STL - hospital patient dying for chocolate malt

STL Chowhounders, where oh where BESIDES Crown Candy can I get a really good chocolate malt for my hospitalized father? His only request after coming out of surgery is "please bring me a chocolate malt." He is at St. John's Mercy in Creve Coeur. Thanks for any help. Was thinking maybe Cafe Manhattan but not sure if they still do shakes/malts (PS - he wants a true MALT not a shake).
I defer to the previous posts.
But just so you and others know, Cafe Manhattan definitely still serves malts and shakes in the old-fashioned way with the silver mixer and the glass. Ted Drewe's offers a malt option for its delicious concretes -- my regular order is a chocolate concrete with extra malt (so I can taste a bit of the grittiness from the powder; also be careful not to just order "a malt" because then it will be the thin kind rather than the concrete with malt added). Finally, is there still a Baskin-Robbins on the corner of Olive at Mosley or has that morphed into something else? B-R does a good chocolate malt, depending of course on the skill of the worker mixing it.
