276 N. Skinker Blvd. University City, MO 63112 | St. Louis - Forest Park | 314-862-4447

Location Description:

In the mood for a Rocky Mountain high, or just a caffeine high? Get your fix either way at Kayak's, a coffeehouse that could easily pass for a ski lodge in Vail, staffed by baseball-capped, groovy-cool dudes and dudettes who look like they're saving up the cash for a one-way ticket to Breckenridge. Even the sandwich names get into the game: Order your basic turkey-cheese-greens panini or wrap via a moniker like the Telluride, the Yukon or the Durango. (What is this, lunch or SUV?) Try the organic chocolates for sale by the register or, in winter, treat yourself to the Mexican hot chocolate.
