The chef is very friendly and eccentric, spoke perfect english, and even offered us free gesbacho. After lots of heavy french food during our trip, this menu was just what we needed. They serve a variety of really good vegan/vegetarian items (I'm not even vegetarian)...More

A nice coffeehouse with lovely house baked cakes. The girls working there are passionate about food and are cooking in a small kitchen. Just across the big stairs of the station a good place to start the day or have a good lunch.

Laid back hipster place where the food tastes fresh, healthy and very light. Pleasant surprise for a place right by the train station.

This easygoing hipster joint can be found across the street of the grand stairs at St Charles Train Station. I believe the restaurant also operates as a shared workspace. There is indoor and outdoor seating. Cafe l'Ecomotive reminds me of the restaurants on Avenues A...More
