Adjacent to St. Louis university campus, I found Cafe Ventana. Being a student and centrally located to my housing, I gave it a try. A great combo coffee house and DELICIOUS SOFT MEALS. FRIEND, do you need an excellent place? Then Cafe Ventana is the answer. They have a nice patio if you have a larger group. I have been there with my fellow students for study sessions and the think tank is a perfect accommodation. Great prices and the best beignets outside of New Orleans.
Closest coffee shop to SLU - the Cafe has a variety of seating options including cozy, comfortable seating around the fireplace on a chilly day, outside patio seating for warm sunny days and the Think Tank for study days when you need a place to study with a group. My fave is their coffee and beignets - they were excellent and reasonably priced. The black bean breakfast burrito is an excellent choice for breakfast!
If the smell of fresh brewed coffee isn't enough, the aroma of breakfast wraps and other delicacies will make you light headed. One taste of the food and experience of the atmosphere will keep you coming back to this quaint coffee bar and cafe again and again. Like coming to a good friends house with great food and no dishes to wash.
This is a great little Starbucks. The drinks are well prepared & the pastries are fresh. The staff is friendly & gracious. They have whole coffee beans & the barista is knowledgeable about them. It's a nice place to enjoy a cappuccino & pastry. Take home some whole coffee beans to make your visit complete.
BEIGNETS: This needs its own section, because they are that good! Neat little coffee house and a bonus is their free wifi service that comes in handy when studying. Lots of great menu selections.
I love going to this place and just hanging out. The coffee is great and not overpriced. It's comfortable. The food is okay. There are a couple of terminals available. It's just so far away.
What a great spot. Excellent food, ambiance, and very friendly staff. A great addition to Cherokee.. I had the Roasted Potatoes and Pork Shoulder Sandwich and would definitely recommend..
Yum! Picked up 2 of St Louis's best gooey butter cakes for an office event (the turtle was simply amazing). Drank a cup of great coffee on my wall back. Great staff, great experience.
Staff is very nice. Like coming to this location since it's so close to where I live. I also like that they will grind your coffee for you.
I went here for brunch this weekend and it was AWESOME! The cafe had a great energy and the food and service was excellent.
