Two Kansas City coffee shops land on the Yelp 100 best list

Fix your bucket list, coffee snobs.

But you take your morning coffee – black, iced, or with a horrifying dollop of mayonnaise there – you will love to be a quality cup of coffee

But with thousands upon thousands of stores claiming exactly that promise, it can be scary for serious java-drinkers to break from their usual routine and try something new or different.

To help, analysts at Yelp have compiled a list of the 100 best coffee shops in the United States, and two Kansas City shops made the list.

These rankings are based entirely on ratings and recommendations from the Yelp review community. Note that Yelp’s “Top Coffee Shops” list is based on reviews that not only rate each shop’s coffee, but often the service, ambiance, snacks, and possibly the availability (or lack thereof) of mayonnaise.

The 25 best coffee shops in America, based on an analysis of Yelp reviews and ratings, are below. A complete list of the top 100 can be found at

Coffee not quite your cup of tea? Yelp previously revealed its best rankings craft breweries, winery, pizzerias, Margarita, pieeven burritos in every situation. Very few, however, are served with mayonnaise.
