We are obviously big fans of coffee houses. We had Tryst in D.C.; Spoons and Daily Grind in Baltimore; and about 7 places we love here in St. Louis! The Mud House is now one of them. Located on Cherokee Street in Benton Park, which is a very cool neighborhood with a lot of artsy types, it is the perfect destination to lose yourself… or maybe even get some work done!
We arrived on a Saturday morning at around 8:45, and though there was a line to order our food, there was plenty of seating (including outdoor!) so we had no problem finding a table. I checked out the decor while Andrew ordered our food and coffee.
The food was great! Oliver devoured a warm-from-the-oven cherry muffin, and Milo scarfed down a buttery chocolate chip scone. I stole bites from both, and they were delightful baked goods, if I do say so myself.
Unfortunately, the young man saved nothing for the platypus, citing, “He eats pah-yuh-pus food. He can’t have my muffin.”
Andrew and I split the black bean chili & egg burrito, which did not disappoint. This thing was awesome, stick-to-your-bones, just spicy enough, delicious breakfast food. I can’t wait to try something else on the menu. Oh, and the coffee is great too.
After all is said and done, help yourself to a book or magazine and relax on the couch. Milo highly recommends it.
