    I have come here for years and years. It just gets better. I make sure now to stop in every time I am in Saint Louis. They have everything from coffee to ice cream to food. Open 24 hours a day.

    Not a bad day for Black Friday. The white chocolate caramel latte w/ soy hit the spot on a day where I wore layers. Good atmosphere & a large menu. A lot of options. Get the coffee.

    Though known for coffee, you can also buy sandwiches, smoothies, frappes, milkshakes, donuts, gourmet chocolate bars, truffles, bottled juice, ice cream, nachos...lots of stuff.

    The Cartel is open 24/7, and its CWE neighbors take round-the-clock advantage of that, making the place a primo spot for nighttime people-watching. Read more

    Newspapers aren't sold here but, if you come in early (before 10am, usually), across the street, Tony's newsstand sells all kinds of newspapers and magazines. He also has dog treats for your pups!

    The red pepper hummus, pesto, curry mayo, and chicken salad are all made in house! Also, the pesto is made without pine nuts, if you have an allergy to them. Yay!

    A great place to come if you get off work at 2 am, like I do. Large variety of House Special lattes, a combo/mixture for every taste. I'm trying them all!

    Leave yourself time to find parking, as it's always packed in CWE weekend nights. CC is open 24 hours, and they sell that St. Louis fav--gooey butter cake :)

    Best part is that they are open 24 hrs. But expect to wait in line. Reminds me of South Carolina: SLOW! If u want a quick and reliable coffee, go to Starbucks across the st.

    Best Coffee in St. Louis. I could go here every single day and never get sick of it. Plus, the people watching is great on Fri/Sat. nights!

    AJ might be the raspberry truffle (my nickname for her) on staff but the Raspberry Truffle latte on the house special menu is also incredible!

    There's a quarter machine in the backroom, next to the restrooms, if you need quarters for the meters. Dennis, the owner, is always one step ahead of your needs.

    Booze coffee and great food. Actual coffee or espresso drinks kind of suck. Great late night place, since they're open 24/7. Wifi.

    The only place in the hood for late night eats. Food took FOREVER but it was so, so good. Lots of people making out in line too. So there's that.

    Not my favorite place to dine in. But love grabbing a coffee and sitting outside on a cool Spring or Fall evening. It's an institution in these parts.

    Put your cell phones on vibrate so that when you put your earbuds in, your high-pitched text alerts don't irritate the hell out of the staff and fellow customers. Common courtesy!

    Remember that you can't get alcoholic drinks to go so if you want something alcoholic you'll have to sit and enjoy it

    Well, it's about the only option for sit down coffee after midnight. I've never been impressed with their espresso, and the service is slow. Be prepared to wait, overpay, and not enjoy your coffee.
