This place has been a favorite in St. Louis and a landmark for ice cream lovers since 1929. Mr. Drewes' cool, creamy delights are served upside down in order to prove just how creamy and thick they really are. Do not be alarmed by the ever-present line, as it moves along pretty quickly. An ice cream-style stand, complete with neon lights and twinkling bulbs, makes this a lively family hangout. It is so relaxed that the menu is handwritten. Try an array of frozen flavors, from pineapple, strawberry and chocolate chip to other odd titles such as the Terramizzou, Fox Treat and All Shook Up. A Concrete is a must-taste as this historic sweet spot. They are open from 11a daily.
For kids and adults alike, this unique soda fountain shop has something for everyone. Located in a former 1916 car showroom on Locust Streets' famous Automotive Row, Fountain on Locust serves up a bevy of nostalgic treats in the form of retro cocktails, ice cream sundaes, American cuisine, milkshakes, floats, and of course, house-made sodas. The unassuming exterior leads to a fantastical interior featuring gleaming white and blue mosaic subway tiled floors, bar seating with swivel seats, and an attention grabbing art deco mural gracing the walls. For the adults, their signature ice cream martinis are a must-try, while the piled high toppings of their old fashioned ice cream specialties are a real treat for the kids.
Crown Candy Kitchen is where to go when you want to fulfill your sweet and savory cravings.
