Thanks for your review. But even more thankful for your years of patronage. It is disheartening to us as well but after 21 years the time has come to relax at least a little. More

We loved the atmosphere of this old time type soda fountain. The food was ok. I had a grilled cheese and my husband had a Reuben. We shared a chocolate shake. The grilled cheese was alright, but not like what I make at home. My husband said his Reuben was good. The shake was good, but I thought a little... More

We all ordered simple sandwiches, but they were fresh and delicious. The ice cream was really good too.

My husband and I were in Mountain View for a few days and we had to visit Woods Soda Fountain before leaving town. We opted to go big and got the Raccoon Bearclaw Wa Wa. Oh my goodness it was fantastic! In a past visit we enjoyed a cherry phosphate and a hot fudge sundae. We have not been disappointed... More

This is an old soda fountain and ice cream parlor that has some neat old décor similar to a soda fountain of the 1950's or so. The food was good and the staff was very nice and service was quick. Can recommend this place for a quick lunch right on the main street in Mountain View.

We stopped in to this little place for ice cream. The service was the best! All of the workers seemed to be having lots of fun and really enjoyed their jobs. They made our experience very good. The ice cream and soda was also great! We will be stopping there again on our next visit!

We stopped in on a Friday night to get ice cream. Cute place. The server was friendly and helpful. We had 6 different flavors and all were wonderful. Almond Joy ice cream was unbelievably good! We ate it outside while listening to the bluegrass music in the park.
