“A solid meal with good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2014

This is one of the few places open for lunch and it was busy, although we got a table right away. The service was good and the food, while simple, was tasty. Most of the menu is soup and sandwiches with a few "home cooking" entrees. The ice cream was good for dessert.

“Great sandwiches and old Soda Shop Flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2014

This is my second visit to the Soda Shop. I always enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and good food. We had a table in the back with an electric fan! This shop is close to the waterfront and is among the intersting shops on the main street that opens onto the view of Edenton Bay and the lighthouse.

“A Sweet Small Town Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

There is nothing particularly fancy about the Soda Shoppe but it reminds me of places in my younger years. It has a nice little family vibe with a counter where you can sit and enjoy your ice cream or a shake. There is table service for a leisurely lunch with friends and pretty decent sandwiches. Try the Chero chicken salad which is made from a recipe served in the now closed Cheros restaurant. Yummy. I always take time when visiting Edenton to drop into the Soda Shoppe. It's a friendly small town restaurant.

“Lunch ??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014

The special the day we had lunch at Downtown Cafe & Soda Shoppe was chicken salad. The sandwich and the wrap were both very good. The service was also very good.
