Quaint atmosphere oozing with history/nostalgia. Sandwiches are excellent. Fresh and large portions. Ingredients are top shelf. Can’t go wrong with any dessert.

Crown Candy is a St. Louis institution. The BLTs, egg sandwiches and malts / milkshares are worth every calorie - all of the selections are so delicious. When you walk in you feel transported to another era - the booths, servers, ambiance and food are...More
