Fantastic Atmosphere - GREAT Food.
We went to Soulard Coffee Garden for Mother's Day and it was wonderful. The breakfast food was great - I had Eggs Benedict which was fantastic - some of the best I've ever had - and my husband had the Biscuit and Gravy which was really tasty as well... (usually a toss up between great or terrible when ordering and it was definitely great at SCG).
We had a wonderful casual brunch sipping mimosa's and enjoying food and coffee. It couldn't have been better unless we had been able to sit on the terrace or patio... which were full, unfortunately.
Amazing, busy on Sundays.... The food was amazing! The special that day was cornmeal blueberry pancakes that knocked my socks off and the coffee was dark and thick. The only drawback was the wait for food, but it was also Sunday morning and the place was packed. It was worth the wait, for sure.
For latte and pastries, for lingering over the Sunday paper with eggs Benedict..
From the purple walls to the friendly staff, this place oozes positive energy. People share their papers when they're finished, and one regular offered this bit of advice to another upon leaving: "Have a good day, and remember, love is everywhere." By the way, don't fret if the downstairs is crowded; there's a second floor with ample room, whimsical tables, great natural light and a stocked bookshelf.
Choose from several types of coffee and tea as well as hot chocolate and apple cider. Try a slice of pear-walnut coffee cake or, if you're feeling truly naughty, turtle cheesecake. Two types of sandwiches, panini (grilled) and deli (cold), are offered, along with three types of salads. Panini include garlic-roasted eggplant and ham and brie, while vegetarian and roasted chicken are two of the deli sandwiches. Daily quiche, pasta, soup and sandwich specials round out the menu. Don't miss the portobello mushroom panino with cheddar, caramelized onions and black olive paste on five-grain bread.

city boy. Best breakfast in the city. Great food and great ambience.
Get the sausage croissant. Great coffee. Great food. We take all of our out of town guests to the backyard garden.
A bit of Europe in StL. Casual yet upscale, quiet little coffeehouse/restaurant. Full of character in an old Soulard neighborhood. Intimate decor; lounge-like area in an upstairs loft. Also outdoor seating. The sandwiches are made to order and are delicious; try the chicken pesto sandwich. Awesome fresh fruit salad. Very fresh ingredients. Constantly changing selection of fresh-baked pastries and sweets. Great place to meet for coffee and converse; food and coffee is worth paying for. It is too bad that it isn't open later into the night.
