“Get some ice cream while you shop downtown”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

This is a neat old fashioned soda fountain and ice cream bar conveniently located in the heart of historic downtown Apalachicola . Yummy ice cream and more, like shakes, floats and sundaes. You will enjoy the friendly service. Visit the gift shop for Florida souvenirs. Parking on the street can be tricky in the busy season. Seating is limited

“ICE CREAM THE RIGHT WAY!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

Not only is this place a soda fountain from the past, but there are so many things to see, especially beautiful shells for sale. It is a tourist stop, for sure, but it a great place to either sit inside or sit outside and eat your ice cream or dessert.

“Old fashion, super friendly and delicious flavors, Oh yes!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Loved the varied selection of Gelato flavors and the quick and friendly service too. As a photography lover, I enjoyed the prints on the wall of this large but fairly quiet refreshment store. The open, large area is comfortable and filled with lots of goodies! We look forward to returning here again and bringing lots of friends! It is such a pleasure to see early Americana little shops like this one, still alive and doing well in this day and age!

“A step back in time”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Enter a time when the local soda fountain was 'the place' to meet your friends. A lot of 'tourist' items but an underlying connection to the quieter days of the '50's.
