classic Cup provides an al fresco dining experience hard to match elsewhere. This alluring ambiance, combined with an almost twenty five-year history on the Plaza, has made dining outdoors at the Classic Cup a cherished part of local customs for many Kansas Citians.

“It’s become generational,” explains Stephen Molloy, partner at the cafe since 1994. “I’ve watched kids grow up, come back through and go, ‘Oh my gosh, I remember I was here when I was ten and now I’ve graduated college.’” When the weather permits, Classic Cup’s patios will no doubt fill with such loyal customers, many of which can be found sipping on the restaurant’s famous sangria or a fresh brew. classiccup.com
