Stratton’s Cafe: A far better breakfast than you’d expect in the shadow of the Ritz Carlton. I had a truly excellent breakfast burrito; biscuits and gravy were quality too.
La Vallesana: Tiny dive of a restaurant in St. Louis’ Mexican-dominated Cherokee Street. Well-worth the trip south on Jefferson. Great tacos, unparalleled people-watching, low wallet-impact.
Llywelyn’s: Had a couple here come completely unglued on my for propping my feet up in a chair. On plastic lawn chairs in the deserted beer garden outside. Amongst the bird droppings and Bambino’s-level formality. Almost fisticuffs, no joke. The fish and chips were forgettable.
The City Museum: Amazing climbing/mayhem center. A truly kickass place for kids. Without kids in tow, it’s a monument to $24 very poorly spent.
