Benton Park Café
(1900 Arsenal Street; 314-771-7200)
Those in search of a breakfast that's long, boozy and full of carbs should head to Benton Park Café now to get their name on the lengthy weekend wait list. But don't let the weekend lines dissuade you -- the "BP Slinger" is worth it. This is not your grandma's plate of biscuits and gravy. Here, two of its famous beer biscuits are topped with cheese, bacon, eggs over-easy and housemade gravy. You can get it with a side of fruit, but let's be real -- you're going with the loaded potatoes. Need the hair of the dog to help you through last night's shenanigans? The bartenders' generous hands are primed and ready to whip up the signature booze smoothie, or "Boozie." And you wonder why people are lined out of the door.
