Info & Reservations

Take a break from the galleries and enjoy Café Sebastienne'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 by an eclectic wine list where an array of hand-selected boutique and single vineyard wines are available alongside a dynamic cocktail program featuring locally-sourced spirits and ingredients.

Café Sebastienne remains an attractive fixture in Kansas City's Independent Restaurant Scene – it's the perfect spot for a special family outing, lunch meeting, brunch celebration, or a local adventure of any kind.

Café Sebastienne is the newest restaurant to earn Carrot Gold status for its support of local farmers and small business owners.
