Need a pick-me-up? How about a midday meeting spot? Whether you’re on the hunt for your next cup of Joe or a quiet place to refuel while working, check out these five Downtown coffee shops.

Washington Avenue Post: From its lengthy hours to its ample stock, Washington Avenue Post combines convenience and taste into a can’t-miss coffee stop. This grocery store and coffee shop hybrid is family owned and operated, and boasts a full espresso and fruit smoothie menu.

Park Avenue Coffee: With four St. Louis locations and a local roasting facility, Park Avenue Coffee makes supporting STL coffee simple. The Downtown location on 10th Street features a generously sized patio perfect for these early autumn days.

Red Oak Eats ‘N Treats: This Washington Avenue eatery is the state’s first “room to table” restaurant, as some of its ingredients are actually hydroponically produced inside its Downtown location. Stop by Red Oak Eats ‘N Treats for all-day breakfast or a myriad of lunch options, or to grab a luxury coffee drink or smoothie.

6 North Cafe: Located in Peabody Plaza across from Citygarden, 6 North Cafe offers breakfast, sandwiches and salads in addition to its full coffee menu. With branches also in Ballwin and Wentzville, this local, family-owned chain is known for its speedy service and great customer service.

Catalyst Coffee Bar: Support your caffeine addiction and the arts at Catalyst Coffee Bar, a nonprofit supporting Art St. Louis. Grab something unique, like the limited-time Cold Brew Coffee Spritzers, or stick with the classics like a cafe au lait and a baked good from Whisk: A Sustainable Bakeshop.
