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.
At Whitebox Eatery (176 Carondelet Plaza; 314-862-2802), brunch is key, and no brunch would be complete without a little something sweet to feed a hearty appetite. Pastry chef Jamie Hardesty's cheese pastry sates that craving without laying it on too heavily. Her lighter take on the traditional breakfast treat awaits in the pastry case daily alongside a variety of other options including savory tarts, muffins, cookies and more.
