The original 6 North Coffee Company, located in the Central West End neighborhood, (the other is downtown) prides itself in being local and independent. The family-owned and -operated café, which is open Monday through Friday, serves Kaldi's Coffee, another locally owned company. The menu reflects typical coffee-shop fare, with lattes and mochas to drink and salads, soups and sandwiches to eat. 6 North also offers catering and box lunches.
The downtown location of 6 North Café offers a full menu of lunch and breakfast items. Located at 701 Market Street in the Gateway One building, patrons can enter the ground floor café at the corner of Eighth and Chestnut streets. The locally owned 6 North features Kaldi's coffee and loose teas, as well as assorted pastries, bagels and breakfast sandwiches in the morning. Lunch options include hot and cold sandwiches, wraps, salads and daily soups. 6 North also sells fruit, coffee and tea, smoothies, and box lunches catering to downtown offices. Plenty of indoor seating is available offering an upscale coffeehouse ambiance, with additional outdoor tables and chairs along Chestnut Street for fair-weather dining.
As a quaint, bustling cafe by day, Benton Park Café whips up a wide range of quality concoctions. Their signature booze smoothies, or Boozies, complement the drink menu packed with beer, fountain soda and the house specialty: coffee cocktails. The hardwood floors and neutral colors incite the cool decor of a coffee house, but the food selection stretches far beyond the standard café. Breakfast pizza pies and Benton Park’s take on the Slinger provide early morning munching while their Bistro Steak Sliders provide a meaty solution for an empty stomach. Benton Park Café keeps the kitchen running 24 hours a day on weekends, making the corner of Lemp and Arsenal the hippest spot for a hungry barfly.
Leanna Russo isn't the biggest fan of eating sugar and sweets, but that doesn't mean her Benton Park bakery isn't topnotch. In fact, a light hand with the sweet stuff is what makes Russo's pastries so darn good. The lemon meringue torte with a pine-nut crust and browned Swiss meringue is a lovely blend of sweet and tart with a savory backbeat. Be sure to try the peanut-butter bar, which knocks Reese's out of the park. Savory dishes, including a daily lunch special and made-from-scratch biscuits topped with peppery sausage gravy, are also available.
Husband and wife Wendell Bryant and Latoshia Morrow opened their family-friendly Cabana on the Loop as a relaxed, vacationlike spot to grab breakfast and lunch. The restaurant occupies a storefront on the eastern edge of the Delmar Loop and offers breakfast, lunch and weekends-only dinner. Dishes lean Southern, such as biscuits with turkey gravy, shrimp and grits and a fried catfish sandwich. Cabana on the Loop has a large selection of dressed-up waffles and French toast, as well as a cereal bar that diners can top with a variety of accouterments. Don’t leave without trying the honey-glaze onion rings -- these golden beauties are like a cross between onion rings and a funnel cake.
Attached to the Bowood Farms nursery in the Central West End, Café Osage offers breakfast and lunch fare featuring produce grown in a garden across the street, bison raised by Bowood Farms and house-smoked and -cured meats. Led by chefs David Guempel (Zinnia) and David Kirkland (Frazer's Brown Bag), the kitchen turns out an excellent take on the classic BLT with thick bacon, Brie, tomato jam and arugula, as well as a fine Carolina-style pulled-pork sandwich. The space, between the indoor nursery and a courtyard, is lovely.
Here you can have a light lunch of excellent hot grilled sandwiches, sip a cappuccino while you study for the LSAT or even blot out a bad day with real-deal absinthe. Located on the edge of Central West End and midtown, the cafe adds a touch of artsy French style to an otherwise industrial stretch. Thanks to the patio and annex, there are always plenty of tables and comfy chairs to occupy everyone from neighborhood SLU students and businesspeople to casual passerby. The friendly staffers take their coffee seriously, but that's just the beginning. Sure, you can caffeinate at Cafe Ventana, but you can also brunch, booze and stave off boredom with trivia, movie nights and live music. On any given night, tables get pushed aside for everything from punk to indie rock -- just a couple of the flavors offered at Cafe Ventana after hours.
This homey south-city spot packs 'em in on weekend mornings, and with good reason: The breakfast items are out of this world. Fluffy three-egg omelets come stuffed with the usual suspects (ham, Cheddar cheese) and more exceptional ingredients (salsiccia, artichokes); heavenly pancakes (buttermilk or buckwheat) fairly flop over the sides of the plate. Come lunchtime Chris' offers a nice selection of sandwiches. This is good food served by good folks.
In France crêpes are street food, but in Clayton they get the upper-crust treatment at this cute, bustling breakfast-and-lunch spot. The crêperie is particularly popular with female baby-boomer townsfolk in search of a quick, relatively cheap bite. And who can blame them? Nearly twenty varieties of sweet and savory crêpes (ultra-thin, ultra-light pancakes with an eggy-sweet flavor) come stuffed with endless, gourmet-quality combinations of roasted vegetables, Havarti cheese, mesquite-grilled chicken, creamed spinach, pineapple, smoked salmon, jams, bananas or classic Nutella. Soups, salads, sandwiches, quiches and Belgian waffles are available, but you don't go to Ted Drewes for frozen yogurt, do you?
Perhaps every community needs a greasy spoon. If so, then the upscale downtown Clayton area meets its requirement with the Clayton Diner. Not exactly the type of food you might expect around the intersection of Central Avenue and Forsyth Boulevard, this diner serves up breakfast, burgers and other diner fare in a friendly, retro atmosphere. With a few booths and counter seating available, Clayton Diner is a true diner. The breakfast menu features eggs, omelets, hotcakes, French toast, and biscuits and gravy. Daily lunch specials include rotisserie chicken, beef tips in gravy and a catfish sandwich. Burgers and hot dogs are also available, including large offerings and smaller, "buck" versions available for 99 cents. And of course, what diner would be complete without a slinger, made here with two burger patties, cheese, hash browns and an egg all covered in chili.
How do the folks at Companion possess the time or patience to turn out such lovely breakfast and lunch items at their Clayton eatery? Haven't they enough to do, turning out some 13,000 pounds of breads and pastries daily for dozens of St. Louis restaurants? Yet here's a scrumptious "Jive Turkey" sandwich (that's turkey, prosciutto, white Cheddar, roasted yellow onion and chili mayo on country white bread), there's a gorgeous slice of veggie pizza -- and let's not forget the eggs and French toast at breakfast. And you'll likely want to take home a treat: The bakery case boasts beautiful cakes, and a loaf of bread (in styles like rye batard, ciabatta, pumpkin-cranberry, or rosemary-olive oil) goes for about five bucks.
