This is one of St. Louisans’ favorite places for ice cream treats and hard to find rock candy. Teach your kids the difference between a phosphate and an ice cream soda in this joint that’s been in business since 1913. Go for lunch or dinner, but don’t expect to find hamburgers on the menu; BLTs and Tamales are the top sellers here. Go figure. But anytime you visit, expect a line out the door. That’s just the way it is. Crown Candy Kitchen is located in the part of town known as “Old North St. Lou,Ã¢€ and at times it looks a little rough, but don’t worry — it’s a safe visit to Crown Candy.
