Saturday afternoon we had nothing much at all to do, so we decided to wander around Cherokee Street for a bit. We don't spend nearly enough time in that neighborhood, but since I've started working at Nebula while our sitter stays with Claire, I figured it might be in my best interest to scope out all the good coffee & tea joints.
It was a really gorgeous day in St. Louis - a little overcast, but considering it's August the temperature was amazing. The perfect day to wear my Sonnet James Quincy dress and carry Claire in our Solly Baby wrap. Also, I've developed a real love for my Birkenstocks. Expect to see me wearing them ad infinitum, maybe even with socks come autumn...
Our first stop was Whisk Bakeshop, which is one of my favorite places for a treat & a coffee in St. Louis. One of the best things about Cherokee is that it's a neighborhood comprised of entirely local enterprises - no chain stores or restaurants down here!
I mean, can you even get over those light fixtures??
We usually go to Whisk for the artisan popsicles (strawberry goat cheese anyone?) but since it wasn't so hot on Saturday we swapped that choice for a nanaimo bar. I couldn't tell you why they called it that, but it was sort of like a way more indulgent Almond Joy.
Claire slept through the entire afternoon, taking about a 3 hour nap in her wrap. Nothing better than a low-key afternoon exploring our city. The next time you're down on Cherokee, we definitely recommend making a stop at Whisk!
