Outpost Social Club

Tucked away along Southwest Boulevard is your new favorite breakfast and lunch spot, Outpost Social Club. The unassuming breakfast joint is quaint and easygoing with a full cocktail bar, tons of greenery, and a menu full of your usual breakfast and lunch suspects. All of them are house-made and incredibly delicious. 

When it comes to the biscuits and gravy, the large biscuits are flaky and buttery but stand out with their egg-washed tops sprinkled with a bit of finishing salt, making for a subtle pie crust flavor. The hash browns are the ideal combination of crispy and soft and are seasoned to perfection. 

The coffee bar is simplistic with espresso-based beverages, but craft cocktails are also available such as bloody marys and mimosas. 

The lunch menu consists of fries with chipotle aioli, a smash burger with the option to add a fried egg, and white pizzas topped with roasted garlic, mushrooms, and provolone. 

Outpost Social Club is located at 1000 W 25th St. B, Kansas City, MO 64108.

Parisi Coffee

Parisi Coffee’s Overland Park location is a swanky gem where you can enjoy crafts Italian coffee, or, as the company’s slogan claims—”art from the cup.” The sophisticated atmosphere is paired with high-quality brews that are elevated with simple touches. For example, their espresso plate is served with shards of rich dark chocolate. 

The cold brew shandy is a unique menu offering that incorporates cold brew and vanilla into lemonade. The result is a bright and caffeinated tea-like beverage.

The food menu is simple, with items such as breakfast sandwiches and pastries. Their avocado toast is a must-have, layered first with goat cheese, then smeared with creamy avocado and topped with a drizzle of crunchy chili oil and a bed of arugula. The flavors and textures of the toast are perfectly emphasized with a sprinkle of salt. The common breakfast food succeeds in simplicity and makes for a great elevated coffee shop snack. 

Parisi Coffee is located at 7261 W 80th St., Overland Park, KS 66204. They are open Monday through Sunday from 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
