Love the interior nice retro vibe. Authentic old fashion soda shop. All of their drinks, floats and ice cream treats are delicious.

Family owned and operated, MacAlpine's is a super fun place to visit that has great food - real sodas!!! - and fun shopping for great antiques in all categories from clothes to furniture - all in one place. You'll love the homemade fifties style ice cream sodas, milk shakes and other goodies, but if you're looking for regular food, you'll... More

What a great place for desserts! We had shakes and sundaes that were amazing. My kiddo loved looking though the adjoining store. It's a bit cluttery, but cute.

Stopped here for a shake for me and a sundae for my friend. It was like stepping back in time. Price, service and ice cream were all good. If I lived closer or am in the area again I'd go back for sure!

More of a sandwich shop cold or hot. Looks like the specialty is different types of soda, like 100 different kinds. Also, it doubles as a furniture boutique. Great place to bring the family.

Came for lunch on Saturday. We both had burgers and then a piece of pie. Food was average but we came for the surroundings more than the food. Here's what was lacking: No character outside of the decor. There was no music playing, the menu isn't inspired by the Era. Just felt like this place could be so much more.... More

Step back in time. Old Coca Cola dispensers, and golden key ring cash registers. Historic piece of Phoenix since the 1930's, the old drug store - soda fountain place with spinning seats, and diner like counters. Great ambiance. While the malt may be $6.50 (and well worth it by the way) the food is a little less than what you... More

Went to Heard Museum and used apple GPS to find food places nearby thus our first try at MacAlpines. They use Thrifty ice cream and it is very good. Had soda and float. Sodas come in 90 flavors ours was pina colada. We had wrap and soup and turkey sandwich with salad. Food was okay, good, but it is not... More
