    What a beautiful day to enjoy lunch on the patio at Whistle Stop Coffee & Mercantile located at 227 SE Main St, Lee's Summit, MO. Today was my first visit to this local hometown secret and I ordered the delicious Chicken Salad Melt Panini and the Ginger Peach Tea. I was not disappointed in the least bit and I will most definitely be going back soon. The service was superior and the food was prepared quickly and was very tasty. Whistle Stop started in downtown Lee’s Summit over 26 years ago. It is very apparent that many locals call this quaint little spot home. If you haven't stopped by for coffee or to grab something for lunch, check it out today!!

    Second time enjoying the delicious fresh food at this First Watch in Lee's Summit. I love how this restaurant has the staples but has a lighter approach. I usually enjoy the chia pudding bowl with almond toast and granola. However, on this lunch date with my daughter, I decided to try the kale salad and the veggie sandwich. The great thing about dining at First Watch is you have so many choices. I think next time I will be trying some sides and enjoying the fresh juice; I am a sucker for some beats. I would suggest using their app to save your place in line. It is always busy but worth it.

    There is just something magical about pulling down a gravel road ranch driveway and knowing that you are going to live your best life as a cowboy or cowgirl for the day! The Rising Star Ranch is a place where you can enjoy the country air, take a lesson, board your horse, have a birthday party, or enjoy their fall festival. Plus it's really close to Winterset Park and Longview which are in the Lee's Summit, MO area. Trust me this is a great place to just get away for the day or maybe you may find yourself as one of the family.

  • The Residences at Echelon Apartments are really quite nice. As a newcomer to Lees Summit, I noticed these apartments when I drove by the corner of 150 and 291 in South Eastern Lee's Summit. They are only a few years old and already filling up. The landscaping is beautiful and you can tell the management takes pride in the upkeep of the place. They have a beautiful pool and the clubhouse is nicely decorated. If you are looking for a classy place to rent, this may be the place to check out.

    One of my favorite places to have a cocktail in Lee's Summit is Hand in Glove. it's a new-ish bar with a cool modern vibe. The entire place is swathed in marble and the chandeliers are gorgeous. Even the bathroom is pretty! The bartenders are friendly and aim to please. They specialize in coffee and coffee cocktails. My favorite cocktail is "The one with the vodka in it". It's lightly sweet and a pretty Instagramable pink. The bar is well stocked with all the liquors. This place is easy to find - just look for the red chairs out front inviting passersby to stop in.

    I had the opportunity over the weekend to go check out the new Goat Brewing Company in Lee's Summit, MO conveniently located off of 291 Hwy and Rice Rd. They are in the very beginning stages of opening, but it is definitely a fun place. The decor in this new hotspot is very nicely done and the place was hopping with a wide range of customers looking to enjoy a quiet night out and enjoy a great beverage.

    This brewery offers a wide variety of many beers. They brew styles from IPA and Wheat to Lagers and Stouts. They've also created some Ciders, Sour beers, Barrel-aged beers and have future plans to make some Meads. My personal favorite that I tried was the Ace Pineapple Cider.

    At the current time, they do not serve food but do have plans to expand into that area in the near future. They do allow you to bring in your own food to consume and Domino's Pizza is also offering a discount if you would like to have a delivery made right to the brewery. If you are looking to check out a new local brewery, look no further!!

    Japanese Steakhouse has become my all-time favorite hibachi restaurant since moving to Missouri. It's almost always a quick 'get into' place, and the service has always been great! The staff is very friendly and always seems to be on top of everything. If you're not a fan of hibachi, there is a Mr. Sushi located right inside situated to the left of the restaurant. They offer reasonably priced dinner for two deals, so it's perfect for a date night getaway. Make sure you wear stretchy pants because the amount of food you will get is insane! This restaurant is located right next to a few stores making for a fun evening out!

    This coffee shop is located in a busy part of town! Lee's Summit North High School is around the corner, Lea Mckeighan Park is across the street and shopping centers can be located east and west. Post Coffee Company keeps the menu simple and the vibe simple. Some shops are not successful at this and even more so are not successful when one tries to complicate a cup of Joe! See a cup of Joe is simple in itself and Post sees that. Just stop by and take a visit, you will thank yourself!
