Tree House offers the perfect veggie-based brunch on South Grand in St. Louis

Warm and welcoming, Tree House offers the perfect veggie-based brunch. It’s diverse enough that meat-eating homies enjoy tagging along and relaxed enough that our family doesn’t mind meeting us there.

Our go-to is the hearty banh mi with house seitan and tempeh bacon – it’s a little spicy, a little pickle-y and super satisfying. The seitan sausage, Brussels sprouts and sweet potato hash is another, slightly lighter winner that sees comforting, delicious, creamy herb hollandaise drizzled over aforementioned hash and either eggs or tofu.

Speaking of hollandaise, Tree House’s Benedict game is strong, and whichever one is on the menu, we highly recommend sampling it. An order of pancakes is necessary for the table, unless you’ve managed to score one of the coveted cinnamon rolls, which you should make sure to order the minute you sit down, because they will run out. Beyond that, a mimosa kit is a powerful move, and a steady flow of coffee is, of course, necessary.
