Soapy's Guide To St. Louis

Soapy as a puppy at Herbaria

Soapy became our shop dog when she showed up at our door in 2011. Lucky us! Follow her on Instagram @herbariasoap. Find over 1000 pics of the gorgeous Catahoula at #soapyherbaria

Many visitors to Herbaria fall in love with Soapy. With her tail-wagging welcomes, she’s our Customer Service Specialist. Below are some of the places she likes to visit around St. Louis. Let Soapy serve as your concierge.

Locations are arranged from the river westward, then east over the Mississippi into Illinois, then even further afield back in Missouri.

The photos below link to the location's website for further information.
