One of our best enjoyment in the little town of Pittsboro is to go to the S&T. The owners have not changed the antique features, such as the tin ceiling, and the ice cream fountain and the stools since it was built. We love to sit in one of the booth and my husband and I reminisce about the days... More

There are places that you go to--and that you take people to--because they are authentic,fun and just plain old good. Come here for good old fashioned neighborly fun and great food. S & T Soda Shoppe has the decor of an old pharmacy but the fun of happy,youthful {and by that, not everyone is young, they just have that energy}... More

Lunch at S&T was a good experience. The steak and cheese sandwich and chops were yummy. I saved room for a cup of black walnut and was not disappointed. What a great way to spend time in Pittsboro. We explored the shops near the soda shoppe, visited the town of Bynum and a local pottery shop. Looking forward to a... More

We were there today and had hot fudge sundays which were one scoop of ice cream and rather small for $6.00 each. The last time we were there they were much larger and worth the rather high price.

cute little ice cream shop. they have done a great job of re-creating the interior to look old fashion. the server was nice enough to tell us that a "single dip" cone is the equivalent of 4 scoops, which was good to know as double would've been way too much for 1 person to eat. we didn't order any food,...

The S&T is a must place to bring visitors to. Antique setting with outstanding banana splits (fed seven in our party) and delicious milkshakes and sundaes. A place to be refreshed by delicious products and setting.
