Annie Moons Bakery and Café

We've all heard the silly saying, "Never trust a skinny chef." Well, the culinary team at Annie Moons Bakery and Café's collective pants aren't bursting at the seams, but their rotund mascot plays the part. Patrons of the Tower Grove South breakfast, lunch and brunch spot can prevent similar fat-bottomed fates thanks to the menu's bite-size portions. The muffins here are so petite, the tops hardly have any hangover, so neither will yours. Try them in not-so-skinny flavors like strawberry cheesecake and banana split with chocolate drizzle, or go for a healthier option, such as the staff favorite: oatmeal almond raisin date. A small selection of baked goods rotates by day, so you'll have to stop in often to see everything from baker Roxanne Cypret's recipe repertoire, including lemon squares, fruit and nut scones and individual cooked-to-order quiches. Bring the pooch and chill on the patio — Annie Moons makes dog treats in flavors that include carob; cashew and almond; and peanut butter.
