KC Coffee Trip
The KC Coffee Trip is full of delicious flavors, but we think some of the best flavors can be found at Pour Coffeehouse in northwest Olathe. With homemade pastries, breakfast burritos, and a variety of specialty diet treats, Pour has something for everyone to eat! A large list of teas, seasonal syrups, and delicious coffee options, this is the perfect spot for a meeting, a family breakfast, or even a cup of coffee with a friend. Enjoy the picnic tables outside or the quaint indoor space.
KC Quirky Trip
Junque Drawer Boutique is a three story building full of hidden treasures, home decor, jewelry and more. Now serving alcohol to enjoy while you shop, you won’t want to leave this magical place! Explore the rooms of the historic home, shop with friends, or enjoy some much needed self care time while shopping for yourself.

KC History Trip
Explore what it was like in the 1860s on the only stagecoach stop left on the Sante Fe Trail. Explore the livestark barn, the indoor museum, meet the chickens, or even take a ride on a stagecoach! Don’t forget to explore the original Mahaffie house, where you can explore both the main living area and the basement stagecoach stop and historic cook stove.

KC Sweet Treats
Hokulia Shaved Ice is serving up Hawaiian specialty treats back on the mainland right here in Olathe. From authentic shaved ice, over 50 flavors to choose from, to specialty ice cream you won’t want to miss out on these sweet Hawaiian treats. For shaved ice, choose from traditional flavors such as strawberry, lemon lime, and grape or specialty Hawaiian flavors like lychee, guava, or Li Hing Mui. Hokulia has classic ice cream flavors, but they also boast over 10 Hawaiian flavors, such as Maui Mango Sorbet, Macadamia Nut, Island Colada, and Hawaiian Honeydew. You can also enjoy smoothies and popcorns at Hokulia. To dream about all of their flavor options, visit https://hokuliashaveice.com/olathe-kansas/#menu.
