Café Madeleine Is a Beautiful Brunch Venue in Tower Grove Park

Café Madeleine Is a Beautiful Brunch Venue in Tower Grove Park

Sunday Brunch in Historic, Pond-side Café Madeleine

St. Louis, MO/April 27, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) – What could be better than Sunday brunch in beautiful park setting?  How about brunching amid ornamental palms in the oldest standing conservatory west of the Mississippi River?  Add that the conservatory spills out onto a lovely patio adjacent to charming lily ponds and surrounded by well-maintained gardens in the heart of the city.  Throw in one of the best caterers in town and a well-stocked bar, and you have the Sunday Brunch at Café Madeleine.

The cafe is a Sunday-only affair inside the Piper Palm House at Tower Grove Park. Every Sunday of the year guests can enjoy an upscale brunch in this unique, tranquil setting.  Constructed in 1878, the Palm House was designed by famed architect George I.  Barnett in the Italianate style and initially used to house Tower Grove Park’s more delicate plants during winter.  It’s the most historically significant building in the park, which is itself on the National Register of Historic Places, and a popular venue for private parties the other six days of the week.

Brunch at Café Madeleine is catered by the Butler’s Pantry, one of St. Louis’ premiere catering companies.  Founded by Richard Nix, Sr. and his wife Anita in 1966, this award-winning catering company has been helping St. Louis celebrate special moments with special meals for more than 50 years.  Now under the direction of Richard Nix, Jr, the Butler’s Pantry offers event catering.  In addition to Sunday Brunch at Café Madeleine, they also operate Bixby’s at the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park and Piccione Pastry, an Italian pastry shop at Skinker and Delmar that’s open late for Loop visitors.

The culinary staff at the Butler’s Pantry has developed a special menu of French-inspired dishes for Café Madeleine.  The buffet is created with fresh, seasonal produce and regional products.  That means each week brunch patrons will find a unique and fresh culinary experience.  The weekly brunch features an omelet station, fruit and cold salads, soup du jour, warm entrees, and a tempting dessert table—of course that includes their namesake dish, the traditional French Madeleine.  St. Louis diners rave about Café Madeleine’s attentive service, the beautiful setting, and the nice variety of well prepared foods available.  They especially like the Belgian waffles, the biscuits, the perfectly cooked pastas, delicate smoked salmon, and the speedy omelet station.  This brunch-only cafe is so popular, we gave them an honorable mention in our article: The Top 10 Brunch Spots Around St. Louis back in December.

Sunday brunch is offered year-round from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  Reservations are recommended and can be made online (http://cafemadeleinestl.com/reservations/) or by phone (314) 575-5658.  For adults, brunch is $24.75, for children 4-12 it’s $11.75, and children three and younger are free.  That includes the hot buffet, cold buffet, and dessert table.  Beverages are not included, but reasonably priced choices include coffee, tea, milk, juice, soda, a selection of specialty coffees like cappuccinos and lattes, as well as cocktails, wine, and champagne.  Besides the classic brunch cocktails like Mimosa and Bloody Mary, Cafe Madeleine also offers their version of a Bellini and a refreshing cocktail called the Lazy Maddie.  It’s made with cranberry, fresh squeezed orange juice and vodka.

Unfortunately, Café Madeleine’s Mother’s Day brunch has been fully booked for some time.  But customers can enjoy the beauty and hospitality of one of St. Louis’ most unique dining venues any other Sunday of the year.   And there’s a bonus: when the weather is nice, outside seating is available, offering diners the sumptuous brunch buffet and beautiful views of the lily ponds and surrounding gardens.

The Top 10 Brunch Spots Around St. Louis

Brunch Spots

Find the Perfect Place for that Perfect Meal – Brunch Spots

St. Louis, MO/December 26, 2016 (STLRestaurant.News) – Brunch Spots – Many consider it the best meal of the day: brunch. St. Louis loves brunch and there are terrific places to get this old English “hangover cure” all over the metro area.  The choices run from simple bakery cafes and coffee shops to fine dining establishments.  There are scores of restaurants around town that offer brunch every weekend.  Some even offer it every day.  We wanted to know who does it best, so we did what we always do to find the best: we turned to customer reviews.

According to the folks who brunch around St. Louis, the best can be found in the city’s historic Benton Park neighborhood at The Mud House, 2101 Cherokee Street, St. Louis.  That didn’t come as a big surprise, since they’re already known as a great place for coffee, and for breakfast or lunch.  In fact, The Mud House topped our list of the best Internet cafes in St. Louis.

The Mud House’s casual, but sophisticated menu was created by Chef Chris Bork, and it has brunch written all over it.  They offer some of the most delicious breakfast sandwiches in town, all served on fresh ciabatta with a side of dressed greens.  Their English Breakfast may be the ultimate brunch choice.  It’s two sunny eggs with sautéed mushrooms and greens, baked beans, bacon, toast and jam.  You can make that vegan by subbing Match Soy Chorizo if you like.  Of course their famous Mud Slinger is a great brunch option too.  It’s roasted potatoes smothered with vegetarian black bean chili, cheddar, and red onion topped with two sunny eggs.  It comes with toast.  You can add bacon or ham, or truffled French onion dip if you like.  They also offer a Vegan Slinger made with tofu scramble and olive oil toast.  There’s also French toast with apple compote & spiced mascarpone, biscuits & gravy, grits, grilled cheese, daily quiche specials and “Dat Hash” topped with poached eggs.

Owners Casey and Jeremy Miller have kept the focus on locally sourced ingredients, expertly prepared and served in relaxing environment.  That includes the coffee.  There are cappuccinos, lattes, macchiatos, and cold brews.  You’ll also find some thoughtful, surprising combinations like the Rosemary & Honey Latte.  Make yours vegan by choosing almond, hemp, or soy milks.  They also offer some nice selections from St. Louis’ Retrailer Tea Company, and from Kilogram Tea of Chicago.  All that, plus free Wi-Fi! Bonus: The Mud House will be open and serving brunch on New Year’s Day starting at 10:00 a.m!

Since some of us don’t think it’s brunch without a Mimosa or Bloody Mary on the menu, we’ve noted which of the restaurants on our list serve alcohol, and which don’t.  Not all are open New Year’s Day, but they all do offer brunch on a regular basis.  So here are the best places to get brunch in St. Louis according to customers:
