A really different and nice place for lunch. A nice selection of sandwiches and sides, but the real draw is the soda fountain. How many of you fountain veterans have had the chance to order a Green River or Chocolate Coke in the last 25 years?

My mom and I stopped here on a whim on our way to Denver. We were looking for a place to eat and she spotted the Soda Shoppe Cafe which looked cute and has sandwiches, salad bar and old fashioned sodas. I got a BLT that was pretty good, but very tiny, and came with cottage cheese, potato salad or... More

It is a soda shop, but the quality is there. If you have time stop in on a hot day. There is plenty to see just in the shop, antiques, office supplies.

Granted this is a small town but we went by a couple times trying to catch them there and they were never open. Too bad, a "real fountain soda" would have been great in the hot afternoon.

My husband and I were antique shopping and looking to get a quick bite to eat. Luckily for us, The Soda Shoppe Cafe was right across the street. The fare is simple and reasonably priced. We both had sandwiches with potato salad and they were delicious. We also opted to split a chocolate brownie sundae - yummmm. Good thing we... More

You enter through an office supply and antique store. It was a great environment and feel. I ordered the special, which was a white lasagna. Very tasty and the portion was fine. The kids ordered sandwiches and I will say the wraps were very small. Small enough that they asked to stop somewhere as we left as a couple were... More

Went there for lunch with my wife, daughter and son in law. You enter through an older office supply store and into a Soda Shop straight out of the fifties. They serve sandwiches, salads and wraps and well as flavored soda's, milkshakes and desserts. Food was good and service was prompt even though it was pretty busy. OK value for... More
