Last weekend, we tried out Messenger Coffee for the first time. Holy WOW! What a gorgeous, perfectly-curated space. It is three floors of simplistic, modern perfection. We ordered a caramel latte, a dark pour over coffee, and biscuits and gravy with scrambled eggs for 2 (who can pass up a tantalizing biscuits and gravy?!). We also purchased a loaf of oat bread from their in-house bakery to take home. Everything was glorious. I am not a huge fan of scrambled eggs, but O.M.G., those eggs were delicious. I do not know what they did to make them so scrumptious, but I NEED the recipe. Of course, the biscuits and gravy, made with homemade biscuits, were wonderful as well! And the coffee was strong, fresh, and delicious.

I cannot say enough great things about this new spot. It is a jewel in Kansas City, and a place that I will take everyone who comes to visit – including Kimberlyn next month. It’s new, creative, ambitious spots like this that make me excited and proud to live in Kansas City during this time of renaissance!
