Our History

For more than a century—124 years to be exact—Beffa’s Restaurant was a cornerstone of the St. Louis, MO, eatery scene. Since 2011, the area has been without one of its greatest treasures and oldest family owned restaurants. However, this long-time eatery is once again gracing St. Louisans with their delicacies and open-arms atmosphere. Beffa’s has reopened in its original location near Wells Fargo and offers a number of updated aspects for everyone to enjoy.

If you’re looking for a relaxing place to enjoy your lunch break or dinner after you’ve punched the ‘out’ on your time clock, this is the restaurant you want to frequent. Still owned by the Beffa family, you can expect the same level of care and customer-oriented service. Whether you’re coming for lunch on a Tuesday afternoon or grabbing some food to go after quitting time, you can expect a delicious meal to satisfy your hunger.

Not just a restaurant, this is also a casual spot for workers looking to unwind after a long day at the office. In its heyday, Beffa’s had one of the oldest liquor licenses in the city, bringing rich and flavorful liquor options to guests of their bar. We are continuing this tradition, along with having live music on the weekends for a truly immersive and entertaining dining and gathering experience.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill restaurant—it’s a city favorite being brought back to life for people to enjoy, from those who have missed visiting to those who never got the chance to experience it.
