Don't forget the malt

Killer BLT and roast beef/cheddar sandwiches. Strawberry and chocolate/banana malts to top it off. Very happy that we found this place on our way through St Louis. Stop by, you won't be disappointed!

Their sandwiches are huge and very tasty. The BLT was top-notch, as were all the sandwiches in the party. Doggie Bags for one and all. But I loved the malts and shakes, which were lacto-masterpieces.

This century-old restaurant is a place to take out-of-town visitors, or to go with anyone who likes an authentic, old vibe place. It is venerable. Hearty sandwiches and old-fashioned ice cream concoctions. I had a BLT, nicknamed the Heart Stopper. It was the first time in my life that the words "too much bacon" crossed my mind. Wow! Very casual,... More

Crown Candy is a St. Louis tradition! Giant sandwiches loaded with serious goodness! For you bacon lovers-wow!! The BLT is something else. Delicious shakes and malts. My children and I love this place!! One of these days we will go early enough to get their signature chicken salad sandwich! They sell out fast!

Crown Candy is a staple of St. Louis. Locally owned and operated for YEARS! Small and quaint. Ice cream is perfection. I had the Caramel Newport. Loaded with hot fudge, pecans, whipped cream finished with a cherry! Yummers!!!!

You can't leave this proud river city without a lunch visit to Crown Candy! It's a many generational business that has weathered changing times and neighborhood, retaining its incredibly delicious sandwiches, luscious candy and heavenly homemade ice cream. A local artist has contributed to its atmosphere, showcasing his lifelike sculptures in a park across the street where families can picnic... More

I am a huge fan of Crown Candy Kitchen. It is close to City Museum, so we always make a side trip for dessert. I have to get their Crown sundae, which is a turtle sundae but better! It is piled high with toasted, buttered pecans and it is amazing. I know others line up for the food, but I... More

Not an easy place to locate, but well worth the trip. The food is excellent, the shakes are wonderful and the dessert choices are awesome. Just get there early, and know exactly where you are going. BTW, the BLT's are memorable!
