Throw back in time to this fun small town store and enjoy a delicious Blue Bell ice cream cone! Friendly small town service!

Went there after dinner and you could smell it from the door. Smelled like old moth balls inside. Just a bunch of junk with some ice cream. We all walked out.

Great service and ice cream! I've been coming here since I was a little girl. In fact it used to be my great grandmothers clothing store before being turned into the now existing Soda Fountain!

I love old time soda fountains so I was excited to get inside. The reason I gave a poor rating is there is way too many souvenirs, and not enough space for patrons to move through the store. Also the fountain was very busy. There were only 2 young girls trying to serve customers their soda fountain items, but also... More

We like to drop in to this local Soda Fountain when in the area. We didn't eat this time, but we shopped and found the perfect T-shirt for hubby. He wanted something not so flashy, and we found a nice color that he really liked.

Very nice and friendly place to stop in for ice cream or a shake. Nice little tables or bar to sit at, while looking at the interesting pictures, etc. on the walls. A good place to shop for that special souviner

A very wide range of soda fountain and other drinks, a well stocked shop full of interesting and quality souvenirs and other items. The staff were very welcoming and chatty. A really nice place to visit.

My husband had to stop in for a chocolate soda, I had a scoop of blue bell ice cream. It was like the 1950's. Great browsing after , lots of tacky touristy stuff.

Half is set up like an old soda fountain, complete with the bar stools, but the other half is your typical Florida tourist "stuff". It would be nice to have glass instead of plastic, but the ice cream was good and they offer cones, floats and other old time favorites. A good place to take young ones so they can... More

Like really good hand dipped ice cream? Then stop in Apalachicols, Fl. First go to Boss Oyster and have oysters on the half shell and a oyster entrée. Then go to Old Time Soda Fountain for really delicious ice cream at an old fashion soda fountain counter. Try it, you will have a good day.
