Best Brunches in STL

Every weekend, herds of WashU students set out in search of the perfect weekend brunch spot. On those lazy weekends it’s usually the village, Kayak’s, or BD. Just kidding! BD brunch doesn’t exist anymore (but we secretly kind of wish it did even though it took all our meal points). You might be thinking though…what about those weekends when you’re feeling adventurous? Here are some of my favorite spots and some spots that are still on my bucket list!

Winslow’s Home

The atmosphere inside is very homey and aesthetically pleasing. Also, the food is delicious!! They even have a cute separate coffee bar to order drinks. Coffee is always a must.


Café Osage

They have a gorgeous greenhouse with flowers, trees, succulents, and other plants for sale. In the greenhouse attached to the café, there are also clothes, jewelry, and other fun things for sale. If you decide to go on the weekend though, make sure to call ahead and make a reservation!

Okay, I have a confession to make…I haven’t been to Rooster yet, but it’s on my bucket list! However, all of my friends absolutely rave about it, and the décor looks super fun. Go check it out! Maybe I’ll see you there. :)


City Coffeehouse and Creperie

My personal favorite is the Nutella and banana classic crepe. You really can’t do much better. If you’re in a healthy mood though, you can’t go wrong with their avocado toast, which is super pretty and super tasty. If you go during the warmer months you can sit in their open terrace area, which reminds me of Paris! One of my favorite spots in St. Louis!!


First Watch
