5 Best Brunches in Kansas City to Try Now

Something beautiful happens during the weekends between the wee hours of sunrise and lazy afternoons.

It’s called brunch and you can’t deny counting down the days until you meet up with friends over bottomless mimosas. It’s the little things in life that matter, so we assembled a few favorites, old and new, for your dining pleasure.

1. Ça Va

Just because it’s the best place to grab a glass of champagne doesn’t mean it can’t compete with the brunch crowd. After the bar introduced a brunch menu last week, we’re excited to nibble on a croque madame or meat-free quiche. Enjoy on Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and keep coming back because the brunch menu is set to change often.

2. Voltaire

Another day, another new brunch offering. Down in the West Bottoms, Voltaire changed its usual evening-only hours to offer an 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. brunch menu. Make reservations quick because we’re sure the unique eggs Benedict that features baby arugula, sliced tomato and yellow pepper hollandaise is sure to draw in a crowd.

3. Beer Kitchen

An oldie but a goodie—from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. head on over to Westport to enjoy an array of brunch treats. The menu is never ending but a little bird told us you’ve got to try the drunken doughnuts to start and anything else you order will be heavenly.

4. Aixois

C’est parfait! Pretend you’re in Paris this Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with the French-inspired brunch menu at Aixois. Dine on the patio with your café au lait in hand and don’t forget a side of fresh fruit and a crepe au nutella to satisfy your late morning sweet tooth.

5. Magnolia’s Bistro

Grab your friends on Saturday or Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and get a little southern hospitality and comfort food for your next brunch outing. We’re dying to try the Nutter Butter French toast complete with a side of turkey sausage, ham or smoked pepper bacon.
