Tea Time 

For more than 100 years, the little farmhouse at 4309 Jefferson was a private residence. Then last month, the owners of Temple Slug, the futon shop next door, turned the building into the new Teahouse and Coffeepot. They completely gutted the house to create a bright, comfortable place to serve a variety of loose-leaf teas; espresso and French-press coffee; and fresh-baked scones, butter biscuits, cookies and quiche prepared by resident baker Jennifer Scanlon. "We also serve soup, sandwiches and bruschetta," says manager Keith Buchanan. It took eight years — from creating the concept to opening day on January 20 — to make the venue a reality, but Buchanan thinks that once patrons discover the place, it really will be their cup of tea. It's open 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday. Call 816-756-2868 for more details.
Mondays-Fridays, 6:30 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturdays, 8 a.m.-6 p.m., 2010
