Thank you on behalf of my husband and the many other veterans in the metro area.  I appreciate local restaurants and services that look after the “hometown” people.  Your organization has an admirable record.

One of the best meals we’ve enjoyed in a long time!!  Brussell Sprouts & Mussels were exceptional… the Mac & Cheese is a classic. We highly recommend Cafe Trio to others! – Recruiter on 5/3/14

The service is always top notch and if you like an outdoor venue, their deck will not disappoint!! The view of the Plaza is spectacular and the service on the deck is just as attentive as it is inside. Always a favorite restaurant!! – on 5/3/14

Keep doing what you are doing. Crab cakes were wonderful. – Julie H. on 5/7/14

    The buy tickets link for the Wizzard od Oz is not working. Is there another way to purchase a ticket?

      If you can tell us what problem you are having in more detail, perhaps we can help you navigate through it. We clearly want it to be working as it is supposed to but without added details I cannot get it fixed. I have tested the link and it is working fine so far as I can tell and does each step as outlined.

      From previous experience we have found this the most secure, quick convenient way for folks to purchase from us. If you don’t want to bother with this, then go ahead and send us a check made out to AIDSWALK KC for the total amount of tickets you are ordering at $20 each and when we have received your check, we can add your name & guest names [if any] to our list. for the event.

      Please mail that to Cafe Trio, 4558 Main St., KC, MO 64111. Att: G Morey
