Summer in St. Louis: Have an Adventure 

Page 3 of 45

You choose to eat breakfast at Cafe Osage.

One of the loveliest daytime spots in the city, Cafe Osage (4605 Olive Street, 314-454-6868) offers fresh fare directly from its owners' farm in Clarksville, Missouri. You enjoy a shrimp omelet with boursin cheese and avocado in a light-filled space adjacent to a garden shop. After you pay up (your bill is delivered in a charmingly low-tech hardcover book), you mosey on across the street to Holliday (4600 Olive Street, 314-454-5858) to check out what's for sale at the home and gift store, located in what used to be a 1920s market.

No good St. Louis summer day would be complete without a trip to Forest Park, and it's right around the corner! But what to do?

If you choose to go for a jog through the park's scenic running trails, turn to page 8.

If you choose to head to the zoo to gawk at some animals, turn to page 9.
