Our Top STL eGift Picks for June

Summer might not begin until mid-month, but June always feels like the official start of the season. When sending eGifts this month, consider how your recipients will spend their gifts this summer.

We’ve rounded up some of our top eGift card picks for June, featuring the best patios, tastiest seasonal menus, and favorite hot weather spots to hang out on the longest days of the year.

Edera Italian Eatery: Patio dining at its finest

In late April, Edera made the announcement everyone’s been waiting for: they've opened courtyard dining for the season. And it’s arguably the best patio in the neighborhood. They’ve ditched their winter chalets in favor of two- and four-tops surrounded by greenery, tucked away from the bustle of Central West End’s Maryland Plaza. A $25 gift card will easily cover one of their tasty Neapolitan-inspired pizzas—a perfect match for their Italian-inspired courtyard.

High Low: Perfect for sun shower days

If you weren’t looking for it, you could drive right past High Low on Washington Ave in the city’s arts district. It’s unassuming compared to the busyness and big signage of Urban Chestnut across the street, and it blends in with the rest of the block. But when you step inside, you’ll see why this is a great spot for a summer coffee meeting: big windows to let in ample sun and plentiful indoor seating surrounded by packed bookshelves is a welcome oasis during summer storms. A $5 gift card will be enough for a cup of tea or Blueprint Coffee.

Brasserie: Al fresco dining on otherworldly eats

St. Louis is known for lots of things, but when it comes to weather, there’s a hard truth to acknowledge: we often skip from late winter straight to summer. Spring is gone in the blink of an eye. But the beauty of June in St. Louis is it’s the perfect time of year to enjoy a street-facing patio. Warm enough to not even think about a jacket. But not so hot in the evenings that the idea of an outdoor meal makes you sweat. Brasserie’s French fare is accompanied by bistro-style sidewalk seating that tricks you into thinking you’ve taken a leap across the pond. A $50 gift card will cover cocktails for two, an amuse-bouche, and the tasty escargot.

Fiddlehead Fern: Summery sips and selections

June isn’t all about patios, though Fiddlehead Fern Café does have a beautiful one. The star of the show there is a seasonally fluctuating menu of vegetarian eats, caffeinated sips, and delectable desserts. This is the best time of year to spend an afternoon in the garden district and Fiddlehead emerges almost out of thin air in the heart of the Shaw neighborhood, which comes alive in spring and summer. A $15 gift card will pay for a bottle of fresh-pressed juice or a delicious salad full of locally-sourced hydroponic greens. The menu screams summer.

The Frisco Barroom: Split-level dining under twinkle lights

Webster Groves is full of hidden and not-so-hidden gems, but this one is a standout for patio season. Their “rustic American” cuisine can be enjoyed by moonlight at the street level or upstairs beneath a canopy of criss-crossing string lights. Pierogi, poutines, and pasties add depth to the menu, but all the plates are equal parts accessible and delicious. A $15 gift card goes a long way here—it’ll buy your recipient a loaded smash burger and fries.

eGifts to local businesses are pretty high on the thoughtfulness scale already, but adding the timeliness of seasonal selections goes a step further.
