How about some St. Louis, Missouri, Park Avenue Coffee gooey butter cake that will practically melt in your mouth?

Park Avenue gooey cakes and coffee, St. LouisYou can wash it down with their specialized Park Avenue coffee.

Would you like to know how the coffee beans turn from green and “crack” toward a fully-roasted bean to provide the coffee smell and flavor.  Park Avenue posted their interpretation at


The serving area is clean and has a welcoming ambiance.  A relaxing seating area compliments the environment.

According to my research the gooey butter cake originated in St. Louis.  Park Avenue Coffee ships the cakes worldwide.  Here is a video clip explaining the cake processing and distribution.

Wow!  Talking about that cake makes me hungry for some.  The only problem though, I need gluten-free and they don’t have it at Park Avenue.  I thought about making my own and comparing.

You know what? My wife was so gracious she made my very own gluten-free gooey butter cake.  It is quite delicious.  Maybe I should open my own gluten-free, small bakery.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog. I appreciate your interest. The last gooey thing I ate was last week. A very dark chocolate lava cake with a glass of port. If I eat something gooey, its usually the darkest chocolate or a fantastic cheese.😍

    1. Thank you so much. Who would think something gooey would taste so well. But, we never know based on the appearance until we taste the ingredients. 🙂

  2. I have never been there but if I have the chance in future I will for sure.
    That coffee looks simply dreamy and the cookies seem the tastiest from all.
    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Thank you Katherine. Hope you can check it out one day. Yes, they are quite tasty and the coffee is excellent. It’s something special about the gooey part that adds that different texture. 🙂

    1. Well I’m trying to take you all along with me in words and images. It’s just not the same as being there though. I get it. Little teasers along the way help us enjoy the day. 🙂
