Best Brunch

Three Flags Tavern

Staff Pick

Look at the packed dining room at Three Flags Tavern on a weekend morning, and it's shocking to realize that the restaurant sits smack-dab in the middle of the traffic hellhole created by the Kingshighway bridge construction. After all, there are few reasons to drive through this mess. It just so happens that many of them are on Three Flags' brunch menu, served on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The "Dutch Baby," a deep-dish pancake-soufflé hybrid, is filled with Serrano ham for just about the best sweet and salty breakfast combination St. Louis has to offer, and the mammoth homemade buttermilk biscuit is a flaky mechanism for shoveling down mounds of fresh Devonshire cream and seasonal fruit. But really, how do you order anything at Three Flags Tavern other than the brisket burger? It's available at brunch too, and the only thing that could make it any tastier is pairing it with the restaurant's spicy bloody mary. You'll think the construction detour has taken you to the end of the rainbow. 4940 Southwest Avenue, St. Louis, 63110. 314-669-9222, www.threeflagstavern.com.
