This red-brick café on historic Main Street in Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, serves quiche and café au lait to make the French proud.
Known for her hospitality, Beanik Cafe owner Shannon McBride also makes bagels, cinnamon rolls, turnovers and spiced apple and cheese crisscross pastries.
Everything here is delicious, as well as morale-boosting: When the flood of 2019 hit this little river town, McBride donated from-scratch pastries to the relief workers.
