I discovered this place by pure accident. It is located inside a building with an antique shop and office supply store. The service was excellent, the coffee hour and a decent salad bar. Process were reasonable and they had a good selection of sandwiches. The grape tomatoes were not ripe and a bit sour.

Love the fresh ingredients at this little cafe. The salad bar is the best in Hays and there is so much variety on it. Everything in this place is delicious.

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?

They have wonderful specials each day and I've always had very good food. Great milk shakes! They also have a soda fountain.

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.

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
