Cafe Ventana Restaurant Review

: This ambitious kitchen turns out three meals a day, plus snacks and a late-night menu. The order-at-the-counter lunch tends to be busy, but not chaotically so. Though the short menu doesn’t break much new ground, items frequently riff on a familiar dish, like the Cuban sandwich served as a wrap. The restaurant promotes itself as a New Orleans bistro, and it has the beignets to back up the claim. Along with first-rate coffee, Café Ventana also offers wine, beer and signature cocktails so good they’re a draw on their own. Cakes, pies, chocolates and pastries are available, but it’s hard to bypass those beignets. The café is on the small side, but the annex next door lets more Saint Louis University students spread out their books and study, more telecommuters hook up their laptops, and more moms park strollers for a leisurely klatsch.

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.
FRIEND, do you need an excellent place?
Then Cafe Ventana is the answer.
They have a nice patio if you have a larger group.
I have been there with my fellow students for study sessions and the think tank is a perfect accommodation.
Great prices and the best beignets outside of New Orleans. :D :)
