Even with an extensive menu, this is the best place to go for dessert. The ice cream and candy creations are truly the best ever! Their hot fudge is the consistency of tar. You won't find any better. The service is always the best.

A hidden gem in St Louis. All the food is amazing. Hot and fresh, good thing they serve hand dipped malts and milk shakes. Homemade candies prepared onsite. Classic historic building. Worth any wait to get in.

We had a great meal. We were a little surprised as we drove into a somewhat sketchy area. The staff were busy, direct, and you could tell they meant business. We went around 1:30 in the afternoon and they had a line out the door...More

We should have gotten there earlier. Arriving about 11:40, we had a 15-minute wait. However, a musician set up and entertained us, and a Crown Candy Kitchen employee came out and distributed menus. So, the wait went quickly. And it was well worth it.Or group...More

The interior is very much like what you think you’d see at an old time candy store. I went with some friends for lunch. The seating is limited and the most you can have at one table is four people. We all had the BLT...More

I've wanted to visit the iconic Crown Candy Kitchen for years. But I came away disappointed. The interior is cute enough, but there's not nearly enough seating. The wait staff was not particularly friendly, and my $5 strawberry shake was fine, but nothing special. I...More
