Description: Winslow's Home is a decidedly relaxed atmosphere that serves some seriously great things. We are at once a cafe, espresso bar, bakery and private events space set in the middle of a contemporary general store. While breakfast and lunch orders are taken at the counter and then delivered to your table, dinner offers our guests the opportunity to unwind a bit through the transition to table service after 5pm. The relaxed and warm setting offer interior and seasonal patio options and our loyal customers are as diverse as our menu. We are located in the vibrant historic neighborhood of University City Missouri, an inner suburb of St Louis. Centrally located, we are roughly 3 blocks from Washington University, 4 blocks from downtown Clayton, 7 miles from the arch and the Mississippi River and 12 miles from the airport. Winslow's Home owns and operates a working farm in Augusta Mo. 35 miles from Winslows Home. Here we grow seasonal produce herbs, fruit and flowers using organic and biodynamic methods. This allows our team of chefs to craft some of the best fresh scratch cooking in the region. Deliveries from farm to fork happen 2-3 times a week, 10-11 months a year. The farm also hosts private events. Awards in the recent past by regional and national press include continued inclusion in "best of" lists, best artisan food shop, best breakfast, best carry out, best chocolate chip cookie, best farm to table restaurant, best grass fed beef burger, best cafe, best place to bring out of towners and best sandwich. Winslows Cellar is our events space. entering through Winslows Home, the Cellar is a secret jewel that offers our private dining guests an elevated Winslows experience. The space is an intimate, mahogany paneled room featuring private restrooms, original artwork, and oriental rugs. Seating 36, the Cellar features a lounge area, full bar, presentation and sound systems. This unique space is an ideal setting for private celebrations and business meetings alike. Menus are all individually customized by our team of professionals.

“Good down home cooking !!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

I had the pleasure of visiting this restaurant a few times last year while visiting the area... The location reminds me of a soda fountain shop I used to go to when young, now I mean that in a very good way. The atmosphere is very homey and in a word "inviting". The food is great!!! I have had both breakfast and lunch at this location and both were wonderful. The breakfast is very bountiful and a great start to your day. The lunches were just as good,fresh and delicious. If you are in the area make an attempt to stop by,you wont be disappointed...

“Great pulled pork”
Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

I visit here often and have never tried anything except the pulled pork sandwich. It is served with a small salad that is simple but tasty. The pork is very flavorful and comes with "white BBQ sauce". I could almost eat the sauce with a spoon. I took off a point because its a weird set up. Its confusing when you walk in as to where you should go and I'm annoyed by the real house wives of Clayton hanging out for hours on end at some of the rather closely spaced tables. It's a unique place, but the food is great.

Reviewed February 8, 2013 via mobile

A great well executed interior mercantile store with a good deli. Brisket was excellent and the Beefteck burger delicious. Wide variety of unusual sodas and drinks, wine room too, you will enjoy!

“Pleasant Afternoon”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

visited Winslow's Home for the first time on an unseasonably warm Jan day which permitted outdoor seating. The atmosphere is pleasant and the staff was very friendly. The ordering counter in the back of the establishment (adjacent to the kitchen) had the menu posted on white boards (paper copies were also availabe.) The counter also contained/displayed the available dessert options. Breakfast all day was an excellent choice as was the chicken sandwich and quiche. Servings were ample and the side salad with the sandwich was a good choice. Desserts were large and tasty. The items available for sale in the store provided a pleasant atmosphere and an opportunity to stretch your legs between the meal and dessert.

“For Guests. For Me!”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I am constantly on the lookout for the perfect place for breakfast. Winslow’s Home is my second home for breakfast. You can ride your bike here (racks on the walls above where the cars park) and linger outside in warm weather. Inside is inviting and novel given the General Store flavor. The menu is limited but they do what they offer very well. From the warm, large coffee up to the breakfast served piping hot, I couldn’t replicate this experience at home. This is THE place I bring guests when I am taking clients or friends out for breakfast. Everyone enjoys browsing through the store and seeing the wonderful things to eat as well as items you know you will use and enjoy at home.
