“Best coffee in St. Louis. They roast on location in The Loop. Good light eats, as well. Protip: if you buy a bag of beans you get any drink for free.”

“St. Louis’ peculiar growth pattern, limited to its original 1876 footprint when it separated from surrounding St. Louis County, means that what would be neighborhoods in other cities are often suburbs here. That’s the case with Clayton, just west of the city limits, which has long been a restaurant hive and is still filled with gems like the breakfast spot Half & Half and chef Gerard Craft’s Mediterranean Sardella.”

“Amazing coffee and quick bites down in the loop, always a good place to get your caffeine on in the mornings or wind down the afternoon with a selection of local beers. Both patio seating and indoor spaces are perfect to work on a project, meet up with friends, or just read all day long. ”

“Best. Crepes. Ever. This place is so tasty, full crepes, tons of variety between sweet and savory. Great stop in the heart of Clayton and near downtown St Louis if you need a bite to eat before your downtown adventures!”

“Is there nothing better than finding the best take out place in your city and then further finding out that they have almost every popular version of Eastern Asian drink you could desire? No. This is a simple pleasure and it now belongs to me. I usually get the Anko Bean Milk Tea with - yes, yes indeed! - pudding. ”
