To musicians, a breve is a double whole note; to coffee drinkers, as Café Breve's convenient coffee charts explain, a breve is an espresso shot and half-and-half topped with foam. Located in the AT&T Center at 909 Chestnut Street, breakfast and lunch diners can find their way into Café Breve at the building's entrance at Tenth and Pine streets. The local chain specializes in coffee drinks for the early-morning crowd but also offers full breakfast and lunch menus. In addition to scones, muffins and assorted pastries, Breve's breakfast options include bagels, croissants and ciabattas filled with eggs, meat and cheese. Their lunch items allow patrons to design their own sandwich or choose from their many grilled paninis, wraps and salads. The coffee they offer is Café Breve's own brand, with an array of flavors and roasts available daily. They also serve fruit smoothies and ice cream, for those interested in a quick sweet treat.
A Snickers bar and a Coke would be an odd, out of place even, accompaniment to enjoying a relaxing seat in the lush, historic lobby of the Paul Brown building. Fortunately, connected to that lobby, chocolate aficionados can find a more apt taste of toothsome delights. Behind the glass cases in Cafe Cioccolato, in a rainbow of browns and reds and yellows and whites, sit rows of decadent little treasures brought over from the continent, each one labeled with its region of export. Try a French caramel or a Swiss truffle or taste a Belgian Neuhaus creation made from only pure cocoa butter. Cioccolato also offers a few bites made in-house, such as their chocolate-covered caramel coins. The chocolatier sells espressos and hot chocolate in addition to their saccharine morsels, and their 5 p.m.-to-7 p.m. happy hour features beer, wine and liquor, and other specially prepared food. Patrons can sit in one of the cafés large, comfy chairs and taste a bit of sweetness from the Cocoa Belt.
Located a few blocks from Busch Stadium, Caleco's draws big crowds during baseball season, with fans looking for a pre- or post-game beverage or snack. Also popular among the downtown work crowd, Caleco's highlights focus on pub food - T-ravs, nachos (with cheddar and Provel) and chicken wings - while also providing higher-end options such as filet mignon and a lengthy pasta menu. The bar stays open until 3 a.m. seven days a week.
Top-quality meat and a bona fide big-city atmosphere, but you certainly pay for the privilege. The restaurant takes up most of the ground floor of what used to be the four-story, stainless-steel-clad American Zinc Building. Be sure to take note of the miracle of engineering -- more than 50 feet of unbroken space, made possible with something called Vierendeel trusses -- that creates an open, modern atmosphere, tempered by a giant original mural across one wall. Great steaks -- even better if you're on an expense account.
The downtown outpost of Charlie Gitto's has been cooking since 1974. The menu includes the staples of Italian meals - spaghetti bolognese, fettuccine alfredo, osso bucco - and some St. Louis-specific selections, including T-ravs and the option of Provel on sandwiches. Fans of Gitto's red sauce and house dressing can purchase either at many local grocery stores or at the restaurant.
