ST. LOUIS – We’ve got you covered if you’re looking for somewhere to brunch this weekend.

Every Friday for ‘What’s Cookin’ in the Lou – 5 On Your Side will feature a brunch spot!

Rooster is one of St. Louis’ favorite spots to brunch. You can find the restaurant downtown on Locust Street or along S. Grand Blvd.

The European-style urban café specializes in crepes, sandwiches and brunch along with coffee, craft beer and cocktails including their award-winning bloody marys. Their bloody marys are made with 17 secret ingredients. Their farm-to-table mission is something they highly value, the restaurant said. They partner with local farms in Missouri and the surrounding Midwest region.

‘Thanks to them, our eggs, meat and produce are fresh, ethically raised, and locally sourced whenever possible. Even more exciting, we grow and utilize our own produce, herbs, and flowers from our very own urban Micro Farm located in the Gate District near Lafayette Square, managed by Baileys Restaurant’s in-house farmer, Will Erker.’

Rooster has four stars on Yelp and over 1,000 reviews.

“The slinger has been my favorite so far with the andouille, but the MO sausage crepes are also drool-worthy.” One Yelper said.

Another Yelper would fly in from Atlanta just to eat at Rooster.

"I went in for breakfast and OMG I I am so glad I did. The banana nut pancakes are to die for. You have to try them. I would get on a plane from Atlanta just to have them for breakfast."

Rooster’s downtown location is open every day at 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. and South Grand is open 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.


Brunch is the best part of the weekend! It’s a meal eaten late in the morning that is a combo of breakfast and lunch – or when you sleep in too late and don’t feel right calling your first meal breakfast, ha.
