This is an eclectic soda shop complete with old fashioned drug store paraphanelia lining the walls. In the heat of the summer we've stopped here for a true soda, ice-cream sundae or milkshake.

This time we dropped in for lunch about 1:30 on a Friday afternoon. Plenty of parking. The interior was packed, so we elected to sit outside in the sunshine. The menu includes salads and many sandwhiches. I had a soup and sandwich, (tomate bisque and half of a reuben) while my wife enjoyed a pmento cheese sandwich. Service was a tad slow, but the place was mobbed and they had a large party going on inside. Tab came to $21. I discovered later that in addition to sodas, tea and water they also serve bottled beer.

This is a fun place to visit, the food is good and reasonably priced.

Cute preserved pharmacy and soda shop. The staff and atmosphere were nice but the food was not so great. The burgers were bland and the fries were not the best. Prices were good.

This location is a bit more casual than many yet the food and the ice cream are very good. A smaller setting makes conversation a little more difficult than some places but the friendliness of the staff makes up for it. I would recommend it for a sandwich or a salad and of course for the ice cream.
