My New Favorite Coffee Shop

Kaldi's Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato

I found a new coffee shop across the from the office the other day; completely by accident.

I had a hard time sleeping on Monday night. I went to bed and woke up in the middle of the night. I felt like I’d slept forever and I was completely awake so I felt sure it was 5 AM. However, it was only slightly after midnight when I looked at the clock. Ended up staying awake and not falling back to sleep until a half past three. Naturally, I was exhausted when I woke up the next morning.

I got to the office around 7:30 AM and then decided and I needed to find some coffee, stat. I recalled walking past a Starbucks last week when we walked to lunch so I went looking for it. When I walked out of the building, I noticed Kaldi’s across the street. I did find Starbucks, which was to my left. I was faced with the decision of crossing 12th Street to go to Starbucks or crossing Main Street to go to Kaldi’s. The novelty of a coffee shop that I’ve never tried before ultimately won.


Kaldi’s has super cute d├ęcor inside.


I love this cozy corner nook with a really hip light fixture above it.


They made me the most delicious mocha, complete with coffee foam art. I’m not much of a coffee drinker but I thoroughly enjoyed my mocha yesterday. So much so that when Kelsey asked if I wanted to go get coffee with her, I didn’t need much coaxing. I couldn’t wait to return.

The mocha I had today was even better than yesterday. I think it’s because I asked for whipped cream. I can totally see myself getting addicted to this place, specially since it’s conveniently located across from the office.

I’m not going to lie. As much as I hate being away from my babies and as much as I hate driving, I love working in Kansas City because EVERYTHING is within walking distance. If we lived in Kansas City’s downtown loop, I could walk to work and everywhere else and life would be just dandy.
