Owner’s Personal Favorites:


  • 3rd Street Social: Andy Lock has a passion for restaurant concepts that any foodie would put at the top of their list. 3rd Street Social has chef driven menus with local favorites like Shrimp & Grits, Truffled Grilled Cheese and Fried Chicken like you’ve never tasted before. Liesl gets the Shrimp and Grits every time and promises you won’t be disappointed. This is the perfect spot for special occasion dining. We highly recommend reservations as this venue fills up fast.
  • Main Slice Pies & Pints: Enjoy delicious homemade pies and a local Kansas City beer (Boulevard, KC Bier Co) at Main Slice Pies and Pints. Don’t forget to order the 3rd and Hummus Trio for your appetizer and the Main Street Pie is always a winner! Main Slice is perfect for a casual dining environment and the kiddos love it too!
  • Frankie Fairlanes: For fastish food that uses fresh local ingredients for every type of eater-Frankie Fairlanes is the place to be! From amazing tacos that Liesl loves (try Apple Pecan & Chipotle) to burgers that make Harlen happy (Smokey KC)-this is the perfect casual lunch stop!
  • Neighborhood Cafe: Cinnamon rolls. Really-need we say more? Neighborhood Cafe always greets you with fresh homemade cinnamon rolls right at your table before you order. A Denver Omelette is Liesl’s favorite and Harlen always orders the Breakfast Burrito. The kiddos share a stack of pancakes and everybody leaves happy.


  • Grains and Taps: Liesl and Harlen love a good beer. Grains and Taps is truly the place to visit if you love craft beer (no Bud Light here). Weathered Wit and Block IPA (both Cinder Block Brewery) are their favorites.
  • Llywelyn’s Pub : This was one of the only places Harlen and Liesl could find every pumpkin beer on tap they could imagine last fall. This pub is truly a beer lover’s dream with over 40 beers on tap. Oh they serve food too. Make sure you order the Spin Dip as an appetizer.
  • The W Bar: Designed and inspired by the 1920’s speakeasies, the W Bar has thought through every detail. It won’t be easy to find-so you better ask us for directions. The lights are dimmed, you’re asked to “speak easy”, and reservations are required. They make amazing hand-crafted drinks. Liesl once made a special request for a Ramos Gin Fizz. If you ask for it-don’t mention her name. It takes over 14 minutes to make-but is the most amazing drink she’s ever tasted.


  • Cameron’s Home Furnishings: If you love the decor in the Browning Bed & Breakfast-this is a must stop for you! Cameron’s has home furnishings and decorations for every season and customer service that is unmatched!
  • Jollys : This is Liesl’s favorite clothing store in Lee’s Summit! Make sure you introduce yourself to the owners-Mallory and LInda when you arrive and they’ll personally pick out an outfit matching your personal style needs.
  • A Thyme for Everything: This is every cook’s dream store; which is why Liesl loves it so much. From every cooking utensil you can imagine, to aprons and tea towels-this store is every foodie’s dream. Did we mention you can sign up for cooking classes hosted by chefs!?! Tell the owner Jet we sent you!
  • Very Violet Boutique: If you love the decor in the Browning Bed & Breakfast-this is a must stop for you! Very Violet Boutique supported the professional design of the Browning Bed & Breakfast. They have beautiful locally sourced pieces that are inspired by the Farmhouse Style (think Chip & Joanna Gaines).
