With four small tables tucked into the windows, also covered with elegantly draped red curtains, you walk onto a traditional black and white checkered floor littered with small little wooden tables and beautiful and elegant mirrors listing the bar’s drinks on the exposed brick walls. After we sat down and ordered, Eggs Norwegian for me and Crispy Fried Chicken for him, we admired the general splendor and fresh florals before our meals were squashed onto our tiny window table.
The eggs norwegian is a traditional eggs benedict with one change–instead of bacon, there’s a thin layer of lox. It’s absolutely scrumptious and I feel better about eating salmon than bacon, so there’s that. With a healthy layer of hollandaise and the perfect poached eggs, it’s a masterpiece of a meal. If I could eat it every day, I think I would. This also comes with some great hashbrowns, which are also delicious.
For the crispy fried chicken–which Michael gets every time we visit–it’s two huge pieces of fried chicken in the best breading ever. It’s sweet and salty and crunchy and just the right amount of breading to chicken ratio. It also comes with brioche french toast and gravy for the chicken.I hadn’t tried Michael’s meal until this time because I was too busy stuffing my face with eggs benny, but Michael gave a quarter of his chicken to try (meaning take a little nibble and then return) … and I couldn’t stop. And then I ate half of his french toast. I apologized, but I really wasn’t sorry. Though we usually get orange juice or a soda for brunch, there’s a free drink (that means alcoholic drink for those of you who prefer that) with every brunch meal, which makes this a steal of a deal.
Despite the fact that they help fuel the fire of my eggs benedict addiction, it’s one of our favorite places to visit in KC. If you just so happen to be there on any given Saturday, there’s a good chance you’ll see us at our little window table tucking into our favorite brunch in the city.Westport Cafe and Bar (419 Westport Road, Kansas City, MO // 816.931.4740)
