Like grandma used to make!

Although this location for the Owl only dates back about a dozen years, the soda fountain has been serving thirsty folks in Wenatchee since 1926. The folks behind the counter are friendly and chatty and, most important, they know what they're doing! My wife and I ordered ice cream sodas and watched... read more

This is an ice cream establishment, not necessarily the best place for lunch. They do serve a couple different sandwiches and soup, but they are known for their ice cream sodas, sundaes, milk shakes and banana splits. This is also a gift shop and there is a juke box.a great place for a birthday party for kids.

I must stop by there on a daily basis for an ice cream fix or quick cup of soup. They always have the best gifts for anyone and gift wrap. The best part is the smiles and great customer service from Pam & Jeri. A historic staple of Wenatchee!

Quaint with great ice cream treats. We went with a group and tried root beer floats, malts, and ice cream cones. All were excellent and the service was great, too!

This soda fountain has been in its current location for 12 years and for years before that down the street in the old Owl Drug.The ice cream treats are all made by hand just like they were when I was a child. Phosphates, ice cream sodas, sundaes, malts and many more threats. Just ask and they will make what ever... More

Great place to take the kids for a old time milk shake, ice cream soda, cone and more. Got the old time jute box too. Don't expect a great meal, just microwaved sandwiches. The help or service is great too. This place has been around for generations. Took my kids when they were little, and now my grandkids. They keep... More

The Owl Soda Fountain has been somewhat of a Wenatchee landmark for years! The soda fountain, though small, offers a unique experience, complete with a jukebox that plays real 45 RPM records. The menu features not just milkshakes, but a lineup of classic soda fountain favorites like phosphates and egg creams, all made the old-fashioned way. The prices may seem... More

The Owl Soda Fountain is straight out of the 1950s. Get an old fashioned milk shake hand made with good ice cream. Get a hot fudge Sunday or an old fashioned ice cram soda. Can't beat it.
