While my first experience with Messenger Coffee, a local Kansas City roaster, did not thrill me, I rather enjoyed my wisit to this suburban coffeehouse, Black Dog Coffeehouse.

For starters, it's always refreshing to find decent (even if not great) coffee out in the suburbs, Lenexa, far from the city centre, and specifically this space is quite interesting. From the from it looks just like a basic coffeehouse retail space, but if you travel into the back, you'll find a couple of cute little rooms where you can enjoy your coffee, or work, without the bustle of the lobby.

Also, I think they partner with, or own, the Ibis Bakery next door, and that is a completely different looking space, and the combination of the two was quite interesting.

I had the Fetco-brewed drip, and Ethiopia Sidamo, but they also do pour overs, so it is possible that if I selected a different Messenger roast, I would have enjoyed the coffee more. With that in mind, Black Dog is definitely worth rewisiting.
