I'm going to be in Kansas City on Saturday and have been googling for vegetarian restaurants. I found this link of descriptions of veg restaurants there:<br><a href="http://www.yelp.com/c/kansas-city-mo/vegetarian" target="_blank">http://www.yelp.com/c/kansas-city-mo/vegetarian</a><br><br>
The one that consistently pops up to the top of the lists is the Eden Alley Cafe. Has anyone here tried it or any of the other restaurants listed?

Jerusalem Cafe has A LOT of veg options, especially if you dig Middle eastern food. They have been voted Best: Vegetarian, Hummus, Falafel, Middle Eastern, Buffet, and Value in KC for several years running. My bestie took me there for my birthday last Friday, and holy moly it was amazing. My suggestion: Falafel sammich, with the lentil soup, and mint tea. They have several veg platters, and a veg appetizer that's just BEAUTIFUL. We went to the location that has a hooka bar upstairs, 4021 Pennsylvania. It's located in Westport. Also there is Aladdin's, and The Olive Cafe around in the same area. There are also several Mongolian grills, Indian restaurants, and Vietnamese restaurants as well. Check out the City Market if you're feeling like Vietnamese or Ethiopian food!!

I'm going to be in Overland Park, Kansas. I did a mapquest directions from the addy there and Eden Alley, and it came up as less than 8 miles. That's pretty reasonable, and not far at all compared to my drive down from Omaha.

I've realized of course the food's gonna be excellent. KC is so known for its chefs that they named their football team after them. Here's a photo of a friend of mine who's from there.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://tommeinenphotography.com/kelsey/kelseychefsfinalimage.jpg" style="border:0px solid;">

I'm back from KC. My aunt and I ate at Eden Alley Cafe. It was very good. It's in the basement of a church and there's an alternative products store sharing the basement with them. It was a laid-back atmosphere and the food was excellent and the people were really friendly. My aunt was familiar with it. She said she wanted us to go to the Bluebird next time, which she said was more upscale.

Governor Stumpy's on Gregory and Oak serves some good vegetarian food. Their black bean burger is AWESOME and you can order any burger on their menu and substitute the patty for the black bean patty if you want. They also will make it vegan if you request it without cheese.<br><br>
They also offer a variety of pizzas (with veg options) and pasta bowls (veg options again) and salads. They really have a nice selection of vegetarian items on their menu. It's not too expensive either. A pop, veggie burger and fries is just over ten bucks with tax there. And I would say it's MUCH better than Blanc Burgers (where they also have veggie burgers but you're going to spend about twice as much there.)

I eat at Eden Alley's alot. I like Eden alley. I live in Independence (rock's throw form Kansas City). I'm active on yelp, and saw this thread. FUD is tiny, but good. We are having a yelp event on Friday at a new place that is vegan. I'm very excited.

I found Fud to be very reasonably priced. I believe that if you look at the menu on the website, it tells you the price <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Wow, I'm so glad I wandered my way into the Missouri folder!! I'm going to Blanc Burgers with one of my friends tomorrow; I've been there before and loved it but this will be my first veg*n trip. I'm so relieved to see there are two veggie burger options! Which one is everyone's favorite, the lentil or the mushroom?

Sadly, the mushroom isn't on the menu anymore. It was my favorite, but I suspect it was expensive for them to keep the fresh mushrooms on hand. I don't think any of the other ingredients on that burger were on anything else, either.<br><br>
They replaced it with a vegan black bean burger. That one and the lentil are equally delicious, IMO.<br><br>
I love that place, I go there a lot. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"></div>

I went with the lentil burger today; the black bean one wasn't on the lunch menu for some reason. I don't think I've ever had lentils before but OMG it was so good!! I don't think missing beef is going to be a problem for me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> The homemade ketchup and chipotle aoli are my faveeee. and the onion rings. ohmigawd the onion rings <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/drool.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":drool:">

Well, it's not really a lunch 'menu', it's the regular one, but on the left side they have this column that says Quick Fix or something, and you get a choice of like 5 different burgers (lentil being the only veg*n one) and then a side of either regular fries, sweet potato fries, or onion rings for only $9.50 from like 11-3 during the week. It was excellent, but 2 complaints: 1) I didn't get the homemade pickle that comes otherwise <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/brood.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":brood:"> and 2) the onion rings didn't come in the cute little shopping cart! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:"> I guess if those are my 2 biggest complaints then it's pretttttty good <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br>
What other veg friendly places do you like here? The only place I can even think of is this place called The Nutty Girl over by KU Medical Center (my dad works there). I've never been there but I think some co-workers dragged my dad there once years and years ago and he sees it as this 'weird' health-food place and affectionately calls it "The Bad-Tasting Food Girl" <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/laugh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":lol:">

<p>Eden Alley is great!  They have some very original gourmet items on the menu.  You can also take a look at <a href="http://www.herbanguide.com/?searchOps=vegetarian&radius=40234&location=kansas+city%2C+mo&pageNum=1" target="_blank">http://www.herbanguide.com/?searchOps=vegetarian&radius=40234&location=kansas+city%2C+mo&pageNum=1</a> for some restaurants that list vegetarian items on their menus.  Sometimes, it can be hard when in such a BBQ-centric city.</p>
