The neighborhood is a little sketchy, but they are doing things to upgrade it. They ahve lots of homemade candy... More

Our timing for this restaurant was perfect! There was no line and we had the perfect table. The table was a bit small for taller adults but we still enjoyed it. The sandwich portions are extremely large and so are the sundaes. The candy is expensive but you can purchase the minimum quantity. The hand-dipped ice cream and malts are... More

We have been hearing rave reviews about Crown Candy Kitchen for years. We finally made the trip on a beautiful Fall Saturday afternoon. Yes, there was a line, but we were fortunate to be the only "two-some" in line. A gentleman came out and asked if there were any groups of two, and we were seated after only waiting a... More

This place really stands out from the rest! I've lived in the St Louis area my entire life, and cannot believe I did not go here sooner! It is small, and the line was out the door when we went on a Saturday, however we decided to order carryouts and eat at the picnic tables across the street so we... More

Stepping back in time here. Thursday afternoon and we did not have to wait. We ordered the Crown Sundae, Chocolate Chip in a dish and a Chocolate Malt. All were delicious and our waitress was super. Enjoyed our visit immensely!

We were returning from a great meal and our hotel shuttle was supprised when we asked if he would drop us off at the Crown Candy Kitchen. He told us it was his favorite place to go for ice cream and most visitors to St. Louis were not aware it even existed. Now don't go expecting to find a nice... More

I've been going to Crown Candy for over 30 years. This is what I know. Go when you have time on your hands (it's a small place that always has a crowd waiting). Go during the day, you may not want to be on Saint Louis Avenue anytime after dusk. Go when you are hungry and I mean on the... More

Here's the thing. Do your homework before heading to Crown Candy. It IS a hole in the wall. It IS in a sketchy neighborhood. It is NOT open on Sunday. Go with an open mind and a loose schedule. Now...if you love bacon...order a bacon sandwich and watch out. You'll get approx. 2" of crispy bacon to chomp on. The... More
