About Us


Our Australian influence

Our Australian influence

Our Australian influence

When we moved to Kansas City 6 years ago, we loved our new home but we missed the amazing cafe and bakery culture of Australia.  As a bunch of convicts and immigrants, Aussies have melded flavors from around the world and at Banksia, our passion is deconstructing those classic dishes and turning them into casual fare that you can enjoy every day.


Stay Awhile

Our Australian influence

Our Australian influence

Sunny days are made for our patio with great tunes and our amazing menu and the best coffee in Kansas City. Our beautifully restored historic building is the perfect setting for our indoor tables; a favorite of the downtown crowd on weekdays and weekends!  We also offer free wifi and smiles!

EVENT CATERING: We have tailored our most popular menu items for corporate and event catering so come and ask us what we can do for your next event or special occasion.



Our Australian influence


We offer an exceptional menu of breakfast, lunch (dinner will restart in our new Sth Plaza location); catering to the sophisticated diner in a casual cafe setting.  We have combined a multicultural Australian influence on the classic European cafe and bakery to produce what we think is the concept the Mid-West has been missing.

We are starting construction on our second location at 4800 Main St after some long delays!!

(dinner is no longer served at our downtown location but will move to our Sth Plaza location)
