“St. Louis's Crown!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Definately a St. Louis landmark! So good it's been on foody shows on tv. Get a bacon sandwich with a pound of bacon. Or a homemade milkshake. DRink 5 milkshakes in something like 30 minutes and get them free! This is a small place in a rather strange area of north St. Louis, but it's worth the wait to get in! On hot days they even put up a tarp outside and a cooler of water to keep you cool and hydrated while you wait. After a great lunch, check out their home made candies for purchase.

“Go for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

Crown Candy may not be in the nicest part of St. Louis (go in the daytime), but the food is great, and the milkshakes are huge. Bring your appetite, and get ready to sample the best sweets the Midwest has to offer. Everything is made in-house and your tastebuds will know it. Have some mint non-pareils for me.

“Takes you back in time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Step in to Crown Candy Kitchen and you think you went back 30 to 40 years back. The ambience inside is wonderful but the sundaes are even more delightful.

“Great ice cream and shakes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Their sandwiches and chili are quite good, but most people go there for the superb ice cream sundaes and great malts and milk shakes which are served with the metal mixing cups. Servers can remember your order without writing it down. They also make their own chocolate candy, which is quite popular on Valentine's Day, Easter, and Mother's Day.
