“Cute but not what we expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We stayed here maybe 10 minutes, more of a gift shop than anything else. Loved the Pepsi they had on tap there. They were currently working on the building when we came by so we didn't really have a chance to speak to anyone working there (they were too busy going back and forth moving things around.) Hoping to go back sometime in the future to see what we can find out since the work should be long done by now :) (Originally visited October 2011)

“Big whoop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Just a store. Was at least expecting it to look like it would have with Caleb Bradham had it. No pharmacy counter or anything. Just a store.

“If you are into Pepsi you've gone to heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

If your a Pepsi Junkie, this is where it all started. There is nothing Pepsi you can't find.

If your a Coke Person, go to Manteo, on Roanoke Island, NC on the island.

“Cute, but.....”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

The birth place of Pepsi is a cute little gift shop with an adjoining museum. It will take maybe 15 minutes of your time.
