“We All Scream for Ice Cream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

We loved the Olde Time Soda Fountain so much we made two trips there in the three days we stayed in Apalachicola. HAD to have an ice cream cone and it was sooooo good, we HAD to have another the next day. Looking at the souvenirs, t-shirts, shells, and knick-knacks will keep you entertained while you enjoy your cone. You can find that perfect "trip t-shirt" to take home too!

“Kitschy but fun”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

This is a combo tourist trap/ice cream parlor that sells all kinds of the usual seaside knick-knacks alongside their ice cream. I think the air conditioning was down when we visited, it was rather hot inside, but the weather was gorgeous so we sat outside. They had all the usual flavors of ice cream and we enjoyed what we had.

“Fun and kitschy, but plastic glasses?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our malt and chocolate soda were great, and the 50s soda fountain atmosphere (except for the somewhat tacky souvenirs and decorations) authentic. But come on -- serving a malt in a plastic glass and made in a blender? Please, invest in an old-style Hamilton Beach milk shake maker with stainless steel mixing containers and a set of real malt glasses!

“Get some ice cream while you shop downtown”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a neat old fashioned soda fountain and ice cream bar conveniently located in the heart of historic downtown Apalachicola . Yummy ice cream and more, like shakes, floats and sundaes. You will enjoy the friendly service. Visit the gift shop for Florida souvenirs. Parking on the street can be tricky in the busy season. Seating is limited
