My wife and I, visiting St. Louis, went here for breakfast on a Sunday morning because TripAdvisor said it would be open - it was not. Double check by calling before you waste the drive.

Not only are they friendly but the food is awesome. I had the pleasure of eating breakfast here thanks to Roamin Rich's youtube channel telling about it. I liked being able to sit & watch them cook my food & it was delivered steaming hot....More
