On the southwest corner of Pershing Avenue and Union Boulevard sits the cozy and mellow 2Schae Café, where you will usually find owners Lisa and Don Schaefer working behind, or around, the kitchen counter. Inside this neighborhood café, patrons will find a relaxed atmosphere and casual dining. Breakfast items such as omelets, bagel and lox, French toast and oatmeal are served all day, and their large lunch menu features cold and grilled sandwiches, salads, flat bread pizzas and quesadillas. On Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m., 2Schae sells small pizzas made in-house, and on weekend morning and afternoons they serve up stacks of pancakes with a variety of fixings. 2Schae has plenty of seating indoors as well as a few tables and chairs on their patio along Pershing Avenue.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
