A Kansas City tradition,
since 1945.

We have been baking the highest quality pastries, cookies, cakes, and breads, and we hope to remain a part of all your family’s special occasions and celebrations for another 70 years (or more!).

Come on in for one of your old favorites, whether it’s our famous chocolate cup cookies, a fruit danish, or a coffee cake. Then, take a look around and try something new, maybe a cup of hot freshly roasted coffee, a cold glass of milk from the local Shatto Milk Company, or a fresh loaf of artisan bread.

Stop on by … we’ll save you a seat!

home away from home

For 70+ years, Waldo has been our home.  The families and regulars make us who we are and we are always grateful to be able to provide a space for people to get together, get their caffeine, & make memories.


beautiful, custom cakes

Whether a 4” smash cake for your one-year-olds birthday or a 4 tier wedding cake for you daughter's wedding, we want to be a part of it.  Our cake department is full of talented and creative decorators and we love when they get to showcase their work. We think everyone should feel special on their day and a cake made with love is the perfect gift.

delicious food & drink

Our baked goods and cakes have kept people coming back for 70+ years. We have expanded our menu to include breakfast, lunch and a full coffee bar. We partner with local coffee roasters for our coffee and espresso and we make our syrups in house.  We are passionate about simple ingredients and house-made food from scratch.

We are passionate about the food that we serve and the history comes along with it. McLain’s has been around since 1945 and everyone here is helping this tradition grow. We are humbled by the opportunity to serve such a great community of people.
