Opened in 1913, Crown Candy houses St. Louis' oldest soda fountain and is one of the city's most-popular attractions to date. Step inside and you'll see why: There's a vintage jukebox, Coca-Cola collectibles and relics from every phase of this fourth-generation family-owned diner's history. Stop by for a stacked sandwich, a comforting bowl of chili and, of course, a classic hot fudge sundae.
Those old school soda fountains your parents talk about? Well, they're coming back in a tasty retro revival! But if you don't have one nearby, there's no need to panic—you can be your own soda jerk and make these fizzy, creamy cool down drinks right at home. That's right: All you need for these deliciously sweet recipes is a scoop or two of ice cream, some soda... and maybe some booze. Next thing to master: Old school diner talk!
This elevated 1920s soda fountain may not be a burger place specifically, but that doesn’t stop crowds from congregating in pursuit of patties. A menu mainstay is the Remedy Cheeseburger. Expect a perfect chunk of Kansas City Kobe beef topped with American cheese, house dill pickles, sweet onion, shredded lettuce, Texas tomato and creamy mustard on a grilled challah bun with fries. Executive Chef Danyele McPherson has wisely made this burger available for brunch, lunch and dinner.
Classic Root Beer Float --------------- if you're from the South, you know about this treat! On a hot summer day, a root beer (or other flavor soft drink) ice cream float is just what the doctor ordered. (Put one large scoop of vanilla ice cream in a tall class. Fill with root beer, allowing the soda to spill over a bit). Cheers to Summer... drink up!!
