Sweet Moses Soda Fountain and Treat Shop is a must-visit place if you're in Cleveland -- an authentic soda fountain and ice cream shop -- just like what your parents and grandparents loved! Ice cream makers are hard at work in the back churning out wonderful flavors. Sweet Moses thinks of everything -- offering vegan dark chocolate and vegan vanilla... More

I love the 40's turn back of time. The soda jerk look of the waiter & waitress as they make your sundae. We visited yesterday, it was a bit buzy, the waiter did a terrible job wiping the counter top & tables with the customers left over napkins. (Sticky) I didn't get a pretzel with my sundae which is a... More

This shop is so charming and fun to visit. Lots of sweets available, from candy to ice cream sundaes! I am also happy to report that they have vegan ice cream - and it's delicious! I had a sundae with the vegan ice cream, and I was so pleased. The presentation of the sundaes is really fun. Very vintage feel... More

Literally not a bad option unless you're watching your waistline. Not sure how they do it and there are many great ice creams but this is as close as it gets to heaven

Certainly worth a trip down there. Could only remember the name phosphate, which I tried, but was like cherry cough syrup. I can see why they wen tout of fashion. No argument over the bananas foster milkshake, tho. It was great!

So my boyfriend and I are on a quest to try milkshakes all over the city. This week was Sweet Moses. I LOVE the decor. Classic right down to the old ornate registers. The bar is superb as well. One milkshake is $6. A large is $6.75. This comes complete with a large paper straw swirl and everything. (and made... More

We love places like this and were eager to try Sweet Moses. What we found felt a little more like manufactured old school than authentic old school, but was still a hit. The class of this category is Franklin Fountain in Philadephia. This is not to that level, but it's in the ballpark. Ice cream is huuuuuuge. One of us... More
