After a long day of hiking and a cold brew up the street in Bryson City, we decided that ice cream sounded great! But alas, it was very late, and unless we would be stopping at a convenient store on our way to our overnight spot, there was no way we were going to be lucky enough to have any.... More

Soda Pops is a quaint spot in Bryson City. The ice cream portions are generous and the price is reasonable. The staff is very courteous. The major drawback is they do not accept debit or credit cards.

50s small town feel. Friendly staff. The custom blends are great and portion size perfect. Amazing value for money compared to other side of smokies.

The ice cream was good, but the gentleman who served us was very snippy. It was very busy in the ice cream shop. They should have more people helping or just be more friendly. I also did not like that they did not list prices for all the different ice cream options.

Thank you for your honest review, yes some times we get caught short handed but we take our time to take care of each customer. Don't think I was "Snippy". As far as our prices, they are listed on the board above the Milkshake machines. More

We enjoyed our visit to Soda Pops! Service was great as well as the atmosphere. We are our ice cream out side and watched people go in and out of the shop. Everyone enjoyed their visit. Every town needs a Soda Pops!

Yes, there are several stores that serve Ice Cream in Bryson City, but, Soda Pops is number ONE!!! The young man dishing out the wonderful ice cream flavors was very professional, efficient and friendly. And was amazed to find out that they can blend flavors to create your own. Please visit you will not be disappointed.

We were just looking for a place to enjoy ice cream! Didn't sign up for the rudeness of the teenage staff (they didn't offer taste samples, didn't describe flavors or kinds of cones or cups, and were on their phones.) They treated the local people they knew very well and treated everyone else like garbage. We eventually went across the... More

This is a super cute little ice cream shop whose employees are inexplicably rude to tourists. We actually got a little kick out of the rude treatment and now we yell at each other when we make ice cream for the kids. :) Maybe you'll have a different experience.
