This cafe is crazy cool. If you've been to New Orleans before then you'll notice that it kind has a French quarter type of atmosphere (without the Mardi Gras craziness haha). With about 5 to 6 rooms (including outdoor patios) this place has plenty of seating available. Also, if you come during the weekends you'll get a chance to hear... More

I love this place. There are two rooms - one designated a quiet place for study and I go there to write. There are also two patios - one in the lovely sun and one in the lovely shade. Food is good. My favorite is the bagel, cream cheese, salmon plate. Beignets are the best outside of the Cafe Du... More

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... More

My wife and I tripped into this cafe on a Friday evening to try out their beignets and a cup of coffee. It was a good decision. Very mindful of New Orleans. The coffee was superb. We doubled back the following morning to try out their breakfast options and to buy a pound of their coffee. They have taken a... More

Went with my wife and daughter for dinner. Food was yummy, and chips were served fresh and hot. I liked that they had craft beers as well as their coffee drink offerings. We had beignet sliders that were very good and unique. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!

When we arrived there was a cloud of grease in the air..I assume from the fresh beignets they sell. I had an interesting sandwich with carmelized apples and brie served with house made potato chips. The chips were underseasoned but the sandwich was delicious.
