- Raise a cup to The Roasterie tomorrow.
Those coffee shops sure grow up fast these days. The Roasterie Cafe at the One Nineteen Shopping Center (119th and Roe) in Leawood celebrates its first anniversary tomorrow. Each customer will receive a 1.75 ounce bag of coffee and the real party is from 1 to 2 p.m. because that's when the free coffee and cupcakes are being served.
The original Roasterie Cafe in Brookside (6223 Brookside Boulevard) celebrated its sixth anniversary on October 18, only four days after a small electrical fire briefly shut down their downtown plant. While you're at the One Nineteen Shopping Center, you can poke your nose into Fo Thai (4331 W. 119th St.), a modern Thai restaurant expected to open there next month.
