CROWN CANDY is one of those must visit places on any trip to STL. Handmade candy,handmade ice cream and so much more. The atmosphere alone is worth the price. Old wooden booths and original decor and fantastic staff make you feel welcome to be there. Food is great buy you need to try the HUGE BLT!! WOW ... Looks like... More

They have a few things on the menu, like a fish sandwich, which I'm sure the deep fryer hasn't seen since the end o' WW2, because, if you're in Crown Candy, you're here for the BLT (and a malt, which is a shake to everyone else, unless you really know what a malt should be). These things are enormous, and... More

We had been told to check this place out when we were in town and I'm so glad we finally made it here. We will definitely be back. The portions are big so sharing is always a good idea. My favorite is the shakes - it brought back so many childhood memories when they brought out the metal cup full... More

Old time ambiance, great food, staff very helpful. Come hungry because the portions are huge. You may want to share. If anything leave a bit of room for dessert. They have a wide variety of ice cream treats that should not be missed. There was a bit of a line when we were there, but it moved quickly. Definitely not... More

There is a lot to like at Crown Candy. Good sandwiches, nostalgic atmosphere, old time soda fountain, candy counter, but the shakes are to die for. Made with real ice cream, fresh milk, and mixed in a metal can. So many flavors to choose! Fresh strawberry and fresh banana are my personal favs but all are worth trying. It's definitely... More

I cannot go here without ordering the BLT. It is awesome. Huge amount of bacon and just so good. Great shakes as well During the holidays, Easter and Christmas, they have the most wonderful candy

Crown Candy is a family owned business that has been around for a long time. It's like walking into a soda fountain from back in the 50's. A good place to satisfy your sweet tooth. If your a bacon lover, you have got to try their BLT. It's addicting!

Best BLT in St Louis. Malts, candies and just great food. Always busy because of the friendly atmosphere. Great food and décor is a blast from the past.

The chocolates are hard to beat. The milk shakes are to die for. Reminds you of the old milk shakes you got back in the day.
