Best Place to Take the Future In-Laws: Cafe Madeleine
You’re a good person — thoughtful, cultured, urbane, helpful, financially responsible, not greedy but with an appreciation for the finer things in life. But how do you successfully make this impression on someone else… someone potentially very important to a question you’re hoping to ask soon? The answer is not cheap, but it is simple and ironclad: treat the whole family to Sunday brunch at Cafe Madeleine (4256 Magnolia Avenue, 314-575-5658). Right in the center of Tower Grove Park, hidden within the historic and quietly magnificent Piper Palm House, Cafe Madeleine is one of the city’s under-appreciated gems. Open for brunch on the first Sunday of each month, as well Easter and Mother’s Day, Cafe Madeleine sits within a lovely, airy space: whitewashed walls suffused in light from the glass ceiling overhead and accented with plants from the Palm House collection. It’s all situated around a giant buffet, complete with omelet chef, that works well for vegetarians and omnivores alike. Well-heeled, obviously wealthy diners surround you in their Sunday best — but this is St. Louis, so they can’t put on too much attitude. It’s quiet enough to talk and beautiful enough to dazzle. In all, the perfect place to let everyone know that you’ll be an asset to the family. Just make sure to get the check, and their blessings are assured!
