Here’s what Monika W. said on Yelp about SqWires:
‘Sqwires is hands down my favorite brunch spot in St. Louis! I highly recommend making a reservation ahead of time so that you don't have to wait. They have a bottomless mimosa or Bloody Mary bar and it comes with all of the stops - 5 different kinds of juice, bacon, cheeses, fruit, candy, celery, hot sauce, and more. Keep in mind that the bottomless only lasts for 2 hours so get your fill!
They always have someone at the piano playing live music and their servers are friendly and attentive. I have always enjoyed my experience at Sqwires, special shout out to my favorite server, Mariana!
Now to get to the food, Sqwires has the BEST french toast I have ever had in my life. It's made with brioche bread and has the PERFECT blend of vanilla flavoring with a hint of cinnamon and some great maple syrup. I cannot rave enough about it. I've had other menu items but nothing can beat the French toast, although everything I've had on the menu is great.
It's totally worth it and although I recently moved to Chicago, I always try to go whenever I'm in St. Louis.’
