Have tried to eat here before but the line was always outside so never stopped. Today we went by for a really late lunch around 3:30 on a Tuesday and were able to walk right in and get a table. We all had Milkshakes which were huge and outstanding. The sandwiches are huge. I had the BLT and there is... More

Great nostalgic looking café. The shakes and malts complete the look but the bacon burger goes over the top. The assortment of candies can't be passed up either.

Tool about 15 minutes for a table. Food is great and very reasonably priced. Didn't have room for ice cream but will definitely return again, Sandwiches were full of whatever you ordered: bacon or turkey or whatever. No cutting corners here. Love the old time decor and feel. Very well maintained.

Best BLT I have ever had and great malts. Small booths, so I would not recommend for groups larger than 4.

Taking another recommendation from a local, we had the BLT sandwich and a chocolate shake. Wow! Don't miss this St. Louis landmark.

Good ,ample servings a lot of people leaving with to go containers. If you want to go off of a diet, this is the place. This place was on my bucket list and I am glad I went.

Oh, I love this place! A BLT chock full of bacon and a milkshake that serves three, if you are crazy enough to share. It's that good! Crown Candy is a gem, a blast from the past and one of a kind. The Coca Cola stuff, original now vintage decor and tiny booths are adorable. I always bring visitors here... More

Stopped by for a Saturday lunch. My group had to wait for a seat, but the wait was worth it. Great sandwiches and milk shakes. The BLT was HUGE! If you love bacon, get it! Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

Hands down the best blt I've had in my life! I'd like to see someone eat a whole one by themselves! They are as big as my head! Delicious!

This was our first visit despite having lived in St.Louis our entire lives and I gotta say we are kicking ourselves for having waited so long to try this place! It's a small and quaint historic spot that serves a variety of sandwiches, ice creams, shakes, malts and candies and OH MY GOD... DELICIOUS! I tried the Heart Stopping BLT,... More
