Cafe Europa: A new bistro in the heart of the city
When you hear the term café, a certain image comes to mind—outdoor terraces, broad Parisian streets—with table upon table of onlookers sipping espresso and nibbling salade au chevre chaud. Kansas City has been called the Paris of the Plains, and while our climate doesn’t necessarily allow for year-round outdoor dining, we have our own takes on café style.
One notable example is Cafe Europa. The Crestwood Shops location has been serving up fresh, seasonal fare to the ladies (and gentlemen) who lunch and their evening counterparts for years. But as the city grows, so does the need for places to congregate, to converse and to simply be. Such was the case with the up-and-coming Union Hill neighborhood, and Café Europa has filled that need.
