Love the old fashioned malt shop, but there are kids from the college that congregate outside and smoke cigarettes too...that's a drag. pardon the pun, but I am serious, it's no fun having to wave your hand in front of your face to escape some guys nasty rotten stench Last time I was in here, I noticed a lot of...

Stopped here quick right when they opened for the day. Great little malt Shoppe with counter service and table service on separate sides. Had a delicious pumpkin malted shake for the ride to Hershey camping. Very friendly service! Definitely worth the stop.

I don't get downtown Kutztown very often, so this was my first time at Pop's. The hard ice cream was delicious (Leiby's) and generously served! The decor is charming 50's. My friend and I enjoyed a game of checkers that was placed on our table. Can't wait to try their sundaes and splits...we had to behave because we just came... More

Had lunch here a few years ago and it was okay. This time the family stopped in for dessert. They have many ice cream flavors and specialties in the accessible freezer such as chocolate covered cheesecake on a stick and huge ice cream cookie sandwich.

Pop's works hard at giving you a 50's nostalgia buzz along with your ice cream with an ice cream parlor room, 50's music and cheery high school student servers. It started out small a few years ago and I have been glad to see it expand as it prospers.

The actual food was microwaved in front of me. It was gross. I would only get ice cream here and that's only if the quality shoppe isn't open. It's nothing impressive.

It was a disappointment all around. The food was not freshly made. My kid who loves chicken nuggets refused to eat it. The hot dogs looked like they were sitting for a while and the hot dog buns were cold and fell apart as you ate. The '50s decor was scarce or non-exisitent. And the service was terrible. 1 girl...

When something is done right, it is done right and Pop's Malt Shoppe is bloody brilliant! Pop's has created a venue that is fun, welcoming and friendly for patrons of all ages and walks of life. Pop, himself, is ALWAYS FREINDLY and just a great person! Wish he was open all year long!

I started coming to Pop's when it was still the Bean Cellar downstairs and I fell in love with the people and the environment. Pop always has a smile on his face and people come to the shop just to see him. The food is great and the ice cream is awesome. They are always friendly and cater to whatever... More
