One of the most colorful places in Kansas City for breakfast or lunch, Succotash, located near Hospital Hill, combines the mismatched ambiance of a thrift store with a menu from a high-end restaurant. A giant, hot pink chandelier hangs above the doorway, and a six-foot tall wooden statue of a wizard greets you as you enter. They serve delicious chicory Café du Monde coffee and have a wide selection of sandwiches and pancake, crepe, egg, and veggie dishes. They have many delicious vegetarian and vegan dishes, like the gooey smoked Gouda and artichoke heart on grilled sourdough sandwich and the veggie wrap. Catering is also available.
Bright red doors welcome you into sun-filled You Say Tomato, a restaurant serious about serving the freshest, best tasting breakfast and lunch in the most casual atmosphere imaginable. Most of their products are local, organic, and pesticide- and hormone-free. There is a quaint grocery area, but they also use these products to create unique dishes such as the meat and veggie bierocks (sort of like pot pies), a variety of paninis, edamame hummus, quiche, and honey vanilla bean yogurt with mint & berries. This is a great place to relax with coffee and the newspaper in the morning or to bring the family for a delicious, healthy meal.
