    Old fashioned soda and ice cream counter. The owner is usually there, and loves to talk about the history of the shop when asked. I had the pimento cheese sandwich and a lemonade. Really good!

    For a little taste of nostalgia, grab a stool at this old-school pharmacy's soda fountain and order a chocolate malt and grilled cheese (or an orange sherbet freeze and tuna salad). [Eater 38 Member]

    The owner, sonny is super friendly. He said the cherry shakes is the best and goose liver sandwich is a local favorite. Lunch is pack to the door so come early at 11am to guarantee a spot

    Try the Palm Beach: cheddar-based pimento cheese (with jalapeños or without) between two slices of white, wheat, or rye, and cooked up on the ancient griddle.

    Century old gem! Great prices and even better milkshakes. Fun to take a step back in time to an authentic soda-fountain.

    Brownies are prepackaged & heated in microwave. Hot dogs also cooked in microwave. Choc cherry shake & sundae taste like something you'd make at home but are good.

    The sandwiches are 1950's portions so I would recommend a cup of soup on the side. The tomato basil was wonderful.

    Crowded and a little unorganized, but interesting items and (for the most part) friendly staff.
