This is a double review of two restaurants located next to one another. This restaurant; Small in size. The interior is in need of a serious redecorating. The tables are covered with tablecloths that are always sticky. The service can be very hit or miss. There isn't a host or hostess. Upon arrival sometimes customers are expected to know to... More

I love the mom and pop type business and this place is just that. Warm and peaceful everyone very friendly. These things are important to me but the food is the most important. I can't explain how good it was to me. The cajun shrimp pasta is to die for and the canneloni bites made me never want another toasted... More

Ate here for dinner while staying at Hilton Garden Inn next to STL airport. About a 5 min drive away. Good pasta and sandwich choices. I got a seafood pasta that was a bit heavy on the cream and cheesy side. Next time I would probably pick one of the sandwiches... a nearby diner had one and it looked like... More

Ive been going to this place for years. When i used to live in the neighborhood I would go 3 times a week. But you cant go wrong with anything on the menu. From the italian salad, rib eye sandwich, to the chicken Alfredo. Its all good. A place that you can go solo, take a date, or the whole... More

We stopped on the way to a performance as we had a little time to spare. Our visit was just beverages and an appetizer (the potato jackets). These were fine. This is a cafe adjacent to a college campus, so order what the students get and you probably will be satisfied.

Service is very slow and the food was horrible, no one in my family enjoyed it. Will never go back. It's one thing for one person in your party not to enjoy the food, but when everyone with you doesn't like that should say something. Very disappointed.

We saw this place on TripAdvisor when we were traveling through St. Louis and I'm glad we did. We ordered a hamburger and french fries and both were great. Plus the local people were very friendly as were the waitresses. Would recommend to anyone.
