Where to begin? We've been going to Crown Candy for over 40 years. Not only is it living history, for years it was the one beacon in a rundown area of the city. Now, because of it, the neighborhood around it has completely regenerated. The reasons are simple. The place is iconic with old Coca Cola memorabilia all around. The... More

The biggest & best BLTS you will ever have! The malts are wonderful! They are always busy so go early and go on a weekday if possible. Worth the wait.

My husband and I went to Crown Candy for lunch and arrived at 11:30. This is important because 5 minutes later, and we would have been in line for an hour. We waited about 20 minutes (as it's a very small place with few seats) and sat to eat. He ordered the BLT, which is GIGANTIC, and I ordered the... More

We visited Crown Candy before taking our daughter to college. We got there as soon as it opened to avoid the lines. The chocolate malt was the best I've ever had and the BLT was freaking amazing too!

I have been coming here for years, and I've never been disappointed. This trip was just for dessert. They make their own ice cream and it's delicious. I've tried most of the dessert items over the years and they all been good. My favorite, which I got on this trip, is the Chocolate Banana Malt. You can't go wrong with... More

This is one of our favorite places to go. The food is served very fast, and it is oh so good. I had a Hot Fudge Newport, and it was heavenly with its pecans, hot fudge covering delicious ice cream. Crown makes its own ice cream. They have a nice menu of sandwiches and chili. It's the best ice cream... More

Not the greatest neighborhood, but I went during lunch with a few people from work and everything was great. Very small restaurant and you might wait a little while for a table but the food is worth it. Huge sandwiches (BLTs, turkey melts, etc.) and even bigger milk shakes and sundaes. Definitely a place to stop while in St. Louis!... More

I heard about this on MSN.com. They listed the greatest BLTs in America and it was on the list. The BLT is as big as the picture. My wife and I had to split it. They also have great milkshakes

This old soda fountain restaurant is a step back in time and they have plenty of atmosphere. There was a line and we had to wait since the seating is relatively small but once we sat down the service was fast. We tried the egg salad, the famous bacon sandwich (not greasy at all), and, of course some shakes. There's... More
