We always enjoy a visit to Kayak's when we are in St. Louis. The coffee is fantastic, food is delicious and the staff are friendly. My son highly recommends the chocolate chip French toast.

Currently sitting here watching the traffic eating a delicious breakfast pizza (one of the best I've ever had even without meat) and a matcha tea. Great atmosphere and friendly workers. Not too busy either.

Kayaks sits across from the university (one of them, at any rate), and next to the Metro station (Skinker), on the corner by Forest Park. Coffee and food is reasonable, and there's usually space to sit, despite being in a busy location. Features outdoor seating...More
