Nice lunch and coffee place

A nice place to grab lunch with friends in a casual setting. They offer fresh soup, salads and sandwiches - everything tastes good and flavorful. Outside seating is a plus on a warm spring day.

Companion is one of my favorite bakeries, but it combines that with a terrific breakfast and lunch menu. The owner is very involved and makes sure that her food is of the highest quality. Combine that with artistic talent/flair and award winning bread that is baked without the usual preservatives and you have a winning combination - no wonder it... More

With all the good Sunday morning options packed, my family and I decided to try Companion. Not sure which is more inefficient they guy taking the orders and making the sandwich's or the girl at the register. I waited in line for more than 20 minutes to place my order, which put me past noon when the breakfast menu ends.... More

This popular artisanal bake shop with branches in St. Louis' upscale neighborhoods, Clayton and Ladue, offer 1st class breads, desserts and creative sandwiches. Open for breakfast and lunch. The uniquely St. Louis baked treat, Gooey Butter Cake, is superb. A must try!

Stopped for a late lunch. Good sandwich and tomato soup and bread. A couple employees weren't particularly personable. Wanted to purchase some desserts and wanted a little guidance. Sandwich makers were nice. The friends we were with couldn't say enough about how nice the owners are. Would definitely return.

With so many better options nearby, hard to justify the price.Wish I could give this place 2.5 stars. Not low quality enough to justify 2, but a poor value. I don't even like this place when it's catering for my office, thereby free to me. Gun to head, I'd get the Frenchie, or better yet, shoot me and maybe you'll... More

Great sandwiches, salads and baked goods of mostly locally sourced foods. I have been here many times and it never disappoints for a casual lunch.

Curried Chicken Salad. Wow (I guess that was four words, but it is GOOD). Wonderful bakery items and outdoor seating when it's nice outside.

My wife and I decided to have breakfast at Companion since we had not been there in quite a while. The food was excellent, the baked egg dish is always delicious and their baked goods are outstanding. During our visit I recalled why we did not go to this restaurant more. The service leaves a lot to be desired. It... More

Best food, service is amazing. Paninis, salads, egg dishes, bakery goods all amazing. Only negative is the line out the door! Need maybe a better way to assemble/serve food.
