Places To Pick Up A Cup: Coffeehouses in Clayton

If your morning ritual takes you through Clayton and requires a cup to get your day started right, or if a mid-day pick-me-up is in order, check out these options for a strong brew and a tasty bite:

Kaldi’s Coffee | 700 DeMun Ave or 187 Carondelet Plaza

One of Missouri’s most popular coffee roasters, St. Louis’ own Kaldi’s brews locally in multiple locations, including two in Clayton. They pride themselves on crafting the perfect cup using sustainable business practices, with a great selection of single origin coffees and specialty blends, many of which are fair trade and organic. Try an option from the espresso bar; a drip, cold brewed, or hand brewed coffee; or a Firepot tea. A great selection of traditional breakfast foods with a twist round out the menu.

Half & Half | 8135 Maryland Ave

Half & Half features a special selection of locally roasted Blueprint Coffee in a variety of preparations, including auto-drip, cold brew, and espresso. Also try the guest roast from Mountain Air in Asheville, NC, in bags or as a pour-over. If coffee’s not your speed, they also have fresh squeeze orange juice, a selection of loose leaf teas, and chai tea latte. Grab a bite of granola with milk and berries, cage-free eggs benedict, or blueberry pancakes for breakfast.

City Coffeehouse & Crêperie | 36 N. Brentwood Blvd

At St. Louis’ original crêperie, the menu goes beyond pages of delicious sweet and savory crepes. They offer a variety of brews ranging from classic espresso, café au lait, Americano, and cappuccino to a multitude of lattes (mocha, white mocha, tuxedo, red velvet, and iced). You can also purchase your favorite roast in bulk, or try a specialty tea, seasonal juice or cider, or brunch-time cocktail.
