Companion Bake House & Cafe

8143 Maryland Ave. Clayton, MO 63105 | Clayton | 314-352-4770

Location Description:

How do the folks at Companion possess the time or patience to turn out such lovely breakfast and lunch items at their Clayton eatery? Haven't they enough to do, turning out some 13,000 pounds of breads and pastries daily for dozens of St. Louis restaurants? Yet here's a scrumptious "Jive Turkey" sandwich (that's turkey, prosciutto, white Cheddar, roasted yellow onion and chili mayo on country white bread), there's a gorgeous slice of veggie pizza -- and let's not forget the eggs and French toast at breakfast. And you'll likely want to take home a treat: The bakery case boasts beautiful cakes, and a loaf of bread (in styles like rye batard, ciabatta, pumpkin-cranberry, or rosemary-olive oil) goes for about five bucks.
