The Crooked Tree Coffee House owes its name to the “crooked tree” that has inspired many a generation of Saint Charles residents to take pictures, watch for the springtime blossoms, and  relax and play under the broad catalpa leaves at the corner of First Capitol and Kingshighway. Legend has it that a great and compassionate Indian chief was laid to rest under that catalpa tree. The tree was so saddened at his passing that it bowed over his grave, never to stand straight again.

Now the crooked tree has inspired a great cup of coffee at 559 First Capitol Drive in Saint
