source, roast and brew delicous coffees.
Vanilla latte was just right, not too sweet.
Lovely little coffee shop to stop for a cup of coffee and nice sandwiches. Dessert display is pretty impressive.
This place is a staple for me. Try the chai, it's delicious.
This place is usually crowded with Wash U students but if you find a spot, the ambience is great. Great Kaldi's coffee too.
Every omelet is delicious every time.
Coffee is amazing
Location is the best thing about this place, parking is the worst. Everything else is in be tween.
Great coffee and toasted sandwiches
In most recent few months, the service has improved and I've been able to order a banana chocolate peanut butter milkshake and it tasted amazing! I will keep coming back just for that!
Great coffee and pastries.
Order the Mayan Mocha. Always.
Vegetarian seal of approval! Cortina sandwich (marinated portabellas)
This place would be more accessible to non-Wash U students if the parking situation were better. The meters in the lot are enforced 24/7, so prepare for a possible ticket.
Each time I get carry out (cold wrap) my order seems to get longer. Shouldn't have to put 30 min on the meter.
Love their PB&J with a big cup of Joe.
Try the "dirty" chai by adding a shot of espresso. Delicious!
The traditional cappuccino might be the absolute best way to sample the coffee of the month.
The mochas are addicting. Prepare yourself for at least two.
Food is good, nice selection. Coffee is Kaldis which I enjoy. There is not much room to sit. A few 2-3 person tables which are occupied by college students who sit for hours.
Not sure what all the hype is about... Staff are annoyed, customers are loud, weird set up to order/pick-up. I felt very tense in the super sunny interior without shades. Get all to go and get out!
It's overpriced and there are often condescending workers, like many cafes in St. Louis. Unlike other cafes, however, the men's bathroom in Kayak's has a black toilet, so enjoy that.
The new Zurich sandwich is really good.
Get the table by the fire place in the back! It has comfy chairs. Also get some coffee!!
Internet connection questionable ....
For a coffee house, the pizza ain't bad!
They don't do free refills, so ask for coffee in a paper cup so you can keep it warm with a lid. Refills are available for about a buck.
A coffee shop without wireless internet is like Burt without Ernie. Please get a new router. :(
French toast & Northwoods salad are both great. So is the coffee
My old tip can be partially discounted, as I was a mocha drinker at that time. Since then, I've grown to enjoy coffee, and have found that I like the Kaldi's at Kayak's more than the old Alterra.
Not big enough to fit anything if you want to meet a group of friends here :(
Bring plenty of quarters for the metered parking lot behind the building even on the weekends...they require feeding 24/7. Food - try the Cortina sandwich or Durango wrap. Both are great!
The pumpkin pie latte is glorious! Try it while it's still in season
This isn't the right location to check into.
Pick up a sarah speaks easy fanpack from the front window for 4 free pageant tickets and a bumper sticker!
Honey wheat bagel is sooo good. Get with butter not cream cheese ( coming from a cream cheese fanatic)
Try the cowboy omelet its amazinly good
Get the sicilian omlet muthafuckas
Try their "World Tour" rotating single origin. It can be a delightful treat, especially brewed as espresso.
Now open til 10 every night!!!
Their Gooey butter and vanilla latte = pure bliss.
Try the Ethiopian dama yirgocheffe - the November espresso of the month. Great in a traditional latte, capp, or macchiato!
The vanilla mint tea is amazing!
Try the new Rwandan espresso - October's World Tour Coffee! Tangy and bright!
Chicken curry sandwich is awesome. Gotta try it!
Hours til 9 on weekdays and 10 on weekends again!
Contrary to what's on here, I think Kayak's has definitely had an upswing now that it's under Kaldi's. Try the Chemex for a smoother coffee and some great sandwiches like the Aspen - light and healthy
Definitely overrated. Their pastries are alright, but the rest--coffee, sandwich, breakfast menu and etc--are subpar.
Per Don K., the Alterra served at kayak gave them a very different flavor than any other coffee shop in St. Louis. I like kaldi's coffee, but for my girlfriend they changed for the worse.
They close at 7 pm, contrary to popular belief that they close at 11. Found this out the hard way. Twice.
