My wife and I tripped into this cafe on a Friday evening to try out their beignets and a cup of coffee. It was a good decision. Very mindful of New Orleans. The coffee was superb. We doubled back the following morning to try out their breakfast options and to buy a pound of their coffee. They have taken a... More

Went with my wife and daughter for dinner. Food was yummy, and chips were served fresh and hot. I liked that they had craft beers as well as their coffee drink offerings. We had beignet sliders that were very good and unique. Would definitely recommend to family and friends!

When we arrived there was a cloud of grease in the air..I assume from the fresh beignets they sell. I had an interesting sandwich with carmelized apples and brie served with house made potato chips. The chips were underseasoned but the sandwich was delicious.

Reserved a small side room for a meeting. 3 different conversations with management. Never mentioned any charge for the room. When we showed up a Surly staff demanded $80 from a not for profit for a 1.5 hour meeting AND complained when I asked for a glass of ice to go with my warm $2.50 bottle of diet Coke! Go... More

This use to be a great coffee/cafe. Now there are few choices on the menu, they were out of many items. The green tea looked and tasted like the bag was swirled once to save flavor for next customer. It felt and looked dirty, restroom in poor shape. I would not recommend.

This place is an excellent standby for SLU students or any CWE locals really. Service is excellent, the food is tasty, and the atmosphere is fun and varied. There is bar style seating along window ledges, there are hi-boy tables and chairs, there are standard chairs and tables, there is plenty of seating in both the front and back patio,... More

Great place to grab a coffee, conversation or study. Can get crowded and cozy--like the different chairs. Deck out back also

Just adjacent to St. Louis university campus cafe Ventata is perfect for both students and locals. A great combo coffee house and easy meals. Great prices and best beignets in St. Louis. They have a nice patio if you have a larger group. We have had a few family celebrations here. Check out calendar for live music.
