The Morning Room

Kansas City, Missouri » 39th Street
Once in a blue moon, I get to enjoy a breakfast date with the husband. Like everyone else out there, we play a mad game of dashing out the door every morning to start our days and our jobs. So unexpected breakfast dates are a nice surprise. After a brisk walk to pick up our bikes from the Plaza and a short ride back to 39th Street, we cruised into our neighborhood breakfast place and took a seat by the window. Our server Adam looked so familiar (because he worked with George at The Lodge six years ago). Adam has just been back in Kansas City for six months and it just goes to show, we really do live in such a little big city.

George's a la carte Brekkie, $10.25
Half Order Biscuits & Gravy ($4), 2 Eggs ($4), Bacon ($2.25)
