The owners of Little O's really put their heart and soul into this place and you can tell. From the authenticity of the soda fountain items, special "old time" candies and really delicious desserts. The Gooey Butter Cake, a St. Louis favorite, is made from...More

I was always a big fan of this Soda Shop. Two years ago my grandson was in town, they were wonderful about his peanut allergies. A new ice cream (vanilla) was opened, the scoop was sterilized and he enjoyed a wonderful rootbeer float. We went...More

The decor is great. The ice cream and phosphates good. Skip the butter cake. It was horrible, a waste of $ and was thrown away. The atmosphere is fun. It was a good part of our St Charles visit. If in the area, I’d return.

The people here are insanely friendly. The old-time soda shop is complete with homemade gooey butter cake, milkshakes, candy, and sodas. The gooey butter milkshake is something I would definitely trade my left arm for

The visit is as much about the experience. It's a cute, old fashioned soda place. Sodas and concoctions I don't know or understand. But the grandkids loved it. I liked the butter beer and the gooey butter shake was crazy good. Didn't try the sandwiches...More

Teenagers love Ice Cream, so, to get two boys to walk Main Street St. Charles with you--you need an incentive. This was it--Old Fashioned--HAND DIPPED--Filled to the top kind-of shop. You may pay a pretty price--but, you get quality! They have all the old favorites,...More
