Old fashioned soda fountain with all the benefits a real drug store should have. Plenty of interesting gifts and cards. Takes a good deal of time to see everything and more than one visit likely necessary as you may have to go back to get something you saw when it occurs to you just who should have it!

The ice cream at the soda fountain is only a dollar! I absolutely love the classic look of the place. Everyone at the pharmacy is really nice and will really take the time to talk to you about your medications.

This store has pretty much everything you could want! I stop in here when I need a cool thank you card or fun birthday card. The staff is always friendly and helpful and I love the look of the store. Old timey and cool.

It was like taking a trip back in time being able to experience sitting at the soda fountain counter. From the time we arrived, until we left, every seat at the counter was taken and there were others taking their treats to go. The soda jerks were extremely friendly, and never got frazzled with the crowd. The chocolate milkshake and... More

We stopped in at the drugstore for ice cream; it was fun to sit at the counter and drink a malt. The 'soda fountain' captures a slice of Americana that has almost disappeared.

My daughter and I stumbled into this place after she badly grazed her leg in a fall. The pharmacist (Matthew I think) was brilliant! He took a look, patched her up enough to get back to the hotel and gave me all the right advice and supplies to treat her injuries over the next few days. On our way out,... More

I love to have lunch at Lyon's Drugstore! They have excellent tuna melts and grilled cheese sandwiches. Their sodas are amazing and it's one of the few places that serve Orangeade - fresh squeezed oranges (instead of lemonade or limeade). My kids love the cherry limeades and blackberry sodas too. Warning - service can be slow - the soda fountain... More
