Info & Reservations

Take a break from the 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.

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.
