When 2010's U.S. "Pastry Chef of the Year" opens a bakery in your city, you go. Nathaniel Reid Bakery's unassuming strip mall exterior gives way to a veritable pastry wonderland, the likes of which St. Louis has never seen.
A simple interior with limited seating and a friendly staff that will remember your name and your favorites.
The entremets -- personal-sized, intricately designed cakes.
Nathaniel Reid has finally stopped globe-hopping and settled down in Kirkwood, and we couldn't be more thankful. He's represented the U.S. in global pastry competitions, and less than one minute in the shop will show you why. Don't miss out on the lunch options -- especially sandwiches on his buttery parmesan brioche.
