Location: Missouri History Museum, Forest Park, MO
A rare find for a museum cafe, Bixby's at the Missouri History Museum offers a buffet-style Champagne Brunch. What might seem pedestrian is actually quite honest, whether it be omelets made-to-order or their house-smoked salmon. Bixby's also offers a weekday lunch service for those who choose to linger and an express take-away counter for those who can't stay. As brunch is only offered on Sundays, making reservations is not a bad idea. It's all about the quiche.
