Serving gourmet for over 40 years
Cravings Gourmet was founded in 1984 by Tim Brennan, and has since become synonymous with quality foods in the heart of Webster Groves. Cravings now offers four main areas of service, and they are catering, wine and food pairing events, gourmet desserts and also wedding cakes.
Tim started in Ireland, where he baked simple cakes in cookie tins, tied to his bicycle handlebars and sold them on his college campus. It began as a wholesale bakery only, but more individual requests were being made. Eventually he started making wedding cakes and moved to the current retail location: 8149 Big Bend Blvd; 63119 in July 1993. Though no longer a restaurant, Cravings Gourmet still has a wide selection of savory and sweet items for catering.
