As reported by Gut Check, Living Room (2808 Sutton Boulevard, 314-306-7626) opened in Maplewood on December 16, offering specialty coffee roasts, from-scratch baked goods and more. Located next door to fellow newcomer Bolyard's Meat & Provisions (2810 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-647-2567), the cozy space provides the perfect backdrop in the neighborhood to enjoy first-origin coffee, tea and light snacks.
Self-proclaimed "director of coffee" Chris Phillips and manager Jordan Howe encourage visitors to make selections based on the blends themselves, presented in cups for up-close evaluation. Coffee selections include espresso, lattes, cappuccinos, pour-overs, siphon pot, kyoto cold drip, and cold-press varieties, among others.
Baker Nate Larson whips up a variety of from-scratch treats daily including a rotating selection of cinnamon rolls, quick breads and cookies. On the savory side, try a breakfast sandwich, a simple bread and spread, or a "Bento Box" featuring Bolyard's meat. Living Room's current hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit the Living Room Facebook page.
