The Roost

A popular breakfast and lunch spot located in the heart of downtown Lawrence, The Roost was opened in July 2013 by Mandy Jolly and her husband Sean. Though it is fairly new, the business has been a raging success.

The Roost was named after Manda’s family farm in western Kansas, and serves up delicious breakfast and lunch food, as well as pastries, coffees and cocktails; “We believe food is an essential building block of family, friendship, and culture. We delight in consistently creating quality breakfast, lunch, pastries, and beverages with extra attention to detail.”

Dishes include everything from breakfast classics like pancakes, french toast, made-to-order omelets, to soups, salads, and sandwiches for lunch.
