About Us

Edibles & Essentials is a small artisan market and Café located in the Saint Louis Hills neighborhood on Hampton Ave halfway between Eichelberger Street and Holy Hills Avenue.

It’s a place where you can enjoy mouth-watering, house-made comfort food and more eclectic cuisine over engaging conversation and laughter – inside or on our beautiful all-season patio in back. Think winery experience, city style!

It’s a delightful market where you can shop for culinary must-haves.

And it’s an experience that will make you feel right at home.

First-time guests often say how charming the café is and are shocked at the quality of food they get at such reasonable prices.

At Edibles & Essentials, we source some of the finest foods through local vendors and farmers. And we take a tremendous amount of pride in limiting our carbon footprint by being as sustainable as possible.

With our subtle storefront set back from the road, it’s easy to drive past, or to think the parking lot is full.

But rest assured. In addition to the spots in front, you may also park along the street anytime or in the neighboring lot during evening hours.

So come in, shop, lounge, linger, enjoy! We look forward to your visits.

Stay Safe STL!

Matt & Mary Beth Borchardt
