I'm not here to talk about the cupcakes (which are fantastic). I'm here to let you know that the food at Jilly's is to die for. If you haven't heard by now, Jilly's serves lunch, and brunch every Sunday. I can't deny that their lunch is a pleasant experience. But, if you want your culinary socks knocked off, make a reservation for brunch. It has to be, hands down, the best all-you-can-eat meal I've ever taken part in.My husband and I decided to give brunch a try, since we love the cupcakes and the lunch we had there years ago. We didn't make a reservation, but managed to luck into hitting the door at just the right moment. I wouldn't recommend that approach, though, because when Jilly's gets packed it gets packed fast!For $15/adult (fountain drinks included) you'll be shown to a spread fit for royalty. Almost every food you could want for breakfast or lunch is available: giant bowl of cool, fresh fruit, Egg Strata, Brisket Hash, 6 Cheese Mac & Cheese, Chicken Salad, Egg Salad, Maple Sausage, Caramel Apple Baked French Toast with Praline Walnuts, mini cupcakes, tartlets, cookies and much, MUCH more.Pace yourself! Get a plate with a little bit of varied interestingness on it, eat and drool over it and then go back for your favorites and to try whatever you couldn't fit on the first plate. I actually got full before being able to try everything I wanted, which would have made me a sad panda. But, I was so high off the glory of good food that it barely mattered.This is absolutely worth the price of admission. So, do yourself a favor and make time for Jilly's on Sunday morning. If you work the buffet like a pro, you won't need (or want) anything else to eat all day!
A little expensive and these people INSIST on putting chocolate syrup in custard, even when you ask for vanilla. Twice we've gone there and I ordered a peanut butter cup concrete. The second time I specifically said I wanted vanilla custard, and they still put chocolate syrup in it (as opposed to chocolate custard with chocolate syrup, I guess). I asked the clerk about it, and she said "it's vanilla, that's chocolate syrup" and closed the window in my face. Great customer service! Not.
If you don't come here you will regret it. Or maybe you won't because you'll never know how amazing the ice cream is here. The staff is incredibly nice and the atmosphere is bohemian in the best way possible. You have to try their alcohol infused ice cream. I don't even like alcohol but when you mix red wine and decadent chocolate ill bite.
The first time I came to St Louis for work a man on the airplane told me that I had to try the custard at Ted Drewes. So glad I did, it's amazing! I've never had anything so good! I love the peach & marshmallow. It's worth the wait even when the line is long, you won't regret it.
This is a Saint Louis tradition that you have to experience! The lines are long, it is 100+ degrees in the August heat, but we stand there patiently waiting for the yummy custard goodness that is the concrete. Oreo for me please
Velvet Freeze is the BEST. I remember when they were throughout the St. Louis area. Delicious flavors and the real thing! Favorite memory getting their peach ice cream and pouring some hot peach jam we were making over it.
This was a decent place but we've had better. If you're ever in Springfield check out Andy's Frozen Custard. It's da bomb. Ted's satisfied our cravings. If we're ever back in St. Louis we'll probably look for something else.
Food is great. Cupcakes are heavenly.....so is the ice cream. This place has never disappointed me. Yes...it gets busy. Need to exercise patience or comeback when it's not busy.
This store is almost my second home. When I need something, I always visit this place. I know already the manager here and he is very accommodating.
Best Frozen Custard ever. I usually get a Blue Berry custard, they always load it with tons of berries.
