Welcome to Sugar High, a series devoted solely to spotlighting the best ways to sate a sweet tooth in St. Louis. We'll sample the best the city has to offer at restaurants, bakeries and holes-in-the-wall, and provide some insight on how these confections are made along the way.
Since opening in mid-December, Living Room (2808 Sutton Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-306-7626) has taken care in pairing small-batch roasted, single-origin coffees from around the world with a variety of from-scratch baked goods. The sweets selection varies by day and includes everything from cinnamon rolls and quick breads to baker Nate Larson's personal favorite: his peanut-butter chocolate-chip cookie.
