Foo's Frozen Custard is better than ice cream. It's thicker, creamier, and richer, and it comes in many different forms. Especially good are the concretes (super frozen custard mixed with any flavor you want) and slurries made with all natural fruit. Flavors include any fruit or nut you can think of, along with chocolate or mint. They also have hot and cold coffee drinks. If you want to wait until after lunch for this great dessert, a lunch menu is available with sandwiches, croissants, wraps, and soups. -Robin Sontheimer
The Roasterie serves some of Kansas City's best locally roasted coffee. The café's eponymous coffee comes in many exotic blends such as the 40 Sardines Blend and the Autumn Harvest Blend.

They have some pastries available, but their biggest draw is their fresh, rich coffee and relaxing atmosphere, perfect of studying, reading, or hanging out with friends. -Robin Sontheimer

If karaoke is not your thing, darts and pool are also available. They even have a pretty good jukebox. Fun and relaxing, this is the perfect bar for night out with friends. -Robin Sonteimer

Gilhouly’s is your basic neighborhood bar. Converted from what looks to be an old drug store, a long room opens up as you enter through the corner doors. The place is all brick and red leather booths, with three pool tables in the back. The staff is friendly, the lighting is dark, and the jukebox is stocked with hits from all decades. What makes Gilhouly’s unique? All the free self-serve popcorn you can eat out of an old movie theater popcorn machine. -Robin Sobteimer

It seems that in almost every American city you will find at least two or three hookah bars, some are better than others and in this town, Sahara Sheesha is at the top of the list. A truly nice place to sit back and enjoy a hot tea and smoke, the staff is eminently helpful in finding the right tobacco combination for your group. In addition to the tea and smoothies, the Turkish coffee is phenomenal.
