Frothy Friday in St. Louis

Frothy Friday in St. Louis

Are you following me on Instagram? If so, you've seen my #HBLFrothyFriday Series: My mission to find my favorite coffee shop in St. Louis (plus a sneak peek at my current read.) Well, I've done over 20 of these posts so I thought it was about time I compile them on the blog so you can visit some of my favorite coffee shops. Disclaimer: I'm a self-proclaimed coffee snob (which is why you won't see many three stars) but I also hate rating things. So the worst "score" I can give is "It was okay." The coffee shops are listed in the order I visited them, with the most recent at the top of the page. To cut to the chase, I'll list my top picks here:

  1. Sump Coffee | 3700 S Jefferson Ave, St. Louis, MO 63118
  2. Blueprint Coffee | 6225 Delmar Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63130
  3. Rise Coffee House | 4176 Manchester Ave, St. Louis, MO 63110
  4. Kayak's by Kaldi's Coffee | 270 North Skinker Blvd, St. Louis, MO 63130
  5. Half and Half | 8135 Maryland Ave, Clayton, MO 63105
  6. VB Coffee | 5326 State Highway N, Cottleville, MO 63304

Three Star Rating System:

* = It was okay

** = I liked it

*** = I loved it

Color Codes:

Blue = on my list to visit

Red = been there, done that
