This is my favorite cafe in St. Louis. The old bank building with its high ceilings, the plants, and the window seats give it a wonderfully cozy feel. The coffee is good and so is the food--mostly "treats" like muffins and scones, but also quiche...More

Most coffee houses are pretty standard. I don't understand why Shaw's lists 10 coffees but only serves three on any given day. Coffee and ambiance were good, offerings were too limited.

We are so glad you enjoyed your drinks! We roast our coffees darker than most, in what we call a "mid-west coast" style because we enjoy it roasted that way, as well. And the building is listed on the National Register of Historic places. Thank...More

Coffee snd pastries were excellent. Books and papers scattered about for patrons. Eclectic furniture, high celings, glass walls, easy on-street parking, and you can sit in a bank vault. What more do you want?

You can enjoy your coffee sitting in the old vault (we didn't). Coffee is great. The only thing missing were some Italian biscotti (you'd think those would be available in a coffee shop in "The Hill").

Located in St. Louis On "The Hill," Shaw’s Coffee, LTD, is privately owned and has a strong commitment to quality and service. Our passion is coffee. We work hard at every step of the process to ensure that your coffee drinking experience is rich and pleasurable. We work closely with our importer to find the most unique green beans sourced from the world’s three major coffee growing regions - the Americas, Africa, and the Pacific Rim. We roast throughout the week to ensure our coffees are as fresh as possible for serving and shipping. Our coffees are dark-roasted in a traditional European style, similar to many gourmet roasters from the West Coast, which gives our coffees the signature strong flavor and rich aroma our customers know and love. In our shop we serve espresso, made with our Italian Roast espresso blend, traditional lattes and cappuccinos, freshly brewed drip coffee, and French press service. We also offer a variety of house-made pastries, breakfast items & sweets.
