This past Labor Day weekend I found myself in Kansas City on Sunday morning with my husband and some KC-savvy friends. My friend Sarah directed all of us to a cute little eatery she had recently tried called The Farmhouse in Kansas City, MO. This restaurant, located in the river market area (and in walking distance from the City Market), uses ingredients produced or raised on local farms.
The Farmhouse has a uniquely rustic charm. The furniture is dark and sophisticated, the artwork is vibrant and quirky (there were colorful roosters and origami cranes nesting in an overhead branch fixture) and the atmosphere is fun and entertaining. Our server had a bubbly personality, which made the experience all the more fun, and coffee was served in an individual French press.
The brunch menu made my mouth water. There were so many options. Ultimately I decided to order their French toast with peaches and berries, just so long as the husband ordered the Farm Egg Omelet, made with Gruyere, bacon and spinach. We split both our dishes. It was the perfect medley of savory and sweet. The omelet packed just enough flavor and the fruit took center stage in the French toast.
I would definitely make a return visit to The Farmhouse. The owners couldn’t ask for a better location, the food was delightful and the price tag was reasonable. Color me a satisfied customer.
