I tend to go to divish places for breakfast so this was a nice diversion. The problem with the aforementioned dives is that the coffee is always bad. In fancy places, the meal is always pretty expensive. I think I’ve found an alternative here – pancakes are ten bucks and full meals range all the way to steak and eggs for $15 – pretty darn good for any decent restaurant, much less a hotel. Coffee arrived quickly, with the cream pitcher beside it, hot, good, and replenished frequently. Ahhhh.
Seeing no biscuits and gravy on the menu, my portly companion opted for the buffet where they did reside, along with scrambled eggs (could have had them made to order), bacon, sausage, fruit and lots of other good stuff. That was $16.95.
The hotel is on the National Register of Historic Places (one of five or six hotels around K.C.) and it’s just a fun place to see. Don’t forget to eat breakfast, the most important meal of the day, there, too.
