Vivace has the best coffee in SLU. Plus, they have a nice bar that faces the window, so if you work in the area, instead of grabbing some fruit from the free banana stand to procrastinate, come here and people watch instead. Even though the Capitol Hill location is more vibrant, this one’s great if you want to meet up with your friends who are in town.

Suggested by our writers
Bakery Nouveau is an excellent Capitol Hill bakery we like most for the twice baked almond croissant and croque monsieur.
Mr. West Cafe Bar
Mr. West Cafe is an attractive espresso bar and all day cafe with substantial food downtown.
We avoid superlatives, but Vivace probably makes the best espresso in the city. Hit the Capitol Hill location for its proximity to Sunrise Tacos.
