This pharmacy seems lost in time. It is so quaint and fun to see. The place is tiny and can get very busy but the experience is worth the wait. We just got ice cream floats but they offer meals too. Worth a visit

Such a fun environment! Walk into the pharmacy through an old screen door and the counter is right there. They make delicious grilled cheese sandwiches as well as a great curried chicken salad which I get on toasted rye. YUM! But you must try their...More

We stopped in for a cool ice cream soda and loved the vibe of the old counter and all of the items....toys, souvenirs and such that were on display and for sale. An old-time feel to the drugstore was nice.

Small menu but such a fun place to sit or get take-out. I think tourists love it too because it's an old fashion lunch counter. Very popular spot for ice cream and malts.
