This old soda fountain restaurant is a step back in time and they have plenty of atmosphere. There was a line and we had to wait since the seating is relatively small but once we sat down the service was fast. We tried the egg salad, the famous bacon sandwich (not greasy at all), and, of course some shakes. There's... More

Best malts in St louis. This is a small place and can get busy at lunch, expect a line. Small booths and classic decor, not like the fancy joints. Their Ruben sandwich is great and the heart attack BLT is wonderful. The malts are worth it, always order in because you get the full metal cup which will fill the... More

A long time STL favorite, Crown Candy never disappoints. With their quaint soda shop setting, their food will take you back to the good ole days. The BLT is loaded with so much bacon, it is rediculous, and you must order a sundae to top it off. Anything on the menu won't disappoint. Just get there early, or prepare to... More

Casual dining in a retro venue. The food is wonderful and the candy shop is something to experience. You have to try the BLT!

Amazing desserts. BLT sandwiches to die for. Be prepared to wait. Small Places. Not a lot of tables and usually crowded. Small menu. Neighborhood a bit schechy

Very good food. The BLT is why I keep going back, you better love bacon if you order it. My wife always take half of hers home.

Love this place so much, best malts in America and homemade candy. A real old fashioned candy shop. The only downside is the neighborhood is pretty rough, but don't be scared away it is worth the risk and if you take some common sense precautions you'll be fine.
