This is a great place to stop by, and enjoy a soda, shake, or one of their lunch menu items at their old-fashioned lunch counter. It is a real working drugstore, and a throwback to better times.

Love this place. Great food and service for a quick lunch. I love the old soda fountain decor/atmosphere. And you can get your prescriptions filled while you eat. Staff are super nice. The food is fresh and simple.

This is a great old-fashioned lunch counter serving high quality diner-type breakfasts, lunches and soda fountain creations. We sampled a fair number of all things and were pleased with the quality of the food and the service in a quaint, old-fashioned atmosphere. The milkshakes were exceptionally good. As an added plus, the pharmacy sells an excellent selection of premium toiletries from around the world, from Italian and English shaving and grooming supplies to German soaps. If you go for a meal, you'll probably end up browsing their charmingly displayed array of tempting items. A unique and appealing place.

We continue to return to Model Pharmacy often for lunch many years after we discovered this place. I usually have the beef brisket sandwich and my wife often has the ham and brie sandwich. We always like the food here.

It is not widely known because it is not advertised as a luncheon place. It has a lunch counter and several tables, much as you would expect from a drug store of decades ago. It is privately owned by a personable fellow, Jack. There seems to be a large clientele who return repeatedly.

We have lunch there whenever we are in the vicinity. (It also has a breakfast menu, but we are never there for breakfast.)

Get a malt and a snawich. You'll be glad you did.
