Half & Half
Clayton, MO 63105
Riverfront Times' Description
Half & Half serves both breakfast and lunch, but the breakfast menu here - available throughout the day - is unquestionably the star, as owner Mike Randolph (who opened the midtown pizzeria the Good Pie) gives the Most Important Meal of the Day a contemporary bistro treatment. You can pair your eggs with pork belly; the steak in your steak and eggs is a hanger steak. Coffee service, featuring beans from Kaldi's, is extraordinary, from the "ordinary" drip brew to grounds filtered through cloth so as to capture the maximum amount of their essential oils.
Tips from foursquare
Come to gaze upon the amazing variety of facial hair styles behind the coffee bar.
Blackberry French toast is a blackberry-and-mascarpone sandwich that sums up everything that's right about Half & Half's approach. (Joe Bonwich)
Second attempt; honestly from start to finish, FOH and BOH, each time was an epic failure. Word of advise, 86 the ISI canister emulsified hollandaise. There is no substitution for the real thing.
Food is fantastic but the service leaves something to be desired....
The service here still sucks. You would think after all the bad reviews about the incompetent waitstaff that management would try to fix the problem but no luck.
