Treat yourself to some homespun comforts at Bee Creek Bakery & Hearth Bread Co. in Platte City, Missouri.

Locally owned and operated, the café and bakery makes all of its baked goods – think pillowy cinnamon rolls, crispy rice treats, flaky chocolate croissants and melt-in-the-mouth lemon-cream cheese cookies – fresh daily.

While those alone warrant a visit, the breakfast and lunch plates are equally delicious. Paninis and other sandwiches are served on a variety of housemade breads, including croissants, brioche, country white and wheat berry, and the coffee is custom-roasted by The Roasterie in Kansas City.
