Beautiful Day Cafe

In this age of industrial food it is refreshing to find a restaurant that’s focus is on wholesome meals that incorporate as much locally sourced ingredients as possible. There is a growing disconnect between food sources and ourselves, but the recently opened Beautiful Day Cafe is trying to re-establish the connection one plate at time.… More Beautiful Day Cafe

Twizted Confections

For several years I have lived in close proximity to Twizted Confections and never happened to stop by. I had sampled their cakes and cookies a number of times, but was missing out on much more. Twizted Confections is located at Woodlawn and Central, near Il Primo Cafe, and is the place for anyone with a sweet tooth as… More Twizted Confections

Mead’s Corner

Steph and I recently started drinking coffee on a somewhat regular basis, so we figured it would be good to review a coffeehouse. There is an ever growing list of places to get a good cup of coffee in Wichita, but since we were looking for some lunch as well we went with Mead’s Corner,… More Mead’s Corner

Lou’s Charcuteria

They had me a Charcuterie. I admit I have an affinity for salted and cured meats, or as the French call it, charcuterie. Proper charcuterie is an art  form that dates back to the very beginnings of civilization. Unfortunately due to FDA/USDA regulations it is tough to find much in the way of traditional dry cured… More Lou’s Charcuteria

Albero Cafe

The rise and fall of Bocconcini at Oliver and Central has paved the way for another Italian restaurant in its place. Albero Cafe recently opened in the vacant space to give Wichitans a new option for Italian food on the east side of town. The interior and ambiance of Albero remains similar to Bocconcini. The… More Albero Cafe

YOLO Grill

There are many restaurants in town to get a burger and fries, so in order to be successful,  an establishment has to set itself apart from the others. Keeping the menu simple and not cutting many corners are two easy ways to accomplish this in my opinion. YOLO (You Only Live Once) Grill is just a simple restaurant making… More YOLO Grill

Watermark Cafe

What’s better than sitting down to begin a new book? How about enjoying a tasty sandwich or salad while enjoying your book? Watermark Books and Cafe, located at Oliver and Douglas,  is the place where you can make this happen. Watermark is one of the few remaining independent book stores in Wichita and perhaps some of… More Watermark Cafe

Copper Oven Cafe and Bakery(Don’t Leave Without Dessert)

In my opinion some the most unpredictable dining adventures you can have are at cafes and diners. You never know if the place just pulls everything out of the freezer or if they actually take the time to prepare homemade food. It’s the difference between enjoying a tasty comfort food meal or something that leaves… More Copper Oven Cafe and Bakery(Don’t Leave Without Dessert)

Cow and Sow Deli

It seems like the Wichita dining scene has a lag of several years when it comes to new trends. We are just now getting over the great food truck explosion of 2012/2013, Gastropubs are a relatively new concept, and everything is served on a pretzel bun now. At this pace you can expect Cronuts coming… More Cow and Sow Deli
