Special Featured Book Review:

Miss Hullings Favorite Recipes (1969)
Florence Hulling Apted
Foreword by Sue Ann Wood
Illustrations by Don Pallarito

It was in the Depression year of 1930 that Florence Louise Hulling, a young Illinois farm girl who had come to St. Louis to seek a job as a telephone operator, opened her first cafeteria-style restaurant in the downtown business district.

Miss Hullings grew to become inconic in the St. Louis area. Downtown businessmen, shopping wives and kids all knew the cafeteria.  The chain expanded throughout the area, even for years operating the famous cafe at St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

From Jan Whitaker:  In the 1940s and 1950s Miss Hulling’s was just the kind of place that earned high ratings from Duncan Hines and Gourmet’s Guide to Good Eating, the latter reporting, “Everybody in St. Louis swears by Miss Hulling’s. Food is exceptionally delicious, clean, and of high standard.” The cafeterias served their own ice cream and baked goods, used fresh fruit for pies, and prepared food in small batches.

Through succeeding decades the Miss Hulling’s enterprise, headed by the couple’s son Stephen J. Apted, grew large. It acquired Medart’s (turning it into the Cheshire Inn), and opened numerous restaurants in the metro area, among them The Cupboard and the Open Hearth, as well as running food services at two hospitals. Headquarters, including a bakery, were at 11th and Locust above the two-floor cafeteria. At the same location were the more formal dining spot Catfish and Crystal, His Lordship’s Pub, and a bakery and ice cream shop. In 1993 the entire operation at this site was closed down, the same fate having befallen the Olive Street cafeteria some years before.
