“An old-time soda fountain!”

Crown Candy Kitchen, is a restaurant located on St. Louis Avenue in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood of St. Louis, Missouri. The restaurant was founded in 1913 by two Greek immigrants, and is still run by the descendants of one of the founders. This Saint Louis landmark is the oldest operating soda fountain in the metro area, and one of the oldest in the country. Did you know that Crown Candy Kitchen makes their own chocolate candy? Whether it’s for a weekly candy run, to fill Christmas stockings, for your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day or for Easter baskets – Crown Candy Kitchen has been satisfying the “sweet tooth” of St Louisans for many generations. Besides the soda fountain and candy, Crown Candy Kitchen serves great food for lunch and dinner. Whether you’re in the mood for a thick stacked sandwich, chili, a giant gourmet frank, a salad or a bowl of soup – Crown Candy Kitchen’s staff is ready to prepare a fresh hearty meal to satisfy your appetite. Don’t forget to leave room for dessert. Nobody leaves Crown Candy Kitchen without trying one of our world-renowned desserts (it’s family policy). When was the last time that you had a Butterscotch Malted, Chocolate Phosphate or a Deluxe Sundae? Before leaving, make sure to grab something for a friend, loved one or office mate. All candy, desserts and souvenirs can be packaged for takeout. You’ll definitely be someone’s hero! Crown Candy Kitchen’s staff hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and look forward to seeing you again in the near future. Featured on Best Sandwich in America and Man Vs. Food!
