Half & Half (220 West Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-942-1617) opened its Webster Groves location to an eager crowd on Tuesday, September 6, with customers lining up for that Blueprint coffee at 6:55 a.m.
It's the second spot for the brunch hotspot. Chef Mike Randolph, who also owns Publico and the soon-to-close Randolfi's Italian Kitchen, first opened its big sister in Clayton in 2011. The Clayton location has been a huge success, and even played a role in the birthing of one of the metro area's premiere coffee joints: former general manager Mike Marquard went on to start Blueprint Coffee, the acclaimed Loop java spot.Says chef/owner Mike Randolph, “Clayton has been so good to us, being part of a community, and as we looked for a second location, we wanted to find another community that we could ingrain ourselves into and give people that same kind of neighborhood feel — where you know the staff and can get a good cup of coffee and some great food to go along with it.” When First Watch vacated the space at 220 West Lockwood Avenue, it seemed like the perfect fit.
