Our malt and chocolate soda were great, and the 50s soda fountain atmosphere (except for the somewhat tacky souvenirs and decorations) authentic. But come on -- serving a malt in a plastic glass and made in a blender? Please, invest in an old-style Hamilton Beach milk shake maker with stainless steel mixing containers and a set of real malt glasses!

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

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.

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!
