Moms are the Best


If you think about everything your mom did for you growing up, it’ll be hard to ever repay her. But you can try. You’ve done the flowers and the candy, maybe even taken her out to lunch at a super crowded restaurant on Mother’s Day where everything feels, well, hurried. Why not treat mom to a few easy hours of great food, local history where no one has to worry about cleaning up the dishes? Savor Saint Louis Food Tours offers an easy-paced three-hour walking food tour through the historic Central West End and the dynamic Delmar Loop where guests enjoy samples of food from a variety of restaurants while learning about the history of the area. As a bonus, Savor Saint Louis is offering 20 percent off its tours when the purchaser uses code FOODIE2016 at checkout between May 2 and May 7.


“Our Savor Saint Louis Food Tours make a great gift,” said Susie Smith, co-owner of Savor Saint Louis Food Tours. “And we always end each tour with a sweet treat.”


In fact, Savor Saint Louis is owned by a mother/daughter duo, so they know how to treat moms right.


“You kind of feel like royalty on a food tour,” Smith explains. “You’re not in the restaurant long, but you swoop in to the table waiting for you, get your food brought to you almost immediately, get some extra attention by the staff, and swoop out before many other patrons have even ordered. It’s fun.”


A gift certificate affords the holder the ability of choosing when he or she wants to take the tour. “Just because it’s purchased for Mother’s Day or any other special day doesn’t mean they have to take the tour on that day. It’s nice because they can figure out what day works best for them,” said Smith.

“Showing off all the wonderful food and history of St. Louis to the people who take our food tours is so much fun,” said Jennifer Schmid, co-owner of Savor Saint Louis Food Tours. “Savor Saint Louis Food Tours is the best way to get to know a great deal about our city and help people fall in love with it and the great food we have.”
