Riverfront Times' Description

The culinary genre of food that is "just like Mom used to make" can be found in lunch and dessert form at this old-fashioned drugstore counter and soda fountain. Straightforward and satisfying sandwiches include tuna salad, chicken salad, egg salad and PB&J, plus scrumptious Chicago-style and chili dogs. From the fountain, enjoy bona fide phosphates mixed right in front of you, a classic banana split sundae (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry ice creams; hot fudge, pineapple, strawberry toppings), or a surprise testament to New York, the egg cream. Of course there's pie, most notably the brownie pie with the melted chocolate-and-caramel icing on top. In short, a cheery throwback to PTA bake sales, mom-and-pop shops, the Woolworth's counter and Mom herself.

    Heard it on the street from a crowd of college students "This is the coolest place in Saint Louis!". Best place to buy Asterix comics and get an old fashioned milkshake, I might add.
