St. Louis, Missouri
As I’m writing this post, I’m stuck in Illinois traffic with my Mom and three younger sisters. So, what better time to write a blog post?
We stopped at The Mud House in downtown St. Louis. It’s kind of a sketchy part of town, but we survived. It’s the quirkiest coffee shop I’ve been to yet. It’s tiny and crowded, not a very good place for someone who can’t handle tight spaces.
Now, on to the coffee…
We ordered a Lavender Latte, a Rosemary Honey Latte and a Chai. The chai was good, but not what I’m here to review.
The Lavender Latte was good, slightly sweet with a very subtle lavender flavor. It wasn’t as floral tasting as I had expected.
Rosemary Honey Latte
Now, this was amazing. I wasn’t sure what I would think about the rosemary with espresso, but I was taken by surprise with how good it was. It had a very earthy, rosemary taste, and that slight burn that honey gives you. It was much sweeter than the lavender. As much as I liked it, I did realize that taste of the actual espresso was kind of lost.
Lots of books to read! And you’ve gotta love the typewriters on top. At least, I do. 🙂
Atmosphere: Sit down, grab and go, study, but busy and somewhat loud
Seating: Quite a few small, two person tables
