Located in historic downtown Leavenworth, Meriwether's is a coffee shop, cafe, and market dedicated to providing our customers with fresh & delicious food, drinks, and provisions.


Meriwether's opened in December 2015 and is located on the corner of 7th and Cherokee in Leavenworth, KS.  What began as a small grab-and-go coffee counter quickly evolved into a sit down cafe and market.

Meriwether's was named for Meriwether Lewis of the famed Lewis and Clark expedition team, who made their initial landing in Leavenworth after crossing the Missouri River into Kansas in July, 1804.  It is this tie to our past and appreciation for our community that drives our authenticity in everything we do.  We source whole foods, brew organic and fair trade coffee beans roasted in Kansas City, and encourage local artisans to displays their crafts within our space.

We seek to be a cornerstone in the community, a place where residents can gather to eat, shop, and spend time together.  We strive to support other local businesses and purchase from small-batch producers of quality goods whenever possible.  Our mission is to provide natural, real food made from scratch and served with love and a smile!
