Tasty treats, hot summer nights:

One of the city's most acclaimed gay attractions is the Coffee Cartel (2 Maryland Plaza), a 24-hour coffee shop located in the Central West End. It has an edgy, sometimes cruisy vibe, with a mixed, generally young crowd and sidewalk seating.

Down South Grand Ted Drewes Frozen Custard (4224 S Grand) is the real thing - with unforgettable old-fashioned cold treats for relief in the sultry heat of Missouri summertime.
