Stopped in for some ice cream on a warm sunny day. The place was packed and noisy but fun. We sat at the counter. One scoop of ice cream is actually a double in other places. The ice cream was very good; mine was maple walnut. Quite a bit of old things scattered about-a real nostalgia trip. Would definitely stop... More

My grandson visited and stated that they had the best vanilla shake in the area. The ice cream is rich and flavorful. It took forever to finish.

On the way home from Carolina Tiger Rescue we stopped at S&T Soda Shoppe for a 'snack'. What a great step back in time! The Shoppe is wonderfully restored to yesteryear in so many ways. Very crowded - even at 1:30 in the afternoon but we got a seat at the counter...perfect. I couldn't resist the Grandpa's Apple Pie with... More

My friend and I had a superior lunch in this charming small restaurant. The service was splendid and the atmosphere warm and old-timey. Two menu items were outstanding: the chicken salad and the chocolate malt. I'm old and I've had lots of chicken salad, but theirs was really, really good. And the malt was huge and perfect: just the right... More

I'm kinda... addicted to waffle cones. I would prefer to eat ice cream in it and S&T delivered!!! Ordered their 1 scoop Premium Vanilla Bean x2 and Butter Pecan in a waffle cone (pictures attached) at roughly ~$4.50 each. I think the price was reasonable and the wait was minimal unlike my last trip to "Maple View Ice Cream Store"... More

Great , especially for lunch! The ice cream is great, many flavors, and the malteds are those of our dreams! Enough to share, but you want want to! Sundaes are scrumptious as well! We go whoever we are in town. Take the time to check out the 'decor'

Lively, sprawling ice cream and soda shop. The drinks (non-alcoholic) are fine as are the ice cream concoctions! The food is not. Burger grossly over cooked as was my grilled chicken. Vegetable soup was a bit sweet! Lovely place for kids and ice cream but better choices nearby for food.

This is fun place we visit Monthly. Dinners are decent but we come for the sundaes. I don't want to spoil the surprise.... lets just say the scoops are generous. Decked out like a turn of the 19th century pharmacy/ soda fountain the Decor is awesome and if you have questions about the antiques, the owner will fill you in.... More

This is a great family Soda Shoppe to take your family too. The food is delicious and the ice cream fantastic. It is an old-fashioned soda shop so you can imagine the malted shakes, sundaes and It take two to each the banana split. If you enjoyed the Ratskeller in Chapel Hill, this place makes the same lasagna and "gambler".

A sweet place to meet your friends, regroup after antiquing, or taking the family for a special treat. This is the real deal, where they can mix up some ice cream, old-fashioned sodas and malts, and great food.
