Everything I read said get there early... This was true! We arrived at 10:30 when doors open and we had to wait outside for about 5 minutes before we made it in the door. Very nice view outside, green and white overhangs, old building with...More

My wife wanted a Malt, so where else to get the BEST Malt but Crown Candy. Chocolate of course. I like the Shakes there. Always good place to treat yourself.

I know people talk about the neighborhood, but a lot of good people live in that area. The BLT is ridicules and the candy is amazing. Great little place.

Crown Candy Kitchen is a St. Louis tradition, a small diner-style restaurant with an old-time feel. Their candy is wonderful and all made on the premises, but there's much more to love here! Their ice cream is terrific, with huge, wonderful sundaes and fabulous milkshakes...More

Fabulous old time diner that serves yummy milkshakes and the best BLT in St. Louis. They sell "fancy" candy at the front counter too so beware--hard to pass up. People are nice and friendly. Highly recommend!

A St. Louis gem. Shakes are epic. Have never had any other sandwich than the BLT. (No reason to try anything else.) Awesome service. Fantastic candy souvenirs.

This is the flip-side of Ted Drewes. It’s a place to sit down, rather than walk up, and offers ice-cream, in contrast to frozen custard. It’s the only place I have personally seen that offers every shake as a malt. Pineapple malt, butterscotch, cherry malt,...More
