Love the taste of the coffee, but you also can get a shot of liquor! Obviously you have to stay on the grounds to drink it, but it certainly makes people watching from the patio a little more fun!

Great selection of coffee and other snacks, good place to study and people watch if you are new to the area. Staff is helpful but not too chatty.

Great food and pretty good coffee. It's also a good, quite place to study at with a free wifi access. During the summer its good to set outside. The only bad thing about it is it's not that clean.

It's probably my age, but I still believe customers should be greeted, or at least glanced at, when they approach a counter looking for direction. Since this was my first visit, I truly needed to know simple things, like where to go to order! The counter top is shoulder level for me (admittedly a short person) and runs the full... More

Local cafe is a good place to hang out. We were there on a Tuesday evening, after dinner, meeting up with some out of town friends. It was quiet enough to be able to enjoy conversation and the variety of drinks we all enjoyed was great. They had a really nice selection of desserts, so a good place to grab... More

I've got a lot of history with Coffee Cartel -- it was a favorite place of mine to study during my college years in STL. During a recent visit, I went back, and I was pleased to discover that Coffee Cartel has retained its great neighborhood character. The staff is very nice, although service can be a bit slow if...

Coffee Cartel was a quick walk from my friends appartment while I stayed in the Lou. The coffee was great and the breakfast sandwiches we made to order- with real cheese. I also noticed on their pick-up window wall that the business supports a lot of local charity drives and donations. Good work from a great coffee shop!
