Sneak Peek: Yolklore in Crestwood

Friday, July 29th, 2016



Don’t hit the snooze button if you live or work off Watson Road. Yolklore, the newest addition to the Crestwood food scene, hosts its grand opening this Sunday, July 31 at 8958 Watson Road. As The Scoop reported in April, co-owners Mary and John Bogacki and Billy Oziransky are dishing up slew of breakfast items, pastries, coffee and smoothies.

The Yolklore crew utilizes ingredients from local farms and vendors like Buttonwood Farms, Mushrooms Naturally and Rolling Lawn Farms for their takes on breakfast classics like biscuits and gravy, a mushroom frittata and egg sandwiches.

A seasonal cream puff (peaches and cream puff to start), gooey butter cake and chocolate cake for breakfast are among sweeter options. Drawing on Mary’s Bogacki’s skills as a pastry chef, whole cakes – gooey butter, cheesecake, blueberry coffee cake and chocolate chunk cookie cake – are available to order as are special occasion sweets.

Yolklore’s coffee comes from Dubuque Coffee Co. in Brentwood. In keeping with the owners’ focus on sustainability, Yolklore offers a $5 monthly coffee club where members receive a designated coffee cup that receives unlimited refills for $1 per visit.

Yolklore is open Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Those rushing to work can swing through the drive-thru, which is open during business hours and offers the same menu as the dining room. Here’s a sneak peek inside:

The Scoop: Yolklore partners sign lease in Crestwood

Monday, April 25th, 2016




Rise and shine, Crestwood. Elevated breakfast is coming to the corner of Watson and Grant roads. Yolklore will open at 8958 Watson Road this summer, as reported by the Riverfront Times.

The trio behind the breakfast and brunch joint is well traveled St. Louis natives Billy Oziransky, John Bogacki and Mary Boehne Bogacki. Oziransky has worked in kitchens from Las Vegas to Vail, Colorado, while John Bogacki honed his skills at an Australian eatery and more recently at Bolyard’s Meat and Provisions. Doughnut lovers will recognize Boehne Bogacki from her time as executive chef at Strange Donuts. Though the group has a Kickstarter to help fund kitchen upgrades, Boehne Bogacki said the restaurant is opening regardless of the online funding campaign’s success.

All three bring different skills to the business, but have the same goal of transforming the breakfast experience. “You can make (breakfast) really, really nice,” said Boehne Bogacki. “It’s doesn’t have to be stuffy or fancy. It’s real, but doesn’t have to be just eggs and bacon. It can be more composed.”

Among those composed offerings will be the nest egg – a single-serving cup with a biscuit crust, cheddar, bacon and egg filling topped with pickled red onion and preserved lemon. “It has nice balance,” said Boehne Bogacki. “It’s something different but still comfortable.”

Yolklore will also offer gluten-free and vegan options. In addition to dining in at one of the 40 seats, diners may also grab a seat in the small outdoor area, carryout or pull through the drive-thru. Yolklore will also spotlight Boehne Bogaki’s pastry skills with baked goods, gooey butter cake and special event cakes.

Expect Yolklore to be open daily 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Guests don’t have to wait to sample the fare as Yolklore will pop up at least twice – once at the Cortex on Tuesday, April 26 and again on May 17 at Urban Chestnut Brewery and Bierhall in the Grove.
