A new neighborhood café recently debuted in Shaw. Fiddlehead Fern Cafe opened in October, offering coffee, tea, shrub cocktails, loaded toasts, baked goods and more in a light and bright minimalist space. The coffee shop gets its moniker and botanical theme from the namesake plant, and is also a play on words to coincide with a love of bluegrass music.Read More
If you follow my Instagram, it’s no secret that I’m obsessed with Fiddlehead Fern Café. The coffee shop just opened about a month ago in Shaw, one of my favorite neighborhoods in St. Louis.
I wrote about Fiddlehead Fern a little bit after they opened, but I decided to devote an entire post to them. I’ve been there a few times now and each time I go, I like it even more. Call it true love, exceptional service, or just a really good coffee shop concept, but I’m addicted.Read More
Fiddlehead Fern Cafe recently hosted its grand opening Oct. 14 at 4066 Russell Blvd., and owner Darcy Heine is inviting St. Louis to try a cup of coffee new to St. Louis.
Heine, who grew up in the area, has worked in the coffee industry since she was 15 and said she’s long wanted to open her own cafe. “The idea started about five years ago when a place that I was managing closed, and it was at that point where I realized I could do this,” Heine said.Read More
Fiddlehead Fern Café (4066 Russell Boulevard, 314-972-2637) opened in the Shaw neighborhood earlier this month. The counter-service café offers breakfast, lunch, coffee and sweets in a space designed to welcome neighbors, family and friends.
Proprietors Darcy Heine and her family have lived in Shaw since the 1940s. In fact, Heine attended the same neighborhood school as her mother before her. The family has witnessed plenty of ups and downs over the years and decided the community needed a gathering space. “What better place to do that than over a cup of coffee,” says Heine.
