St. Charles

Sucrose, a clean, bright European-style cafe with brimming pastry cases and a custom cake shop, emphasizes the importance of not only baking these masterpieces but also enjoying them. In their small, white-walled dining area there’s plenty of room to indulge in St. Louis roasted Blueprint Coffee and a tasty treat. Good luck choosing between all the options like, Kentucky butter cake, lavender shortbread, dense boca negra, fresh, moist carrot cake, or one of 6 light, flavorful French macaroons. With her European recipes and his Ritz Carrollton background, co-owners, pastry chefs, and married couple Agi and Aaron Groff are St. Louis’ sweetest duo.
