Vincenzo's (242 South Florissant Road, Ferguson; 314-524-7888) Mike Lonero's Vincenzo's evokes the Old World, swathed as it is in deep maroon walls and accented here and there with black-and-white photos, plants overflowing from their pots, and lots and lots of wine. Italian classics, like chicken Marsala, eggplant Parmesan and spaghetti Bolognese are well executed, but the staff points toward the "Amaretto Chicken" and the "Steak Domenico" as the bestsellers. The from-scratch desserts are all made at nearby Cose Dolci Bakery, and they change on a regular basis: Keep an eye out for the decadent tiramisu and cheesecakes.

Corner Coffee House (100 North Florissant, Ferguson; 314-521-4600) It'd be tough to find a sweeter start to your day than a stop at the Corner Coffee House: Each morning brings freshly baked goods, from rich baklava to cinnamon rolls to thick slices of pie. Heartier breakfast fare, such as the slinger, is also available. Better still, most everything is around $5. Its espresso drinks also provide an early-morning lift: Try the chocolate-vanilla-carmel "Milky Way." Not an early riser? Corner Coffee House also serves sandwiches, soups, salads and wraps for lunch.
