I might be biased, because my office is in the building, but the Wolf Public House (Lone Wolf) seems to be a favorite.

Starbucks in Wildwood Towne Center. Not only great coffee, but a friendly and congenial staff along with it!
Maria Jansen January 09, 2012 at 08:45 PM

Carlos Restrepo January 09, 2012 at 10:05 PM
Sam Malek's More Than Coffee along Manchester road.
R. Williams January 09, 2012 at 10:20 PM
I go to 6 North every morning. Their house blend is my favorite. Also, the food is wonderful and the service is great.
Amy Wasserman Wallerstein January 10, 2012 at 12:40 AM
Sheridan's makes delicious lattes!
Debra Shirken Sartori January 10, 2012 at 01:26 AM
I'm a Starbucks girl. Clarkson Rd or the Valley. Both are very convenient for me living in Chesterfield. The Valley is light and bright and has a drive through.
Grammie Toots January 10, 2012 at 01:40 AM
Marian Hirsch Kaldi's in Chesterfield. The Best
Jess Campbell January 10, 2012 at 02:07 AM
Kaldi's anywhere. But Schnucks at 141 and Clayton has the best manager -- Pam! Go see Pam and she'll make you a great Birds and Bees.

LONE WOLF PUBLIC HOUSE in Ballwin would have to be our favorite. I've been there and enjoyed it on many fronts. Have taken my wife on a date there, have taken all my kiddos there for lunch; have enjoyed the live music multiple nights a week; have even used their side meeting room for group meetings. Awesome local family-owned cafe in the heart of West County...
Jerod January 10, 2012 at 04:02 AM
Love the people and the coffee at sbux in wildwood.
Jennifer Watkins January 10, 2012 at 04:42 AM
More Than Coffee on Manchester just east of 141...best coffee and baked goods EVER. Locally roasted coffee that employs individuals that have special needs. Wonderful place, wonderful people, and wonderful gooey butter cake.
Mike Altrudo January 10, 2012 at 01:04 PM
6 North Cafe on Clayton Road is my favorite. Great coffee, food and convenient drive-thru.
Jim Heldmann January 10, 2012 at 02:45 PM
The Wolf is by far the most diverse of all coffee shops in town. Locally owned, they sponsor runs and bike races. They bring great local acts to WestCo and their food and coffee is top notch.
Jon Day January 10, 2012 at 03:33 PM
I like 6 North. Coffee and Lunch...Yum
Susan Wehrle January 13, 2012 at 03:35 AM
