    CLOSED - The Annie Malone Children & Family Service Center first opened its doors in 1888 with the responsibility of caring for local African American and neglected children. Today, their mission remains the same, and to help them better serve the community, Annie Malone's has opened a full-service breakfast and lunch café on the seventh floor of city hall on Market Street downtown. Annie M. features breakfast items until 10 a.m., such as bacon- or sausage-and-egg biscuits, scrambled eggs, bagels, donuts and made-to-order omelets. For lunch, patrons can enjoy items including chicken wings, burgers, fish sandwiches and a chicken Caesar salad. As a part of Annie Malone's services, a portion of the café's proceeds go directly toward the center's cost of operation.
    Baileys' Chocolate Bar
    Located at 1915 Park in the heart of the idyllic Lafayette Square neighborhood, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar serves up some of the city’s best desserts and cocktails, in addition to a small but stellar selection of savory offerings. Thanks to its dim lighting and the rich browns and reds that dominate the interior, Bailey’s Chocolate Bar is well-known as one of the city's most romantic spots. Selections range from classic desserts like crème brûlée and Bailey’s strawberry sundae to more contemporary creations like their vegan banana split made with strawberry sorbet, as well as a variety of house-made ice creams and truffles. Savory offerings include sandwiches, salads and pizzettas, and a sizeable selection of fine cheeses. The bar serves up a bevy of beers, wines, spirits, and specialty cocktails – your sweet tooth will thank you.
    Benito's Gelato
    Gelato is ice cream, except it's better. In Italy, gelato is eaten every day, three times a day, after every meal, often as a meal itself. Or at least it should be. At Benito's Gelato, a rainbow of creamy, bright-colored ribbons of gelato keeps cool behind the glass counter. Made fresh each day by slowly freezing all the ingredients, the gelato at Benito's comes in a variety of available flavors of fresh fruits, nuts, chocolates and liqueurs. Espresso and coffee drinks are also available.
    Berix Coffeehouse
    Berix Coffeehouse serves more than just a cup of joe. The restaurant also prepares authentic Bosnian dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Entrees include doner kebab, goulash and cevapi -- Bosnian flatbread stuffed with ground-beef sausages. Berix does, of course, have coffee along with traditional Bosnian desserts.
    Bissell Mansion Restaurant & Dinner Theatre
    I do declare, I do declare, there has been a murder, and you, sir or madam, can be a part of the action as it all unfurls, or just sit back and watch how the pieces all come together. Either way, meal and laughs will be provided. The former home of Captain Lewis Bissell, built in the 1820s and located in the north-side College Hill neighborhood, is now an everlasting crime scene, with homicides occurring every Friday and Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. For a fee, customers can witness the action and even take on a starring role if they so please while enjoying a four-course meal surrounded by the elegance of early St. Louis interiors, featuring large fireplaces, chandeliers and wooden doorways. The dinner menu, which comes with two glasses of wine, includes an appetizer, salad, entrée and dessert. Guests and suspects can choose from an eight-ounce strip steak, chicken Parmesan or a baked white fish served amandine for their main course. Weeknight shows are available at special group rates.
    Blackberry Cafe
    Most coffeehouses pour a good, strong cup of joe. Others have great atmosphere, and a few serve appealing food. Blackberry, a hangout that's popular among Washington University undergrads, delivers all three. Blackberry's espressos and lattes go down smooth and sock you with enough caffeine to keep you wide-eyed as you bang out that overdue lit paper. And you won't have to exist on java alone: Blackberry has a surprisingly extensive menu of Mediterranean and American fare, such as hummus, baba ghanouj, tabbouleh, wraps, pizzas and sandwiches.
    Blueprint Coffee
    The coffee itself is pretty personal: It's pour-over, right in front of you. The coffee comes served on a metal tray with a coffee cup and beaker, which makes the whole thing feel crafted and scientific. There's also espresso and tea, as well as iced and decaf coffee. Blueprint isn't stingy with the food, either. The slices of bread -- English muffin, New York rye, French peasant, six-grain wheat, raisin cinnamon walnut -- are generous, as are the cheeses from Heartland Creamery. Cream scones, sour cream muffins and croissants were also on hand from Comet Microbakery. Blueprint also has housemade lemon raspberry, plum and peach preserves and compote.
    Booster's Cafe
    Away from the main drag of the Loop sits Booster's Cafe. This small breakfast-and-lunch joint serves up a menu of pancakes, eggs and sandwiches. Vegetarians will appreciate Booster's burger, a mix of soy protein and wheat gluten. Booster's, which is open until 3 p.m., also serves chili said to be from Kit Carson's grandmother's recipe.
    Bubba Tea & Café
    CLOSED - Bubble teas, originated in Taiwan in the 1980s, are lightly sweetened, milk-based drinks. Bubba Tea & Café in downtown St. Louis sells their creamy concoctions in more than two dozen different flavors, including lychee, cantaloupe and avocado. Teas can be orders on the rocks, slushed or hot, and, for an extra fee, with a handful of those little, black tapioca balls. Their full drink menu also includes several coffee and tea beverages. More than just a beverage counter, Bubba offers a breakfast menu featuring croissant, panini and bagel sandwiches, as well as a full lunch menu with wraps, salads and sandwiches. Their pizza panini is served on grilled white bread and comes with Provel cheese, tomato sauce, pepperoni and your choice of two other toppings. They offer plenty of café seating indoors and a few tables outside along Tenth Street.
    Cabana on the Loop
    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.
    Café Breve-Clayton
    Located in the heart of downtown Clayton on South Central Avenue, the quick, little Café Brevé serves up breakfast, lunch and ice cream, with a proud dedication to countless cups of coffee each day.

Café Brevé also helps customers indulge in their sweet tooth with several different ice cream flavors and ways to eat it, including shakes, malts and sundaes.
    Cafe Breve-AT&TCenter
    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.

    Cafe Mattino
    Tucked away in a cozy downstairs space on the historic Laclede's Landing, Café Mattino offers a quiet refuge from the 9-to-5 grind.

Naturally, the highlight of Café Mattino is its selection of mochas, lattes and the like. They also offer fruit smoothies and granitas.
