Meshuggah Coffee House

6269 Delmar Blvd. University City, MO 63130 | Delmar/ The Loop | 314-726-5662

Location Description:

Perhaps the friendliest coffeeshop in town, Meshuggah reflects that mishmash that is the U. City Loop. Wash. U. students, local yuppies, countyfolk on a shopping stroll and all demographics in between flock to Patrick Liberto's warm-hued house of joe, where the coffee is prepared a cup at a time, to order, by mixing two shots of espresso with steamed water. Some compare the caffeinated punch this process delivers to cocaine. A small menu of baked goods from Companion Bakehouse, plus inventive, delicious salads and sandwiches made on-site, keep the diehards (don't they have anywhere else to be?) well fed.
