“Very retro place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

They have a diner inside like they used to have at Woolworth. I liked buying some of the retro candy from the old days.

“FUN !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I love this old time drug store. If you are ready for step back in time then this is the place. They do carry all of the modern conveniences but a trip to the luncheon counter is great. Brings back a lot of fond memories of old time luncheonettes. Right in the center of downtown Canal St. in New Smyrna Beach Fl.

“A Bit of Americana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

If you want to go back in time to an earlier era (now referred to as "Mid-Century"), have breakfast or lunch at the soda fountain complete with stools and booths at The Little Drug Company. It looks like a "Back to The Future" film set. Friendly staff, good food and other traditional items such as sodas, floats, etc. with large portions at reasonable prices. Fun to take the kids to show them what used to be ( other than Disney recreations) before the chains took over. The menu features specials on different days and they have a "Cruise Night" occasion on the 2nd Saturday of each month when owners of the collectible cars are on Canal Street. While there browse the rest of the store as they have books about New Smyrna Beach and items that you didn't know you needed until you see them. Check out their website for hours and pictures at littledrug.com/fountain.html. My family always tries to stop by when we are in town.
