  1. sherry,
    I've replied on your other thread. One thought, if you are seeking a quick breakfast with good coffee, is the St. Louis Bread Co. on Central, between Carondelet and Forsyth. They make some breakfast egg & meat biscuits, have good pastries, and good coffee. They also have sandwiches and salads, fruit cups, juice, bagels, milk, etc.

    1. You can also take this opportunity to explore the Central West End, home to Wash U's Medical School and a short (very short) drive from the Hilltop Campus. It's past campus if you are coming from Clayton but worth checking out. It's been awhile but I used to love breakfast at the Majestic Cafe which is an eclectic diner/bar that serves good, basic breakfast and a great gyro at lunch and dinner. The CWE is fun to explore, a slice of old world style in an area that is home to hospitals, businesses and homes and apartments.

        We still enjoy breakfast at the Majestic. There is also a Lebanese cafe on Euclid, just south of Laclede, that has middle Eastern food & coffee & pastries. Wash U. has a free shuttle from the main campus to the med school/Barnes-Jewish Hospital. I'd bet if you ask, Wash U. will let you ride the shuttle, or give you a Metro-Link (light-rail) pass, to the Central West End. Wash U. is one of THE most accomodating schools for potential students and parents. p.j.

            Hi Sherry- sorry, I keep thinking of other options. If you want to go to a place that is likely to have students, and is a student hangout during the school year, you should try Kayak's, which is a "northwoods" themed coffee shop, just northeast of the main campus, at Skinker and Millbrook, (which changes to Forest Park Parkway at that corner). There is a Metrolink stop right there.
            The Wash U. kids are always studying at Kayak's, which has wi-fi. They like the "Bread Co." too.
            Have a safe trip to STL. The weather will be just as you hoped, warm and muggy.
