Seafood place, coffee shop to open in Maplewood; Bagel shop closes

Blue Crab Juicy Seafood, at 3248 Laclede Station Road in Deer Creek Center, is ‘coming soon,’ according to the sign on Thursday.


Also in Maplewood, Alyssa Schuler posted on Facebook: “We are the proud owners of C. Oliver Coffee +Flower Bar! Today was such a special day, we had @brightlydawn style us for our lease signing! We have been planning this for such a long time!! Alyssa has loved making flower arrangements for years and I (Olivia) have loved Coffee forever! This has been a dream of ours and we are finally making it a reality! We can’t wait to serve you Coffee AND Fresh Flowers!”

It’s at the former Orbit Pinball Lounge at the corner of Sutton and Hazel.

In Brentwood, Einstein Bagels, at 1912 S Brentwood Boulevard, closed three months ago. an employee at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit said.

  1. I am so excited for this business! We can always use more delicious coffee in town and I have been hoping for a flower shop for years! I can’t wait to check them out.

  2. Wondering if the new coffee/flower shop is open yet. I want to check it out.

  3. Welcome C Oliver! I think that is an ideal spot for your establishment. And having the park across the street will be a plus for your new business. I wish you good luck in your new endeavor.

  4. I wish these young ladies much success. I would encourage others who have voiced negative or sarcastic comments to welcome another small community business and do not be judgemental before they open the doors. Supporting small businesses and eliminating closed and vacant store fronts is healthy and promotes competition and trade. Yes small businesses are sometimes more pricey, but they have to operate entirely differently to be profitable. And if the prices are not manageable for someone’s income, then there is always they choice of patronizing other establishments. I’m just saying give them a chance, don’t discourage them before they have even opened their doors.

  5. I don’t see how that Dickey’s BBQ stays in business in our highly competitive market. Really bad BBQ….

  6. Looking at the pictures and reading the story and comments, I have absolutely NO idea what is going on, where it is happening, and how it all relates. Seafood, coffee & flowers, Einstein Bagel, Dickie’s Bar-B-Que, Living Room, $8 Tuna sandwich, Orbit Lounge, Brentwood ……. Am I missing something?

    • Coffee shop and flower shop combined is definitely different than 1 more boutique coffee shop… anyways, so excited about this!!

  7. I’m happy to see these women following their dreams and wish them the best. I’ll be stopping by for sure. Hopefully they do not have the ridiculous prices that Living Room has for sub-par food ( I realize it’s a coffee joint, but man, that Living Room food is way overpriced for what you get.)

    • Couldn’t agree more !! $8.00 for a tuna salad sandwich.
      Good luck ladies and I’ll see you soon.

  8. Wow! A coffee place going in right across from another coffee place. Interesting. Living Room, we love you.
