Like stepping back in time

Has all the charm from yesteryear. A busy, fun place. If you get a sandwich have it on the Sunflower Bread it's very, very good. If you order a sundae be prepared to share. They are huge and have your camera ready if you order the Banana Split because no one will believe you when you try to... read more

We waited 20 mins before anyone helped us. We were lied to about what was in the mixed ice cream. The prices are expensive for disgusting ice cream that is NOT made in house or local. Instead it's low quality factory produced. We will never come back to this place again.

what an outstanding establishment! the food exceeded expectations, and the staff was very friendly. the decor was very interesting and historic, and reminded me of the soda shoppes of days gone by. it was probably one of my favorite dining experiences so far....would visit again.

Beautiful old-school soda fountain with very friendly staff. The chocolate milk shake was one of the best I have had in my life! Tons of Coke and other antique memorabilia and beautiful woodwork on the soda fountains on both the first and second floors.

Good food, good atmosphere, REAL ice cream in many many flavors, and to my taste, a GREAT Steak Sandwich. Fair prices too. They are a little small and are often crowded and family owned so they have to close sometimes before I can get there. Worth trying again though.

Truly beautiful shop with huge mahogany shelving units, tin ceilings, and tile floors, designed to look like an old time pharmacy. Ice Cream treats are wonderful and gigantic! Food is so-so. But that's not why you're there. Banana split for dinner!

Wow - what a fun restaurant with a retro feel. The waitstaff are very friendly and my family enjoyed the lunch selection and of course an amazing hot fudge sundae for dessert. Everyone that visits Pittsboro has to try S&T Soda Shoppe

S&T is a mid-20th century soda shop. The interior is vintage and it looks great. The food is merely OK - just burgers, grilled and fried stuff mostly - not bad but not great. Their desserts (milkshakes, floats, ice cream sundaes, etc.) are the real reason to go there, along with the ambiance. It's great for kids.

We drove to Pittsboro just to see what was there and stopped at the soda shoppe because of a friend's suggestion. We ordered the pimento cheeseburger, a malt milk shake, and fries. Truthfully, the burger and fries were about average, but the milkshake was delicious. Our server and the owner were some of the nicest people, and the decor is... More
