A Kansas City tradition (since 1945), McLain's Bakery has been making the highest quality pastries, cookies, cakes and breads for the past 70 years. Come on in for one of your old favorites, whether it's our famous chocolate cup cookies, a fruit danish, or a coffee cake. Then, take a look around and try something new, maybe a cup of hot Thou Mayest coffee, a cold glass of milk from the local Shatto Milk Company, or a fresh loaf of artisan bread.
