Cafe Telegraph With Bill Cieslinski

Cafe Telegraph With Bill Cieslinski

A few years ago my wife and our four kids enjoyed a fantastic dinner at a new, locally owned restaurant in the South County area. It was a spring day and we sat in a rustic, modern barn style room. The room had a great indoor/outdoor feel to it. The huge windows were opened and it reminded us of restaurants that we've been to in Florida. The Cardinal's game was on and everywhere you looked there was a great view. The atmosphere was awesome.

Best Indoor/Outdoor Dining In St. Louis
That "new" restaurant was Cafe Telegraph near the intersection of Telegraph Road and Jefferson Barracks Road. Although it's not new anymore, I still believe it's one of the best kept secrets in South St. Louis County. If you love outdoor dining, this place offers one of the best indoor/outdoor dining experiences in St. Louis.
