If you want to turn back the time to the late 50's and early 60's then go to this 5 & 10 store. Reminds me of the Woolworth stores back when. A real NY city style egg cream! Old fountain style area in the back....More

This was not so much like an old days five and dime, but more like a store full of souvenir junk, but it did have a nice old operational soda fountain where I got an orange cow, which was pretty good. Nothing else really nostalgic...More

Margie D's Soda Fountain, located in the back of Dellas 5&10, is a classic 1950's era soda fountain right down to the paper hats on the soda jerks. We offer 11 fixed stools at our counter and two booths to serve our customers. The fountain serves all of the classic american favorites along with a wide variety of classic dessert offerings. Meanwhile, Dellas 5&10 sells everything you would expect in a five and dime store including candy and gum, paper goods, daily newspapers, lottery tickets, health and beauty aids, party supplies, beach gear, clothing, souvenirs, toys and games, hardware items, cleaning supplies, cigarettes, greeting cards, etc. The Dellas family welcomes and encourages folks to browse and relax. Feel free to take a soda fountain menu home as a souvenir!
