If you’re craving European desserts, St. Louis has your taste buds sweetly covered. The Frangelico affogato here is a total knockout; it’s French vanilla gelato with a fresh espresso coating and a generous splash of Frangelico liqueur.

We also enjoyed the St. Louis fondue. It’s warm Belgian waffles and hot cinnamon churros in a pool of creamy milk chocolate topped with plump strawberries.

Then there’s the strawberry Nutella crepe—a thin, delicate crepe filled with ripe strawberries and slathered with velvety Nutella. It’s drizzled with milk chocolate, so each bite delivers creamy, sweet, and fruity flavors.
