Some of us just aren’t morning people – we’re brunch people. Brunch is more than just a meal – it’s a signature weekend event. Whether you’re in the area for the Overland Park Farmers’ Market or bringing the family to explore the shops and parks in Downtown OP, there are plenty of options to get your mimosa on.

They’re known for the wings and BLTs but don’t overlook the brunch menu at The Peanut. You’ll find traditional brunch menu items from make-your-own breakfast tacos to hearty portions of biscuits and gravy. The bar is stocked with mimosas and Bloody Marys too. And if the weather is nice, you’ll have prime seating on their patio to people-watch on Santa Fe Dr.
7201 W. 79th St.
Got a group ready for brunch on the patio? You got it at Maloney’s. Maloney’s has a street-level patio and a rooftop patio for those perfect Midwest days in Downtown OP. Come hungry to Maloney’s as they offer full and half orders of French toast and biscuits and gravy. They also offer avocado toast, chicken and waffles and breakfast pizza rolls.
7313 W. 80th St.
If you like your brunch earlier rather than later while you’re at the farmers’ market, Strang Hall opens the earliest at 9 am on Saturday market days (open at 10 am on Sundays). Two of Strang Hall’s chef-driven kitchens offer brunch options. Solstice and Fénix run fresh brunch specials regularly. Fénix just added their famous Hawt Chicken & Biscuits as a set menu item and Solstice has a new, extensive brunch menu. Bar specials include $5 mimosas and Bloody Marys and $15 mimosa carafes.
Drink your craft beer and have a Bloody Mary too. Brew Lab’s brunch menu includes traditional brunch items such as French toast and breakfast sandwiches but our fav is the Crabby Patty, a crab cake on a brioche bun topped with a fried egg, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. Try one of their house-made Bloody Marys or splurge on a mimosa bucket!
