    Adjacent to St. Louis university campus, I found Cafe Ventana. Being a student and centrally located to my housing, I gave it a try. A great combo coffee house and DELICIOUS SOFT MEALS. AWESOME

    Love this cafe. Great food - as a coffee snob, I'll say that there is better coffee around, but the ambiance, food, pastries, and everything else is on point. Certainly worth checking out.

    Best beignets in town. The food is great too. Solid options for vegetarians, not so much for vegans. Veggie omelette was tasty and filling.

    Here you can have a light lunch of excellent lobster bisque, sip a cappuccino while you study for the LSAT or even blot out a bad day with real-deal absinthe.http://bit.ly/16vE80T

    This place is awesome! My favorite place to study in stl. Internet can be a little sketchy at times but the environment, decor, music, great coffee etc etc etc totally make up for it. Love it!

    Love this place, except WiFi sucks (just won't load some sites). Food, coffee, and atmosphere are great, just not a place I can get actual work done. Great for relaxing though.

    Sure, you can caffeinate at Cafe Ventana, but you can also brunch, booze and stave off boredom with trivia, movie nights and live music. Leer más

    Rosemary's Baby is just...oh, my. So so so good (rosemary + honey), and the blueberry muffin is the best I've found anywhere.

    Pay attention to what you buy. Stuff adds up quicker than it should. Can you say overpriced?? Still good stuff though. Also, check out the Yelp check-in to get free beignets when you order $10 or more

    Go out of my way to come here when I'm in the area. Great food selections but they're always out of stuff. Service is slow but the coffee's worth it.

    As everyone says, DO get a beignet, chocolate required. The Mexican beignet w/ the Mexican hot chocolate is tasty. Greek salad is very good. Signature crab cakes are unique and great.

    Saturdays and Sundays order the biscuits and gravy. It's out of this world. (If it isn't listed on the menu just ask)

    They have some really cool lattes, but the actual prep is hit or miss. Sometimes they're fabulous... Sometimes not. Great food, though!

    Go in the 2nd building and work in one of the "Think Tanks". It's quiet, and the solitude will help you get stuff done more.

    Good study spot, but the WiFi will periodically kick you off if you're using a VPN.

    No lie: after the apple & Brie grilled sandwich, I had a gall bladder attack & went to the hospital for surgery. I don't necessarily blame the fatty delicious sandwich...
