Enjoy the wonderful treats! New Years Eve was fun as flappers and gangsters. The owners are genuine and wonderful to meet!

“Desserts are fantastic after an evening out”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Went here after the symphony for dessert and was not disappointed. Our party ordered four different items and each item was very good. The only downside was parking and it is very loud inside.

“Dill Pickle Soup and Ice Cream Martinis!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

This place was a great find for us as we were on our way to the Saint Louis Symphony at Powell Hall. The atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. It is in an attractive old historic building with a lot of character. The crowd was very eclectic and all age groups were present. Some come here for ice cream, some come for a meal, and some just want to partake in the cool and unique drinks. I had the creative egg salad sandwich and the dill pickle soup. Both were delicious. The Fly Me to the Moon ice cream martini was AMAZING! And we even indulged in the homemade apple pie after the waiter recommended it. We haven't had this great of a restaurant experience in a long time! THe music is a mix of oldies and modern tunes. Oh, and don't forget to check out the restrooms! :)

“Great stop with lacrosse team after a game”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

As we headed home from Illinois at 8:00 on a Tuesday night, we didnt want fast food and had a car full of cold and hungry boys. We stopped here got Hot Chocolate, great sandwiches, and the best soups ever. My husband had dill pickle soup that was so amazing and so unique and I had beef stroganoff soup because it is not normally on the menu and I wanted to try it. Now it is my favorite soup ever. The boys ended the dinner with sundaes. My husband had one of their fun and unique cocktails. What a great way to spend any night of the week. We will be back!

“The Fountain on Locust”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

We started going in to the Fountain before and after St Louis U basketball games. Service is quick and the food is great. Pulled Pork with special salsa is tasty, soups and salads are generous. Large selection of imported and domestic beers. Fountain sodas, sundaes, and
deserts are exceptional. All homemade from scratch. Located in a very cool restored Stutz auto showroom in midtown St. Louis.
