Info & Reservations

One of Kansas City's premier restaurants, Café Sebastienne combines the worlds of contemporary art and contemporary cuisine in the heart of the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art.

Take a break from our galleries and enjoy Executive Chef Jennifer Maloney's contemporary American cuisine while surrounded by the Museum's permanent collection, in either the intimate Café setting, or enclosed Courtyard. The artistic cuisine is complemented not only by the aesthetic setting, but also the eclectic wine list. An array of hand-selected boutique and single vineyard wines are available to enhance your dining experience.

Chef Maloney uses fresh seasonal ingredients and local organic produce each week in her innovative menus. Her dinner selections change weekly to take advantage of the market's current offerings, and her lunch menus change seasonally.

As a finale to your Kemper Museum experience, or the perfect date spot, Café Sebastienne remains an attractive fixture in Kansas City's Independent Restaurant Scene. 

Executive Chef Jennifer Maloney

Chef Maloney's creativity and excellence is acknowledged locally and nationally, including Zagat's recognition of Café Sebastienne as one of America's top restaurants eight years running, and guest chef appearances at the esteemed James Beard House in New York and the renowned Cannes International Film Festival.
