One of my favorite spots to grab brunch in St. Louis is a cozy little eclectic spot on Cherokee St. called Melt. They specialize in lavish waffles with loads of toppings, and drinks with funky names. I’m not even a huge “waffle person”, but everything I’ve tried on their menu is delicious. This past Sunday when I stopped in for brunch, I tried the Elvis waffle. It is cooked with bacon inside, then topped with peanut butter, bananas, chocolate sauce and blueberry coulis. It’s more of a dessert than a meal option, but it was oh-so-good and very rich, so I could only eat half of it. I washed it down with a foamy latte. They have an impressive drink menu with an abundant list of hard drinks, smoothies and hot drinks that make it a prime “hair of the dog” location. While the food and drinks are amazing at Melt, it’s the décor that gives it a unique vibe. When you walk in, you may catch your head spinning from all the things there is to look at— from hanging fabric garland—to arcade games and painted furniture! I especially love the yellow 1970’s comfy couch with a pile of afghans on it. See, even your grandma would love this place!
