For nearly half a century, Pryde's Kitchen & Necessities has been celebrating the joy of cooking and entertaining with a rainbow array of cutting-edge culinary tools and tried-and-true classics. We are known throughout the United States for our colorful American-made Fiesta dinnerware — in fact, we are home to the largest selection in the Midwest. Our landmark store is an essential place for couples to register for wedding gifts.
National publications showcase the Pryde's experience: the treasure hunt and thrill of discovery among the 10,000-square-foot bounty of kitchen tools and housewares; complimentary coffee and tea; the aroma of pies baking in the shop downstairs; free gift wrapping; and our expert, friendly staff.
A Kansas City icon, Pryde's in historic Westport is a top destination for generations of visitors. The three-story brick structure originally was built in 1922 for the Helen Thomes School of Dancing. The parents of owner Louise Meyers founded Pryde's in 1968, coinciding with the early days of the gourmet movement. As an appreciation for cooking and baking continues to grow, Pryde's mission of bringing families and friends together through shared meals and a love for food strengthens.
