Best Ice Cream Parlor St. Louis 2009 - The Fountain on Locust
3037 Locust St.
St. Louis, MO 63103
Step inside the Fountain on Locust and Norman Rockwell visions of happy families sipping ice-cream sodas in a simpler time come to mind. With its high ceilings, vibrant paint job and old-fashioned soda fountain, it could snag an award for Best Ice Cream Parlor Décor (if there were such a thing). If you order food off the menu, just be sure to leave room for ice cream. We're hooked on the Irish coffee flavor, but you won't go wrong with any of the dozen choices. Sodas are made in-house, with no high-fructose corn syrup. In need of something more potent? Try a Wicked Martini: vodka, dark crème de cacao and chocolate ice cream. Or an Orange Dreamsicle Martini: vanilla vodka, triple sec, orange sherbet and vanilla ice cream. The Fountain's open late on weekends and is within walking distance of Grand Center. Hard to top a convenient après-theater dessert destination!
