Cafe Cà Phê


916 E 5th St, Kansas City
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

The brick-and-mortar location of this former food truck is located in Columbus Park, a historic neighborhood heavily influenced by Vietnamese-American immigrants. This spot instantly stands out with its mural of a dragon on the building exterior, while inside is bright and full of wall art that makes you feel like you’ve walked into a friendly art classroom.

Definitely order the Hella Good, which dubs itself “The New Purple Drank” and is made with Vietnamese Coffee, sweetened condensed milk, and violet ube syrup. And be sure to check out whatever pastries they have, which get delivered daily from local Vietnamese bakeries. Just know the lattes and coffee are extremely strong—you might find yourself with the caffeine shakes while you’re sending a weekend work email.
