Sasha's Wine Bar & Market
(706 DeMun Avenue, Clayton; 314-863-7274)
Along with its sister location, Sasha's Wine Bar (4069 Shaw Avenue; 314-771-7274), this is one of the best spots for both wine connoisseurs and those who are just looking for a simple glass at the end of the day. The expansive list offers more than 60 wines, all available by the bottle, glass or 1.5-ounce taste, and the knowledgeable staff will always point you in the right direction. The food menu is light, simple and includes a selection of housemade soups, salads and sandwiches, plus cheese plates and delicious crepes. Some food, some wine -- all in all, not a bad combination.

Kaldi's Coffee and Roasting Company

(700 DeMun Avenue, Clayton; 314-727-9955)
This is the original, where it all began for Kaldi's, one of St. Louis' favorite coffee houses. And while the building is small and can become crowded, the interior is newly remodeled, and the coffee is modern -- the DeMun location utilizes the pour-over method, which produces a surprisingly rich, flavorful cup of Joe. The food menu is more than the usual coffee-house fare of muffins and bagels; start with a housemade pastry with your morning coffee, or come back later for a "Farmers' Market Salad" and a smoothie. If your mornings seem empty without your Kaldi's fix, the solution is simple: Buy your own bag and brew it at home.

Carl's Delicatessen

(6401 Clayton Road, Clayton; 314-721-2393)
The New York deli experience is waiting for you at the corner of DeMun Avenue and Clayton Road. Giant, meaty, overstuffed sandwiches (the pastrami!) are the foundation of any deli worth its salt, and Carl's does not disappoint. There are no frills once you're inside, and you're likely to encounter a diverse clientele from all walks of life sitting around sharing a table. If a heap of thinly sliced meat is not your forte, try the egg salad, or maybe even the Provel sandwich -- there is a vegetarian menu. That being said, it'd be difficult to go and pass on that famed pastrami. Carl's has been around for more than 60 years with no signs of slowing down, so take advantage of the opportunity to visit this staple of the St. Louis deli scene.
