Last weekend, I had the awesome opportunity to explore another one of St. Louis’s neighborhoods, Cherokee Street. It’s mostly known for its superb Mexican food (which was true – Taquiera El Bronco‘s tacos were just as good as the ones back home in Texas), but the street also had a ton of neat boutiques and antique stores.
The place had such character, which you can immediately see in the photos below:
We walked into a “sustainable” bakery called Whisk. While they make a mean brownie, holy cow, I now know what I want the inside of my home to look (and smell) like!
And then there were the more quirky places:
Then, we came across The Heirloom Room that provided more interior decoration inspiration:
The antiquing continued (I had no idea that my guy friends could like antique stores so much??):
Records are all but obsolete nowadays, but it was still fun to flip through and admire record art at Dead Wax Records:
One final peek into a cozy little book store, Hammond’s Books:
I am reminded once again of how interesting St. Louis neighborhoods are. They’re filled with history and cool little nooks that are waiting to be found (by me!). From all the pictures, it might seem like I saw all of Cherokee Street. But I didn’t even come close! There’s still many art galleries, restaurants, and stores along here that I’d like to come back to visit. I used to think that there wasn’t much to do in St. Louis; how wrong I was! You only have to take a look through my St. Louis blog posts to see what a vibrant city it is.
Have you been to Cherokee Street? What stores and restaurants should I visit next time?
Thanks for reading!
