Welcome to the Crown Candy Kitchen in St. Louis Missouri. Home of the best sandwiches, milkshakes, sodas, malts, and you guessed it, candy in the Show-Me State. Delish made a list of the best sandwich shops in America and this shop is the best of the best according to the experts. They say,

Crown Candy Kitchen, founded in 1913, is home of the first soda fountain in St. Louis and continues to serve some of the city's best sandwiches to this day. Menu highlights include the Reuben, turkey and bacon melt, and the BLT.

The restaurant was also featured on the Food Network show Recovery Restaurant which helps restaurants get back on their feet with renovations and help from some celebrities. Of course, Nelly was that celebrity. The shop was hit hard by the pandemic and the show hopes the current business owners get back on their feet and have been doing great ever since.

This shop really is a St. Louis tradition and one that we will have to check out the next time we visit STL. The menu has a little bit of everything from sandwiches to ice cream, sundaes, and more. It looks all fairly priced too.
