PLEASE NOTE: CAFE SEBASTIENNE WILL BE CLOSED FROM WEDNESDAY, APRIL 7–TUESDAY, APRIL 13 FOR KITCHEN UPGRADES. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
Café Sebastienne is open with safety precautions to protect our visitors, staff, and the Kansas City community. Please find more information about how to dine with us and changes to service in response to the COIVD-19 pandemic here.
Café Sebastienne is an ethical, creative kitchen lead by Chef Rick Mullins. Open for brunch on the weekends and lunch Wednesday–Friday, Café Sebastienne’s team cooks American classics combined with unexpected local ingredients and international influences.
A community-oriented approach drives the restaurant, with an emphasis on sustainable practices and a commitment to working with local farmers and suppliers. This perspective influences everything from the kitchen playlists to the creative approach and expression behind each item on the ever-evolving menu.
Located inside the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Café Sebastienne is surrounded by a rotating selection of art works and installations by artists from all over the world. The café features two unique spaces, one an intimate dining room with a floor-to-ceiling installation of paintings by Frederick James Brown, and the other an architectural, natural light-filled courtyard enclosed by a glass ceiling.
During the pandemic, Café Sebastienne has transitioned from a full-service fine dining experience to a fast-casual restaurant. We have lowered our prices and made changes to our service for the safety and benefit of our community and staff. Read more about these changes here.
