We were in the West Bottoms (Kansas City) shopping last weekend, great time. Needed to grab brunch, did a quick search and found this cool neighborhood a few minutes away. We highly recommend this bistro; farm to table, healthy/vegan options and more. Great service.

Walked to the bistro when staying at the Jefferson House B&B. The catfish dinner was great along with the fried green tomatoes.

The place is lovely. The service couldn't have been better. The tofu scramble I had tasted like whoever contributed to it loves what they do. I am glad I started my day here.

I had blackened catfish, and I also tasted the Blue Bird salad, which was also very good. The restaurant was very quiet when we were there, around 8:00 on a weeknight. Very nice atmosphere, attentive service. Would return often if I lived here.
