We offer a full menu of specialty drinks and coffees, crafted by our talented baristas. Fresh, high-quality beans are supplied by Maps in the nearby Kansas City, MO area.

The Coffee

I just want coffee. Read your favorite book over a bottomless brew, stop by for a chat and a Chai to go, or work for a bit with a London Fog in hand. There is no cover charge to come in and enjoy your drink and the atmosphere. Playing games is optional! You can choose to play games (or not) at any time. Purchasing a library pass gives access to the game library.

The Library

What if I want more than just coffee? With over 400 board games to choose from, our library includes award-winning titles from Mensa Mind Games, Origins, and Spiel des Jahres. Our Game Gurus are on hand to help you choose a game to match playing abilities and mood. They can also help with set up, teaching the rules, or acting as judges when a tough call needs made.

Our Staff

The secret ingredient to our great experience? Our baristas and game gurus.

And while they’ve moved on to better and bigger things, we’ll never forget our legacy staff.

Happy Customers

My husband and I decided to check out the Board Game Cafe on our anniversary. We only spent a few hours here, but I wish we could have stayed longer (but there’s only so many hours in a kid-free day 😄) !

Seriously some of the BEST coffee I have ever tasted, beats Starbuck’s hands down, and to the guy that made my caramel coffee- you have a gift

Cozy, friendly, atmosphere. Friendly staff. Clean place. Playing games with my husband was so fun- we both talked about how much fun we had and how much we laughed for pretty much the rest of the day. We will definitely be back and be bringing some friends!

Money well spent!

Great value, friendly staff, amazing selection of games. I would highly recommend!
