Brookside/Waldo

Brookside was one of the first master-planned suburban shopping areas, built to cater to the newly mobile, 1920s-era car owners. Today, the streets are lined with shops (kids clothing, wine, home décor, jewelry, antiques and many practical services like banking, tailoring and shoe repair) and charming restaurants where you’ll find everything from happy hour to haute cuisine. Friendly, neighborhood feel gives visitors a glimpse into everyday Kansas City. Just to the south, Waldo (Wornall Road to State Line, from 75th to 85th streets) also offers many locally owned retail and dining outlets, including a microbrewery, ladies and children’s boutiques, coffee shops, bakeries and a popular pizza parlor.

Located just east of the intersection of Wornall Road & 63rd Street.
