Crown Candy Kitchen Restaurant Review

: Since 1913, the Karandzieff family has served ice cream, chocolate and lunch to everyone in this old North Side neighborhood. It specializes in elaborate sundaes and rock-solid ice cream sodas --- family members hand-scoop up to 500 a day. Don’t miss the banana malt, served in a giant footed glass and accompanied by a second serving, straight from the metal container where the all-natural ingredients came together. Bacon is a key ingredient in most of the sandwiches, from the BLT (15 slices per order, thank you very much) to the tasty turkey melt. The décor is authentic, with two rows of tiny wooden booths and a well-stocked candy counter right by the door.
