Overland Park Foodie Itinerary

Start your food-themed adventure with a delicious breakfast. Can’t decide between sweet and savory? McLain’s Market offers tasty breakfast sandwiches and other items, as well as one of the most tempting assortments of pastries and baked goods in the Overland Park area. 

If your breakfast run falls on a Saturday morning, head over to the Overland Park Farmers Market and browse produce, meat, wine, baked goods and more from more than 80 quality vendors. Enjoy live music while you shop and keep an eye out for cooking demonstrations. 

From there, stop in at sister-owned The Upper Crust Pie Bakery for a slice or a whole pie, followed by a visit to Penzeys Spices, the perfect (and delightfully aromatic) place to stock up on spices, herbs, seasoning blends, sauces and more. By now, you’re probably feeling thirsty, so head over to Strang Hall where you'll find some awesome hand-crafted cocktails.

 

Time for dinner? Take your taste buds on a global tour—no passport required! A few Overland Park favorites include Korma Sutra (Indian), The Basha (Mediterranean), ChoSun Korean BBQ, Taste of Africa (African), Elsa’s (Ethiopian), Hot Basil (Thai), Frida’s (Mexican) or Porto do Sul (Brazilian).

When you're in Overland Park, you're in one of the best (okay, the best) barbecue meccas in the world. It's Kansas City’s unofficial cuisine and Overland Park has many of them -- Try Q39 or Fiorella’s Jack Stack, widely considered two staples of KC’s barbecue scene. Want to go off the beaten barbecue path? Try Buck Tui, a Thai - KC BBQ infusion. Or take a step into Broceck's BBQ -- barbecue made with dry-rub, no sauce needed!

Keep the food-oriented fun going with a cooking class at the Culinary Center of Kansas City. The coffee and craft beer industries are both experiencing explosive growth in Overland Park, so try a locally owned coffee shop like Revocup Coffee Roasters or Jinkies! Coffee and Hangout. Need something a little stronger than coffee? Martin City and Brew Lab are two craft breweries waiting to pour your next flights.
