Save room for dessert!

Remember this is a restauraant and a bakery. My favorite appetizers are the goat cheese tart or the wild mushroom tart. The entrees are usually quite simple, but very nice. And the desserts are to die for. There are always some desserts on the menu and a dozen others in the display case. If... read more

Owners are clearly bored and not interested in owning a restaurant. Tacky décor, rude condescending waiter and severely overpriced nothing special skimpy food. Hey, if you are going to offer window seating - CLEAN THE WINDOW. Booth seating is very uncomfortable. Two award winning desserts - 1993 & 1995 is a generation ago and isn't a selling point today. Come... More

A great place to have lunch and, of course, super deserts! A nice range of offerings and all seemed delicious.

My husband and I went to Cravings on 03/29/14 at approximately 3:00pm. We enjoy searching for small local businesses to support and decided we would try Cravings for an afternoon treat. I have never been made to feel like I was so "beneath" someone in all of my life! The customer service was terrible. I even commented on how good... More

I had heard great things about Cravings and one weekend I decided to try it with a friend. The restaurant itself is super cute and the tables are spacious and the view by the window is nice. The menu was diverse and we were able to easily find something that we both wanted. I had the chicken salad sandwich and... More

Phenomenal in every respect . I actually hired Mr Brennan to cater a brunch and it was just excellent in every way. What a treasure he is and how fortunate we are to have him in St Louis

Lunch was good but not great. Met a friend here before seeing a show at the rep.. Our waiter was totally clueless. I asked him about a couple of items on the menu and he actually took the menu from me to try and find the answer.

We had a terrific dinner with friends at Cravings last night. Cravings was suggested as a dessert destination for us but, after reading their menu on line we decided to have dinner there also. Everyone in our group was pleasantly surprised by the wonderful food and absolutely amazing desserts. Our 2 appetizers (Spanakopita and Thai pot stickers) were very flavorful... More

My husband and I decided to try out Cravings for the first time tonight to celebrate his birthday. We live right around the corner and have read many wonderful reviews about this establishment. So it was much to our surprise that it was a negative experience. First of all, when we arrived, no one greeted us. Once we sat down... More

Homemade good food, always fresh. Soups are unusual combinations and tasty. But the desserts are the star of the place. Chocolate cake with cranberry and raspberry. Lemon tarts. Hazelnut torte. Carrot cake. Oh yeah....
