The Kaldi’s Coffee downtown has closed

Kaldi’s Coffee

After six years in business, the Kaldi’s Coffee on the edge of the Power and Light District, at 1201 Main, closed for good last Friday, June 28.

“We are fully committed to Kansas City and are currently seeking a new space to be able to provide a full service Kaldi’s experience, including kitchen operations,” a sign on the door says.

The other two Kaldi’s locations in KC, both on the Country Club Plaza, remain open.

Kaldi’s manager Chris Berola tells the Kansas City Business Journal that the regional coffee chain — it currently has 16 stores — is scouting a new location with more kitchen space to accommodate more robust breakfast and lunch menus. The new Kaldi’s won’t necessarily be downtown, though; Berola says they’re looking on both sides of the state line, with an eye to open next year sometime.
