We've said it before, and we'll say it again: Instagram was practically made for pictures of food. Gut Check has rounded up our favorite foodie accounts in St. Louis, but there are so many cool photos every week, we wanted to share what St. Louis' best chefs, bartenders and eaters are Instagramming. If you see a good one, send it to us!
1. Choctopus at Strange Donuts
Our inner seven-year-old just lost her mind.
2. Brunch at Olio
This photo is seriously everything brunch should be. We want to live inside it.
3. Valentine's Day cookies at Pastaria
It gives us major anxiety that we are even talking about Valentine's Day so early, but these cookies are pretty cute.
4. Macarons at La Patisserie Chouquette
We never, ever get tired of these.
5. Peru Chilchos at Kuva Coffee
If only every morning began like this.
Kuva's Peru Chilchos coffee french pressed this morning transported me back to a beautiful country rich in history and heart felt connections. It's hard to explain the complexities of flavors in this cup but it's an incredible experience. I get excited when I find partnerships that carefully benefit both sides especially in areas as special as Peru. #sustainablecoffee #kuvacoffee #coffee #farmfresh #singleorigin #coffeebeans #vibrant #peru #chilchos #conservation #missouribotanicalgarden #travelphotography #foodphotography #arabica
6. Smoked wings at Bolyard's Meat & Provisions
Could this be the next big thing?
7. Cauliflower po' boy at Lulu's Local Eatery
Vegans don't have to miss out on the po' boy fun.
8. Chiffon cake at the Crossing
This dessert is almost too pretty to eat.
9. Cauliflower vegan pizza at Pizzeoli
Seriously, cauliflower isn't messing around.
10. Braised lamb at Niche
The tiny portion only makes us want it more.
