I just had a brownie sundae. It was good. Nothing special. I assume the ice cream martinis are more notable. I'll have to stop back by next time I'm in town.

This place is one of two "must stops" whenever we go to St. Louis. This ice cream is seriously awesome. It gets SUPER CROWDED around dinner time so we always go for a late lunch or an hour before go closing and we have no trouble getting a table.

Royal Grille sandwich. This specialty adult grilled cheese features a savory blend of white cheddar and mozzarella with Fuji apple slices. You can even add ham or turkey to it. Add a side of homemade soup or choose from one of their other sides which include the Strutz and St. Louis salads, Brussels kale cup, spicy carrots and hand-cut potato chips. Don't forget about dessert!

Great spot! In a cool little area of town. Soup was made from scratch and excellent. I had a Cuban and my wife tried the grilled cheese and Apple. Both great. Brought kids here, and they were welcomed. Atmosphere is really something to experience. Worth the time to pull in. Parking on the street or around the corner in a lot. Plenty of space when we went.

We had a great time here. Ice cream Martinis were amazing. Can't remember name but it was banana flavored and so good. My 3 yo had the worlds smallest hot fudge sundae and it was cute!
