Really cute cafe, nice menu, book theme is amazing. The cafe space is really neat and clean, the only bathroom / toilet is a nightmare. Seems like a contest of wills between employees & management to see who will crack and clean it first.

Super cute cafe! I cannot recommend the spinach feta croissant highly enough. I'm so glad that the barista with the mask recommended it to me. Service was excellent. I hope to enjoy it again soon!

Officially my favorite coffee in St. Louis - was just passing thru on a road trip and I had the opening here. Delicious coffee, fantastic service, and atmosphere that is beyond compare. This is a must visit if you’re in STL.Btw, the barista asked where I would put the sticker I bought. Proud to display it on my favorite travel mug, will be spreading the word!
