Three new coffee shops are operating in Kansas City’s downtown and Midtown areas after relatively quiet openings in recent months. Naturally, we went to them all.

Waterbird Coffee Company, 1200 McGee St., KCMO | This corner coffee shop sources beans from Repetition Coffee (Lawrence) and highlights artwork from local artist Brett Crawford. We recommend the single-origin drip.

Grand Coffee Company, 2345 Grand Blvd., KCMO | The owner of this Italian café-themed shop roasts at Brewed Behavior, and the spacious interior is perfect for meet-ups + co-working. We recommend visiting with a friend or colleague.

Post Coffee Company, 3550 Broadway Blvd., KCMO | This Lee’s Summit-based roaster isn’t new, but its shop in Midtown is... sort of. The former location of Monarch Coffee opened under its new ownership late in 2022. We recommend the breakfast burrito.
