Located on 63rd and Oak Street in Kansas City, Missouri is the baby blue building known as Heirloom Bakery & Hearth. The cozy wood tables and cute little aloe plants combined with an aroma of espresso have a way of making you feel right at home as you sit in Heirloom.
Heirloom is a place that I love to go with friends if I’m needing a little escape from reality. My best friend Faith and I like to call it our “coffeeshop home”. You may laugh, but really…..it’s like a little home in the way that the staff treats you with such care and kindness and also in the way that it is decorated! BUT, with that being said, it’s a place that I refuse to take homework to. I love doing homework in coffee shops and bakeries, but Heirloom is a place that, when I think of it, I don’t want to think about doing all my homework, I want to think about good conversations, great company, and of course, a yummy latte along with a gluten-free, caramel drizzled brownie (or two)!
Among the many things that I love about Heirloom, the wide variety of the treats that they have is most definitely near the top of the list. Not only do they sell them, but they MAKE them! How cool is that?! Fresh, homemade treats of all kind. Everything from brownies and cookies to breads and poptarts – it doesn’t get much better than that!
So, next time you’re out and about, searching for the perfect spot to camp out at for an hour or so, pop on over to Heirloom. You are guaranteed to be greeted with a smile and to leave with a belly full of good coffee and yummy pastries.
