Good morning! I love being halfway between St. Louis and Kansas City - it provides a lot of opportunity to explore these great cities within a weekend. Today, I’d like to share a few of my favorite spots in St. Louis (we’ll tackle KC another time)! Below, I’ve listed my favorite places to shop and eat:
Cafe Osage / the best brunch spot in town, along with housing a beautiful shop full of everything from toys for kids to gardening tools to stationary!
Shake Shack / the best burgers from New York finally made their way to Missouri - worth the hype tenfold.
Jeni’s Ice Cream / you can smell the waffle cones here from a mile away. Do not sleep on Jeni’s!
Left Bank Books / the cutest book shop in STL. I ended up leaving with Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney, but that was one of about 20 books I wanted from this place!
Coma Coffee / succulents everywhere and iced coffee are the best combo in my opinion.
Urban Outfitters / always good, and the best store in the Galleria.
Fiddlehead Fern Café / espresso on tap and lavender lattes - run, don’t walk!
Thanks for reading! I wanted to update my guide with new places to check out, as St. Louis gets better with each visit. Let me know if you have any favorite spots in the city, and have a fun day!
