"Café Ventana brings to Saint Louis the look and feel of a French Quarter bistro while offering deliciously comfortable foods. From French style beignets to incredible locally roasted coffee to delectable sandwiches, salads and soups, dining at Café Ventana is truly a culinary experience. Their irresistible beignets are made fresh to order using their hand-crafted recipe, bringing everyone’s favorite New Orleans treat directly to the heart of St. Louis. Small batches of coffee are professionally roasted twice a week by their favorite java guru, Eric Schaefer, using his artisan’s choice Probat roaster. Their selection of appetizer plates, salads, soups, sandwiches and incredible desserts are gourmet fare, hand-crafted using the freshest and most locally produced ingredients available. They enjoy supporting their local cultural treasures with small art exhibitions and live locally grown music. They created a relaxing environment that features gas lanterns and antique chandeliers from New Orleans, reclaimed antique doors from the French Quarter, a beautiful Italian fountain in their cobblestone alley (laid with reclaimed brick from the St. Louis Riverfront), a stone hearth firepla
