Saint Louis Date Idea: The Mud House

Our trip to St. Louis is winding down and before we know it we’ll be saying our goodbyes. My least favorite part about coming home.

But before we leave, we had to share our newest discovery. It’s absolutely perfect for a date! The spot is called The Mud House and it’s located on the famous Cherokee Street in St. Louis. It’s technically a coffee house, but their food menu makes it so much more. Vitaliy enjoyed their soup-of-the-day a few times, and I was completely hooked on their Mushroom Reuben sandwich. However, I’m a total sucker for breakfast, so one of the days we worked there I enjoyed their famous French Toast which was to-die-for.

Besides the great food, my top two reasons why this would be a great spot for a date is the atmosphere and the neighborhood. Let me explain.

If you’re going to go on a date, you want to take him/her somewhere unique. The Mud House has a bicycle hanging from the wall. Does it get anymore interesting? Their décor has a total vintage/hipster vibe and you can’t help but want to walk around and enjoy all the art on your way to your table. Not to mention, their restroom is covered in old board games. You can trust that any location that takes the time to design their restroom knows how to pay attention to detail in every way.

But to get the most out of your experience to The Mud House, grab your coffee to go and enjoy stepping back in time as you stroll Cherokee Street hand in hand. There are tons of little shops and bakeries to enjoy. But be sure not to miss the plaques telling the old stories of the families of Cherokee Street. There is so much history in this quaint little neighborhood.

The Mud House is definitely a new St. Louis favorite of ours. If you live in the area or are planning a visit, be sure to check it out! Here are a few other St. Louis staples that we never miss when coming to town.
