Food Fight: White Castle Cravers Dig the Coffee, Too
Coffee at the castle is tops in the coffee version of the Patch South County Food Fight poll.
No fancy lattes or cappuccinos here. Those who crave a burger often crave a White Castle slider, or even a sack of them and somer aslo crave the coffee. Who knew?
White Castle ended up on top of the heap of places in South County to grap a good cup of java.
The votes are in and counted in the latest South County Patch Food Fight, where we take reader's nomination for their favorite places to find their favorite foods. We've asked about pizza, burgers, doughnuts and French fries. This week we were seeking the place that serves up the best coffee.
There were a couple of coffee shops among the nominations - Wired Coffee in Sunset Hills and Perk It Up in Oakville - as well as an old style diner, Eat Rite (or don't eat at all), in Affton. And then there was White Castle, a major chain better known for it's onion-laden square burgers.
In the end, it is White Castle that can claim victory among readers who participated in our poll for serving the best coffee. One commenter noted that the aroma from those aforementioned onions that may permeate the air enough to drag more flavor into its coffee brew. The White Castle website touts it's brew as being "full of a whole lot of delicious."
White Castle grabbed 50 percent of the vote in the poll, with Wired Coffee claiming a 35 percent share of those who participated. Perk It Up and Eat Rite garnered only 1 percent each.
Voting took place from Wednesday morning until Friday at 5 p.m.
Congratulations White Castle and keep the "whole lot of delicious" brewing. And thank you to all who participated in our Poll. We'll have another Food Fight next week in an effort to find the best of another local delicacy in South County, Arnold and High Ridge.
