Brookside / Waldo

Brookside.jpgBrookside's quintessential neighborhoods are filled with charming homes, charming shops, charming restaurants and charming people. Mom-and-pop businesses flourish in these adjacent, yet distinct family friendly neighborhoods on Kansas City’s south side.

Some say Waldo is Brookside’s trendy, slightly more edgy sibling. This is where Coffee Girls is the hip hangout and the rooftop bar at The Well lights up the nighttime sky. They’re both locally owned and places where visitors are welcomed additions to the neighborhood.
