I had a delicious French toast and glass of orange juice here for brunch. The food came very quickly and the staff really friendly and and the cafe had a really nice cosy atmosphere.

Near the St. Louis University campus, Cafe Ventana is a relaxing environment with comfy chairs, tables, and a good selection of coffee and sandwiches. The back patio is superb. I spent two hours there enjoying the fresh air and wonderful coffee. Worth the visit.

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...More
