Local favorite, close to downtown

We were at a conference downtown and had a 90 minute lunch break. We didn't want the box lunch or to go to a chain restaurant - and we keep talking about CCK, so we took a taxi over for lunch. It's only 2 miles from the Hyatt. Cab fare was $20 RT. It's a great little place, and it's... read more

Crown Candy is a long time favorite. BLT and chocolate bannana malt. Can't beat it. With the old school diner atmosphere and terrific service, what's not to love!

I've been eating here for years as my mom ate here often when she was growing up! Their BLT is amazing! Big enough to split with someone. They have the best chili! My boyfriend had a Marshmallow Shake that was delicious! They also sell candy & made the best Easter candy! The wait can be long, but so worth it!... More

Get the BLT. It was amazing. This was my first ever visit and it was well worth the twenty minute wait to get a table. All of the staff were very friendly. All around great experience.

Get the BLT and a malt. Delicious food and candy, you can never go wrong. The line get long fast here, so be prepared to wait or come early and avoid the line.

I've been here twice and it is excellent! I got the bacon sandwich and, mmmm, so good! It's a seat yourself place, first come first serve and there is usually a line out the door. There are only booths (no tables) for 2 or 4 so if you have a larger party you'll have to sit at different tables or... More

We loved it! Yes there was a line down the street but it moved fast. Plus they have a few benches along the building. The waitresses/ superwoman don't ever stop going. My husband & I shared a small salad (it was big) and of course the BLT with a vanilla milkshake. It was amazing! We couldn't even finish it. Our... More

Crown Candy has not changes since I was a little girl. I hadn't been here in years, but it was exactly the same. The shakes are so good, you have to have one. One thing, if you order the blt, be ready for lots and lots of bacon. It is truly big enough to share.

This place is amazing. I have been several times and each time is amazing. They have a small menu but we go for the malts and shakes. If you ever visit St Louis this is a must

The only downfall of this place is the line. That only means it's awesome though. Had a blt and a chocolate banana malt. First off the blt was hands down the best I have ever had. It was literally loaded down with bacon. The malt was easily in the top 3 I have ever had. I can not wait to... More
