Looking for some breakfast and lunch, I wanted to take my daughter to somewhere I’ve never been to. That required us to travel outside of Wichita. After browsing around the list of restaurants on the outskirts of town, I came across The Meeting House in Sedgwick, KS. It’s been a place that has come highly recommended by readers. The drive wasn’t too far at all so we hopped in the car and headed north.
507 N Commercial Ave
Sedgwick, KS 67135
Monday – Saturday: 8am – 6pm
Closed on Sunday
Inside, The Meeting House was pretty quaint. I enjoyed the holiday lights hanging from the ceiling.
Their menu displayed against the back wall behind their counter. There were a few breakfast items. The biscuits and gravy had already sold out when we arrived which was a bummer. Fortunately, there were some other items that sounded great.
I went with the Italian turkey sub while my daughter went with the mac & cheese and an egg patty that usually came on their breakfast sandwiches.
My daughter has become quite picky in the past couple months which is one of my biggest fears. How am I supposed to share the joy of blogging food with my kin who is becoming the opposite of me? It’s something we’ve been working on but we thoroughly loved the mac & cheese. It wasn’t the overly milky or cheesy kind. The noodles had the right soft texture to go with a cheese that was coated on and wasn’t all too messy. My daughter gladly ate the entire bowl which was a huge relief given how much food she’s wasted here as of late.
Meanwhile, my sandwich didn’t seem like much at first but was the perfect amount over lunch. It was small enough that it didn’t drag me down during the day but big enough to keep me satisfied all afternoon.
The ciabatta bread did a tremendous job of holding the sandwich altogether. Its texture was the right amount of crisp and zero sogginess. There was an even distribution of turkey, bacon, tomato, mayo, basil pesto, and cheese so the flavors blended properly with no one ingredient overpowering the other; just a simple, well-constructed sandwich.
The staff was very pleasant and greeted every single customer as if they were a small-town regular. I’m guessing so because it seemed like they knew everybody who walked in the door besides me and my daughter. The ambiance was chill and peaceful and the service was quick and friendly.
Once again, it was another win for our daddy/daughter dates and cool to go support small-town local, not just Wichita.
Here’s the menu:
