Like the first fragile buds on Forest Park's trees or Mike Shannon's first home-run call from spring training, the first crowd on Kopperman's patio is a sure sign of spring. Not that people-watching in the Central West End is all that Kopperman's has going for it. The St. Louis institution dishes up simple, hearty breakfast fare, from bacon and eggs to French toast to bagels and lox. The sandwich menu isn't chopped liver, either - though you can, in fact, order chopped liver, as well as one of the city's standout roast beef sandwiches ("Love at First Bite"), beef tongue and the "Ike and Tina Tuna."
