Embodying the true spirit of hospitality, The Barn Restaurant is a neighborhood gathering place, yet very friendly to out-of-towners. We say delicious food and caring friends are good for the soul. Enjoy waterfront dining from the deck overlooking a small lake and fountain.
Barn customers can choose from a delectable array of freshly prepared farm-to-table, all day breakfasts, lunches, and hand-crafted pastries/baked desserts Tues.-Sun., 7 a.m.-2 p.m. Catering for special events is also available. Reservations for parties of seven are recommended.
Also at picturesque Historic Sappington House, visit Thomas Sappington's home, now a museum, built with enslaved labor during Thomas Jefferson's presidency. Above The Barn, the Loft Gift Shop, chosen by Riverfront Times readers as the Best St. Louis Gift Shop, offers "American Rustic Chic" items for your lifestyle and garden. And whether for serious study or casual browsing, rest and reflect at the Library of Americana and Decorative Arts. Nearby Grant's Trail, a paved cycling/walking greenway, and Father Dickson Cemetery, burial ground for African-Americans founded in 1903, round out a charming and historic getaway to Sappington House.
The Barn at Historic Sappington House is located near the intersection of Interstates-44 and -270 and less than 20 minutes from the Gateway Arch. The Barn proprietor Karen Mott, chefs Kathy Schmidt and Dana Jones, baker Sherry Dauphin and staff will set before you a mouthwatering meal that you will not soon forget!
