The Fountain on Locust

I had been wanting to go to the Fountain on Locust ever since I met a really cute red-head who worked there and claimed to make some of the best ice cream martinis. I never had an ice cream martini before and this quickly moved to the top of my list of things I had try!

Luckily, I had an event on Locust so naturally it made sense to stop by The Fountain on the way. It was meant to be, although my new friend was not working.

Of course I ordered the Grand Chocolate Martini, which was filled with all kinds of chocolaty goodness: Godiva Chocolate liqueur, chocolate vodka, and chocolate ice cream. Don't worry, I shared this drink since it was quite strong!

I was really impressed with the “soda fountain” feel of the d├ęcor and the long list of "sammiches" just felt right for the place. I went with the “adult grilled cheese” that I had heard about, the Royal Grille, which consisted of three types of cheese, apple slices, and some turkey as well!

Patience ordered one of her favorite too...the High Hat, which consisted of creamy, smooth egg salad. I got the pickle though!

We both combined our half sandwich with the St. Louis City salad, which is their version of a Rich 'n Charlie's salad...delicious!!

Even though we had ordered an ice cream martini, our server still offered us ice cream for dessert, but our drink was plenty dessert for us!
