Half & Half

8135 Maryland Ave. Clayton, MO 63105 | Clayton | 314-725-0719

Location Description:

Half & Half serves both breakfast and lunch, but the breakfast menu here - available throughout the day - is unquestionably the star, as owner Mike Randolph (who opened the midtown pizzeria the Good Pie) gives the Most Important Meal of the Day a contemporary bistro treatment. You can pair your eggs with pork belly; the steak in your steak and eggs is a hanger steak. Coffee service, featuring beans from Kaldi's, is extraordinary, from the "ordinary" drip brew to grounds filtered through cloth so as to capture the maximum amount of their essential oils.
