The Anchor

Burger and fries at The Anchor in Wichita, Kansas

Located in the heart of the Douglas Design District, The Anchor is a combination pub and butcher shop that’s become a community staple. When I popped in for a quick weekday lunch the pub was bustling. With an expansive menu ranging from sandwiches and salads to burgers and meat-heavy entrees, The Anchor has something for everyone. I’m always a sucker for pickled onions so opted for the Turkey Pretzel Pub burger. Not only was the burger juicy and delicious but it was also a hefty portion that I didn’t even come close to conquering.

Alongside the restaurant, you’ll find The Anchor Meat Market, a butcher shop that not only provides cuts for the restaurant but does local business as well. Stop by and grab beef, pork, poultry, or even rabbit to prepare at home.

Bakesale Treat Parlor

Formerly Peace, Love & Pie, the newly opened Bakesale Treat Parlor brings even more sweet treats to Wichita’s Bradley Fair. From bars and cookies to ice creams and cakes, there’s something at this shop to satisfy every type of craving. And yes, this sweet shop still serves up the pies that made it a local favorite.

The Belmont

Located in Wichita’s College Hill neighborhood, The Belmont is the perfect place for a classy brunch or an intimate date night. With inventive craft cocktails and entrees teaming with locally-sourced ingredients, everything we tried at this local spot was delicious.

During our visit, we sat in the restaurant’s balcony area with a birds eye view of the rest of the dining room and the patio beyond. Don’t miss out on The Belmont’s bruschetta flights. This appetizer of three topped toasts elevate traditional tomato bruschetta in a way that’s both unexpected and delectable. While we visited during dinner, I’ve also heard excellent things about The Belmont’s brunch offerings.

Chicken N Pickle

Have you jumped on the pickle ball craze yet? Now thanks to Chicken N Pickle you can practice your skills on the court then refuel at one of the most unique places to eat in Wichita. Chicken N Pickle offers a great combination of indoor and outdoor space to play, eat, drink and enjoy.

The complex has both outdoor and indoor courts that you can rent on an hourly basis. Pickle ball gear is also available for rent so don’t worry about needing your own. If you’re not in the mood to hit the courts, Chicken N Pickle has ample outdoor and indoor seating as well as full bar and food menus.

During our visit, Josh and I enjoyed a few competitive rounds of pickle ball (I won) before heading inside to order some dinner. I chose the Chopped Burnt End Sandwich while Josh got the NKC hot chicken. After all that competition, I couldn’t resist a Knotty Cherry, the grown-up version of a Cherry Limeade.

Whether you’re looking for a kid-friendly spot to spend time or planning an outing for a group, Chicken N Pickle is worth a visit.

Cocoa Dolce

Cocoa Dolce isn’t just a regular coffee shop. It’s a self-proclaimed “Sweet Lounge” that is sure to satisfy even the strongest sweet tooth. While you’re find all of your favorite caffeinated beverages here, what really makes the trip worthwhile is the desserts. Cocoa Dolce’s handmade (and hand-painted) chocolates are almost too beautiful to eat. But when you do, you’ll discover they’re just as decadent as they are gorgeous. To top it off, Cocoa Dolce also serves a variety of baked goods as well as gelato.

This local favorite has three shops located across Wichita so no matter what part of the city you’re in, you can find something sweet.

Crafted Wichita

Crafted is easily one of Wichita’s most unique coffee shops! This northeast side spot not only serves coffee and tea but also specializes is truly delicious poke bowls. Whether you’re already a fan or looking to try something new, Crafted has something for everyone.

During our visit, we opted for the Aloha and Sunset Bowls along with a Thai iced coffee. Not only were the bowls filling and well-priced but they were also super fresh. If you’re in the area, Crafted is a great option to grab lunch or an afternoon pick me up.

Dockum

Knock twice to enter. Dockum is a Speakeasy-style bar in downtown Wichita that you won’t want to miss.

Located in the basement of the Ambassador Hotel Wichita, Dockum serves craft cocktails and small plates in an intimate setting. After knocking and gaining entry to the bar within, we grabbed a table and perused the cocktail menu. If you’re in the mood for a flashy, performance cocktail, I recommend ordering The Smoking Gun. As we sipped our drinks, we nibbled on some light bites while enjoying the Dockum’s live music.

The bar is named for the Dockum Drug Store that once sat on this site and played a prominent role in Wichita’s Civil Rights history. In 1958, the drug store was the site of one of the first organized lunch counter sit-ins in support of integration in the U.S.

Plan to make a reservation for your visit to Dockum, especially if you plan to go on the weekend. Seats do fill up and space is fairly limited.

The Donut Whole

Show me a new town, and I’ll find the best donuts. In Wichita, that meant a trip to The Donut Whole. Located in the Douglas Design District, the Donut Whole is easy to spot by its large rooftop rooster. The local donut shop is as colorful on the inside as the donuts it serves. With walls papered with vintage advertisements and funny greetings, the Donut Whole feels like a piece of home—even if it’s your first visit.

In preparation for a morning of mural hunting, I stopped into the Donut Whole for a sweet snack. After a lot of consideration, I chose a Midnight Rainbow donut—chocolate frosted with rainbow sprinkles. As you leave through the front doors, remember to look up at the sidewalk awning. Public art—even donut themed—is everywhere in in Wichita, if you know where to look.

HomeGrown

Omelette and ice latte at HomeGrown in Wichita, Kansas

Even on a weekday, HomeGrown is bustling with people eager to dine at this daytime eatery. But this Wichita mainstay isn’t your average breakfast joint. HomeGrown brings Wichita truly delicious food with a mission to “cultivate kindness” so it permeates into the community and beyond.

The popular eatery offers seasonal selections as well as crowd favorites in a warm, inviting atmosphere. Their homemade Pop-Tarts are a favorite amongst visitors and regulars alike. And their fresh-made juices are a perfect compliment to any meal. During my visit, I opted for the West Coast Wake Up omelette paired with an iced coffee.

HomeGrown has multiple locations across the Wichita metro as well as a new location in Kansas City.

Milkfloat

Milkfloat has a mission I can get behind—celebrate dessert. Located in Wichita’s Delano District, Milkfloat is a bakery and ice cream shop that offers all sorts of decadent desserts. The best part? They’re open late! I find that I’m most likely to crave a pastry of some sort after 8:30 pm. So I was delighted to have Milkfloat nearby to satisfy my cravings.

One night before I headed to the firepot lighting at the Keeper of the Plains, I popped into Milkfloat for a sweet treat. For the first time (maybe ever) I decided to forego ice cream in favor of a triple chocolate, homemade PopTart. And I was blown away! The outside of the pastry was perfectly flakey while the inside filling remained gooey and sweet. Don’t miss out on this incredible shop when you’re looking for places to eat in Wichita!

Nifty Nut House

While it’s not technically a restaurant, no foodie post about Wichita would be complete without mention of the Nifty Nut House. This local snack emporium is a candy lover’s dream. With hundreds of nuts, pretzels, seeds, chocolates, and candies available for purchase by the pound, I dare you to walk out without finding something you just had to try.

Need a recommendation? The Milk Chocolate Double Dipped Peanuts and the Chocolate Covered Gummi Bears were both fast favorites of mine. I also recommend rounding your snacks out with something salty like one of the Nifty Nut House’s many varieties of pretzels or sesame sticks.

Nortons Brewing Company

Direct me to a brewery with a fantastic food menu and there’s not much else I need. In Wichita, that’s Nortons Brewing Company. When I visited Wichita, I grabbed dinner at the taproom bar and loved experiencing a little slice of the city.

Located in the Oldtown neighborhood of Wichita, Norton’s Brewing Company includes a large taproom and enclosed patio with porch swings, yard games, and more. Seated in the busy taproom at the bar, I tried to order the charcuterie board only to discover they were out for the evening. That ended up being the best disappointment ever. Because of it, I got to experience the best spinach artichoke dip I’ve ever had. I paired my newfound favorite dish with a flight of Nortons Brewing Company’s craft beers. While I’m usually more of a dark beer girl, Nortons’ Cool Water Sammich—a watermelon mint gose—was my surprise favorite. This minty beer was the perfect summer sipper and left me wanting more immediately.

Old Mill Tasty Shop

As far as classic soda fountains go, you can’t get more authentic than the Old Mill Tasty Shop. During my time in Wichita, I popped into the Old Mill Tasty Shop just before closing for an afternoon milkshake. Growing up, there was a soda fountain up the street that we sometimes visited on special occasions. This Wichita institution took me right back to those days.

Seated at the counter, I ordered a coffee malt that was so big it arrived in a glass and an almost-full milkshake mixer. Topped with whip cream and a cherry (how else!?) I sipped on my malt while taking in the history around me.

Prost

Entrees from Prost in Wichita, Kansas

Located inside of Wichita’s shipping container park Revolutsia, Prost brings delicious German food to the heart of Kansas. This urban bier garten is the perfect spot to grab a liter or two with friends or snack on some European delicacies.

During our visit we couldn’t resist trying some new-to-us German beers. In fact, Prost only serves imported German beer that has followed the 1516 German brewing purity law called the Reinheitsgebot.

After enjoying our drinks, we also ordered the restaurant’s Bavarian-style pretzels as well as jägerschnitzel and bierock. Whether you’re a big fan of German food or just looking to try something new, Prost should definitely be on your list of places to eat in Wichita.

Public

If patios are your passion, your time in Wichita must include a meal at Public at the Brickyard. Tucked behind a brick walled courtyard that reminded me of a piece of New Orleans plopped down in Wichita’s Oldtown neighborhood. Public is the perfect blend of pub atmosphere with all the cozy qualities of a friend’s backyard patio.

We started our meal with an order of the Public Pickles. While I had never heard of this as an appetizer, I was more than on board. Alongside a jar of sweet pickles, we received slices of bread, meat, and cheese to stack and enjoy. Public has a variety of tempting dinner entrees alongside their rotating specials, but ultimately I was won over by The Cuban. Perfectly pressed with just the right amount of mustard, this sandwich ranks high on my list of best Cubans ever.

Just when I thought I couldn’t love Public any more our check arrived, nestled in the pages of a worn hardcover book. I loved reading the notes past patrons had left in the book’s worn pages while we got ready to continue our evening elsewhere.

Reverie Coffee Roasters

Finding great coffee shops is high on my to do list when exploring a new city. Luckily, I liked Reverie Coffee Roasters so much that I visited two days in a row. Located in the Douglas Design District, Reverie Coffee Roasters is a bakery and coffeeshop that will immediately make you feel at home. Both times I visited the shop was bustling with customers enjoying their breakfast and people having meetings over coffee.

On my second morning in Wichita I pulled up a seat at the bar to answer some emails and sip on one of the coffee shop’s signature lattes. But it wasn’t long before I couldn’t resist the pull of their gooey monkey bread any more. I was just lucky I had a couple more days on the road and couldn’t take home the half dozen loaves of bread I initially had my eye on.

R Coffee House

Tucked in a quiet residential neighborhood near Wichita’s many museums, R Coffee House is a hidden gem in every sense of the words. With copious patio seating under the branches of towering trees, this is the perfect place to enjoy a quiet morning. I grabbed a veggie omelette and large mug of coffee on my last morning in Wichita, and was delighted to find such a tranquil place to relax before hitting the road.

The Spice Merchant

Much like the Nifty Nut House, The Spice Merchant isn’t a restaurant as much as its a culinary adventure. Even if you’re not looking for food, The Spice Merchant is worth a stop just for the smells. Today this former warehouse space is full of loose spices, tea leaves, and coffee beans. Roam the aisles and you’ll discover all sorts of culinary gadgets and kitchen accessories you never knew you needed. Or grab spices in bulk or beans by the pound to bring home with you. During a trip to The Spice Merchant, one thing is certain—you never know what you’ll discover.

Tanya’s Soup Kitchen

When I asked a group of locals where I should go to grab a quick lunch, all of them responded immediately with Tanya’s Soup Kitchen. And after visiting, I can certainly see why! This local gem is located in the Douglas Design District and offers both indoor and outdoor dining. Don’t let the long line scare you off — it moves quickly and you won’t have to wait long for your order.

While its name may imply otherwise, there are lots of non-soup options available at this local mainstay. From fresh salads to hearty sandwiches, the menu at Tanya’s Soup Kitchen is the embodiment of its mission: “food and soul, artfully blended.” During my visit I opted for a cup of one of the daily soups — gazpacho — as well as the Ella Salad with the cafe’s homemade apricot dressing (on recommendation from the team behind the counter). Everything was divine and the salad was truly one that I wouldn’t soon forget.

And if you’re a truly indecisive soup lover, fear not! Tanya’s Soup Kitchen offers a Flight of Samples that includes four 2.5-ounce servings of their soups of the day.

Wichita Brewing Company

The Real Dill Pizza at Wichita Brewing Company in Wichita, Kansas

It’s been more than 10 years since Wichita Brewing Company opened its first location in the Kansas community. But that hasn’t lessened Wichita’s thirst for quality craft beer and equally delicious food. With 19 different taps to choose from, there are brew options galore at this local favorite.

The brewery is known for its expansive menu of mouthwatering and sometimes daring pizzas. Wichita Brewing Company features a Pizza of the Month, but there are dozens of other options to choose from as well. During my visit, I decided to opt for a more adventurous option and ordered the Real Dill. Advertised as a “pickle lover’s dream,” this savory pie combines a creamy lemon dill sauce with chopped dill pickles, sliced red onion, Capicola and mozzarella cheese, all topped with a drizzle of Ranch dressing.

Wichita Brewing Company has two locations in the metro as well as a venue for large events.

When I travel “home” to Wichita I am always drawn to the notaligia of the Dog and Shake and Nu-Way. I love the Nifty Nut House and Spice Merchant bit you’ve given me a few ideas for new traditions!

I’m so glad to hear it! I’ll have to try the two of those the next time I visit. Thanks for reading, Priscilla!

Do Dahs
Has the best banana bread French toast. I have never eaten anything that was not wonderful. Also check out the Do Dah store right next door.

Banana bread French toast sounds like a dream! I’m definitely adding the Doo-Dah Diner to my list the next time I’m in Wichita. Thanks so much for the recommendation, Linda!

Wichita is one of my favorite cities in the whole country so I was thrilled to see this post. 😉 I’ve eaten at many of them and loved finding some new places to add to my list. The Anchor was probably my favorite meal, though Reverie Coffee has a killer breakfast. 😉 You missed the best restaurant of them all though so be sure to add Doo-Dah Diner to your list for next time. And take me with you! LOL

Well, it sounds like we need to go back and have breakfast together at the Doo-Dah Diner! I was so delighted by Wichita. I can’t wait to visit again soon!

While in Wichita were you able to sample from the different food trucks? Gaga’s Grub has “The Ugliest Taco Truck that is driven to different locations. The owner also has bookings open in February for a several course meal for 10-12 couples. It is not your usual taco. There is a facebook page you can check out.

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to try out many of the city’s food trucks when I visited, but they’re typically some of my favorite places to grab a quick bite to eat when traveling. I’ll definitely follow their Facebook page and keep an eye out for The Ugliest Taco Truck the next time I’m in town. Thank you so much for the recommendation!

Thanks for reminding me about all these swell places.

You’re so welcome! Thanks for reading, Susan!

Doo-Dah Dinner is a must stop. Harrison Ford likes to there when he is in town. It is a popular local spot for breakfast.

How cool! I’ve gotten so many recommendations for the Doo-Dah Diner. I can’t wait to visit the next time I’m in town. Thanks for the recommendation, Thelma!

I would agree that all of these locations are fabulous places to eat and to get additional items for home use. However I don’t remember them serving food at some of these locations. Am I wrong?

Good point! While the Spice Merchant and Nifty Nut House aren’t necessarily restaurants, I thought they were awesome places to grab a snack or edible souvenir for the road. Thanks so much for reading!

Next one you are in town be sure to tryTanya’s Soup Kitchen, Doodah Diner forbreakfast, an Beautiful Day Cafe. Thank you for the kind remarks about our hidden gem! Namaste!

Thank you so much for reading and for your recommendations, Christy! I loved my time in Wichita and can’t wait to come back to try more restaurants soon.

So glad you enjoyed our fantastic city! You hit a lot of my favorite spots too – next time check out Flying Stove food truck for amazing burgers & anything, really; Mikes Wine Dive is a highly rated restaurant & wine bar with lots of fancy ratings in wine mags in an adorable neighborhood; Central Standard Brewery, which has a very cool 70s vibe with fantastic beertenders & always friendly crowd, it’s a go-to spot on a warm day; and Stearman’s for brunch to watch antique Stearman bi-planes flying on the weekends. And if you have time, pop over to Hutchinson to see the Cosmosphere Space Center & the Underground Salt Museum & stop in Yoder for a slice of Amish pie on your way back to Wichita. You’ll them all!

Oh my goodness! Thank you so much for all of these fantastic recommendations. It sounds like I need to plan another trip to Wichita just to eat!

A couple of holes in the wall that are really good: The Oasis Lounge (Big “O” burger) and The Artichoke Sandwich Bar (the Nancy or a Twisted Seester). Yokohama Ramen Joint in the Delano district is really good and very unique. Bite Me BBQ is the best BBQ in Wichita. It’s always worth a trip to see the “Soup Nazi” at Bagatelle Bakery. Her Baklava is wonderful! Yes, Doo Dah Diner is good! Thank you for showing interest in the state of Kansas! Since you adore “World’s Largest”, try Big Brutus, West Mineral, KS (view a google satellite map of the area before you go to fully take in all the history of mining in the area).

Thank you so much for all of these recommendations, Niel! I’ve been blown away by the generosity of everyone’s time and favorite places to enjoy a bite to eat. I can’t thank you enough for the “world’s largest” recommendation! I’ll definitely make it a stop on my next Kansas road trip. Thanks again!

I recommend the Riverside Cafe! Great greasy spoon breakfast stop! Also loved The Hill and Wine Dive when I lived in Wichita.

I love a great diner! Thanks so much for the recommendation, Lisa!

I definitely don’t reccomend NuWay! You might not come back if you try it ? Cant say anything about Dog n Shake as I’ve never had it. TJs burger house is awesome!
