The remaining space will include prepared food, a coffee bar, and seating for 67 along with a a few outside dining tables. After 5 pm there will be table service.

Beer, wine, and spirits will be carried, with beer and wine by the drink available for dine-in patrons.

The liquor license permitting the sale of packaged alcohol could be contested, as there is currently not a place to purchase carry out alcohol. Growlers of beer can be purchased at Cicero’s at the far west end of The Loop, which is in University City. United Provisions is located in the City of St. Louis. Package liquor sales have been opposed and rejected for Loop business in the past, though the grocery store is hoping for a different outcome.
