Tuckaway just north of the city in a beautiful brick building, Happy Gillis is a delightful, small breakfast joint. Went there on Saturday morning wasn?t too busy. I ordered two eggs toast bacon and split an order of biscuits and gravy with my sister. Gravy was half sausage and half mushroom, I think I like the mushroom best. Forcibly priced and friendly staffed with highly recommend Gillis
Had a second sandwich but completely demolished it. Food was great and pleasing to the eye and the eggs were super fluffy. Orange juice was freshly squeezed but beware if you don't like pulp. All in all it was a relaxing little brunch and I will be coming back
ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!!! Great atmosphere, unique, clean. The food looked and tasted AMAZING! We got the Tandori chicken pita and the pork belly grilled cheese which were absolutely phenomenal!
Absolutley loved this cozy community based cafe. The food was amazing, specifically the tandori pita and also the burrioto. The kids loved there buiscuit and gravy. Seating is first come first serve and the place was packed. I guess thats when tou know your in the right spot.
Cozy atmosphere, family feel. Delicious, large portions, great for kids to share. Eggs and biscuits/gravy fantastic. Artisan mugs you can purchase, unisex bathrooms. Highly recommend.
We stopped here twice in our stay from Friday-Sunday because we enjoyed it so much. We ordered biscuits and gravy that we quickly became obsessed with, hence why we came back for a second breakfast. My husband ordered a Bloody Mary which was also delicious. It is a great breakfast spot, with quick and kind service and a fun atmosphere. Oh, and order the bacon.
First time dining at Happy Gillis. What a gem. Small menu, but adequate. The breakfast combo plate with biscuits and gravy and scrambled eggs was delish, and more than I could eat in one sitting. They served an interesting but delectable blend of Messenger coffee in locally handcrafted ceramic mugs. Service was excellent. Restaurant was clean, cozy and chic. Now I know why it?s one of my girlfriend?s favorite brunch spots in the city. Can?t wait to return.
The best breakfast place in KC! look no further if you want a classic breakfast joint in a homie environment serving the best breakfast food in the city! Where do I start? Location: perfect. Small little joint (seats 30 max maybe?) In charming little Columbus park. We got there right when they opened at when we sat down there was about 5 other parties waiting. So if your going to eat here get here early unless you wanna wait! Service was good! Not great, just good. Always tough to tell with the masks on (facial expressions and whatnot) but the vibe from the employees felt a bit "alright hurry up and order". Whatever the service lacks, the food makes up for it times 50. The BEST BREAKFAST SANDWICH ID EVER HAD. You wouldn't believe me if I told you it was just eggs, cheese, bacon, sauce and bread. But they nail the quality of the ingredients and they cook them extremely well. The bacon was off the charts good. My wife ordered the biscuits and gravy which was also absolute fire. Definitely on the "my friends are coming into town, where do I take them?" List. Amazing!
