Visit to Kansas City Iraqi Cafe
By Gina Kaufmann
Kansas City, MO – The Al-Shawi Cafe in Kansas City's historic northeast neighborhood is where Iraqi men come to talk and joke, watch Iraqi news programs, discuss current events, and drink tea. The cafe serves as a cultural crossroads. It sees a daily ebb of patrons ranging from those curious about Iraqi culture to Iraqis living in Kansas City coming to find one another.
