Miss Hulling's Cafeteria in 1993 Miss Hulling's Cafeteria in 1993

By: Mike Colombo, News 4 Reporter

ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -- I'm not exactly sure what it was that made me think of the old Miss Hulling's Cafeteria in downtown St.Louis this morning.

I can barely remember my few visits to the long-ago closed cafeteria with my mom and grandma as a very young boy. I guess stories from those days fill in the memories in my mind. 

Anyway, for whatever reason the place popped into my head around three o'clock this morning as I sat at my desk in the newsroom. 

Surprisingly, it wasn't a food craving that got me thinking, but more so a moment of nostalgia. I wanted to remember what the inside of the cafeteria looked like. Lucky for me, we have a pretty vast archive of video at Channel 4. 

So off the the video room I went...

What I came back with was a story that aired in October 1993 just before Miss Hulling's closed its doors.

You can see the full story and additional video from Miss Hulling's above.

I hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane as much as I did.

Now if only I could get rid of my craving for that famous split layer cake! 

Thanks for reading and watching.
