Hit the Mother Lode at Pizza 51

Some days the good things just fall into your lap. Pizza 51 West, at 5938 Mission Road was one of these good things. On a Sunday afternoon we were running late for having lunch. A quick check of the maps on my phone showed a pizza joint was fairly close to our location. Without any previous research we decided to just wing it, and drop in for a bite.Continue reading

A Combined Effort at Homesteader Cafe

One of the best things about maintaining your own travel blog is being able to select the places you write about. We find that some of our best articles are those that revolve around a great back story. This is why we love doing restaurant articles. There are so many great life stories out there just waiting to be told. A prime example would be Homesteader Cafe located at 100 E. 7th Street in downtown Kansas City, Missouri.Continue reading

The restaurant is located just a few blocks south of the Plaza, at 5107 Main Street in KCMO. They offer up a diverse menu with surprisingly affordable prices.

Early Eats at Ronni’s Restaurant

It was around Noontime on a Saturday, which worked out perfectly for this breakfast & lunch only diner. The restaurant is tucked away in a fairly plain strip mall located at 12812 West 87th Street in Lenexa, Kansas.Continue reading

Long Standing Tradition at Dagwood’s Cafe

The Rosedale section of KCK is filled with small to medium sized businesses, in and around the “Boulevard”. This area was founded early in the city’s life, and has had it’s ups and downs over the years. Flooding has always been a fear of the residents and business owners in this low lying land. While these trials have tested, and broken many companies, some have remained steadfast through the years. One of these is Dagwood’s Cafe at 1117 Southwest Blvd. Upon entering, you find diners lining the counter or spread out at the tables. People on their way to work mingle with families enjoying a break from their hectic days. Everyone seems to be relaxed here, and the coffee flows freely.Continue reading

Real Food For Real People at Wolfe-es Restaurant

The residents of Armourdale are hard working people who value their money, but enjoy spending time with their neighbors. This is apparent when you visit Wolfe-es Restaurant located at 842 Osage Avenue. The Armourdale area of Kansas City, Kansas is one of the older sections of the city. What began around 1880 was a base for many of the meat packing companies that called Kansas City home. The area has been subjected to near total devastation from floods in 1903, and again in 1951. Through all of this, many families have continued to call this area home. Continue reading
