A local’s guide to
St. Louis

Start your day the way the French have been for centuries: with copious amounts of laminated dough and butter. The Nathaniel Reid team makes over 100 types of pastries, entremets, breads and sandwiches daily, so good luck picking just one (an impossible task). Grab a ham and cheese tiger claw for a bigger breakfast, or treat yourself to the chocolate almond croissant that made him famous: They’re baked, filled with housemade almond paste, chocolate and rum syrup, then baked again.
