Located atop the Four Seasons Hotel in downtown St. Louis, Cinder House offers cuisine and atmosphere that is literally elevated above everything else. Headed by James Beard Award-Winning chef Gerard Craft, the menu specializes in wood-fired foods that are internationally inspired but rooted in American Southern flavors. They offer breakfast daily, and but the real treat is Sunday Asado brunch from 10am - 3pm. Inspired by South American cuisine, the buffet features multiple different kinds of meat, made-to-order omelets and egg dishes, and local vegetables cooked over an open flame.

2. Cafe Madeleine

Editor’s note: establishment is permanently closed

Brunch is only served at Cafe Madeleine the first Sunday of a month, between 10am - 2pm, but if you happen to be in St. Louis on that day it is well worth it to make a reservation. Located in the Palm House, you will be dining in a piece of history: the building is the oldest greenhouse west of the Mississippi River and dates back to 1878. The setting is breathtaking, with flourishing flowers and a pond outside the building, and plants and statues throughout the interior. A delicious brunch is served buffet-style, with French-inspired options including omelets, pastries, and of course Madeleine cookies. You’ll get a complimentary glass of champagne with the buffet as well as coffee or tea.

St. Louis Tour Guide

Melissa Smith

I began my guiding career as a teenager in St. Louis, where I was born and raised. I first volunteered as a guide for the Chatillon-Demenil Mansion in South St. Louis. There is where I fell in love with history and its effect on present day. From my teenage years as a volunteer, I progressed to a job at the Missouri Botanical Garden where I trained and supervised the School Program Volunteer Docents and Instructors. My love for the outdoors comes from this experience of guiding school groups and chaperones through the spectacular 79 acres of the world’s 3rd most renowned botanical garden. Right here in my home town! From there I’ve gone on to work for the National Park Service as a Seasonal Park Ranger. This has been a most rewarding and delightful experience! I have guided travelers at such wonders as Arches National Park in Moab, Utah, and lesser known parks like Voyageurs National Park in International Falls, Minnesota. I have served two seasons at the Gateway National Park in St. Louis and have been to the top of the Gateway Arch over 200 times! Each time was a unique experience. I witnessed 3 marriage proposals, 1 military reenlistment ceremony, and 1 choir singing their award-winning songs. Most recently I have been guiding tours of Forest Park, the Central West End, and downtown St. Louis. I hope you’ll join me on one of my walking tours. I can’t wait to share with you St. Louis, and our rich cultural history!

Taste the array of all Vin de Set offers at their Sunday buffet brunch between 10am and 1pm. Sip a complimentary mimosa or whip up a unique drink at the Bloody Mary bar while noshing on hand-carved prime rib, made to order waffles and more.
