New in the Lou v.2

Feb 9, 2016

I love supporting local and checking out new spots in my city - restaurants, breweries, shops, or events. As you would expect, the New in the Lou series is one to showcase new or coming soon spots in St. Louis.

Featuring :: Companion West Campus

This spot opened last Tuesday to the public. (They moved their baking facility there late in 2015 and now have the cafe component up and running).
When I moved to this area, one thing I noticed was the lack of coffee shops or brunch spots. This Companion location fills that void in a very impactful way. I've already been twice in the past week and will definitely be a regular.

The Companion cafes have a pretty vast menu {see it here}I've dined at their Clayton cafe location a few times for lunch and am always pleasantly pleased with the pricing, offerings and quality. So far at the West campus I've had iced lattes (brewing Kaldis) and a new donut!

If you're local to St. Louis, you should definitely visit this location. They will have cooking classes starting this Spring too -- hello date/girls night!

  1. Sign me up for a cooking class! This place looks cute. I'll definitely have to try it out!

    1. It is! You should go for lunch. When they release the classes we will have to sign up!

  2. My husband and I are big supporters of local too! We are in Virginia, but I grew up in Kansas, so not too far away! Thanks for the peak back back home at the midwest, and for linking up with us at Country Fair Blog Party! Please pop back in and post with us again , we'd love to have you! Jan @ Tip Garden!
