We are open

  Daily from 7am - 5 pm 

for Dine In, Drive Thru & Online Orders.

Breakfast is available ALL DAY! 

In response to the COVID-19 Pandemic we are taking the following steps to ensure the safety of both our customers and employees.

  • Installed an acrylic barrier at the front counter register to create separation between customers and employees
  • Installed contactless payment devices
  • Eliminated customers signatures on credit card transactions to minimize contact 
  • Reduced our seating in the café to create appropriate social distance between tables and guests. Please note that tables with blue tape are NOT able to be used.  
  • Installed paper towel dispensers in the bathrooms so that there are both air dryers and paper towels available
  • All employees to wear gloves and masks where appropriate.
  • Modified our procedures on refills of drinks and closed the dining room soda machine. 
  • Surfaces in the kitchen and dining area are disinfected multiple times throughout the day and the entire café is fully cleaned at the end of every day.

These are just a few of the procedures we have implemented to ensure you can have the best, and safest, dining experience possible.  Please ask any manager if you have any additional questions.  We also understand that each person has their own comfort level when it relates to dining out at restaurants.  We hope that you choose to dine in with us, however, please don’t forget that we still have online ordering and drive thru service available.   

You can also ORDER ONLINE.

Download the Toast App or follow the link here on the website. 

Online orders can be picked up through our Drive Thru or inside the cafe.


Gift Cards are available in any denomination.

Thank you for your continued support!

Downtown Location

It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the permanent closure of our 

Downtown St. Louis location at 701 Market St.

We have served the Downtown St. Louis community since 2008 and are very appreciate of the tremendous support over the years. Our customers have been at the center of our success and have become part of our family too. Unfortunately the current situation we are all facing has placed an insurmountable burden on our ability to operate going forward.

Thank you for all of your support - we could not have done it without you!

Don’t forget we are still open at our Ballwin location offering drive thru and online ordering!

About Us


Family Owned and Operated Business


6 North Café is an independent, family owned and operated St. Louis business. Guests at the café will find an extensive menu of hand-crafted favorites for breakfast & lunch as well as homemade cookies, oatmeal bars, pastries, muffins and smoothies. We have partnered with Kaldi's coffee to offer traditional coffee,

 an espresso bar, batch brew and hand brew coffees.

Our first location opened in January 2005 in the 6 North Apartment Building. Now you know where the name 6 North Café originated. 

This site closed in December 2011.

 6 North Café Downtown opened in September 2008 and was located in Peabody Plaza across from Citygarden. This site closed in April 2020. In June 2011, another café in a free standing building with a drive thru opened in 

Ballwin Grove on Clayton Road.

We take great pride in providing our guests with consistent, high quality products as well as outstanding customer service. You will walk into 6 North as a customer and leave as a friend. 

It will not take long for our staff to learn your name 

and remember your favorite latte or sandwich.

6 North Café is owned by the Altrudo Family and operated 

by Mike Altrudo.
