Going through the front door of the Olde Time Soda Fountain was like stepping back in time. I crossed the black and white checked floor and hopped up on a tall stool facing a long, spotless counter. I ordered a chocolate malt, which quickly arrived. The staff is adept at mixing sodas, packing ice cream, giving directions, and making recommendations.... More

We can not go through town without stopping in here for ice cream. It just doesn't seem right to come through Apalachicola and not stop in. Been coming here for over 20 years.

Ice cream and adorable vacation momentos (think shell creatures with googly eyes). Do you need it? No. Do you want it? Yes!

Because this is recommended as an old fashioned ice cream bar we wanted to visit. They offer basic sundaes, milkshakes, and sodas using Blue Bell Ice Cream. You can choose your own flavors for the ice cream and the toppings. The young girls working behind the counter are sweet, friendly and funny. They were very busy by the time we... More

Chocolate ice cream sodas, milkshakes, cones, malted shakes. Sit on a stool and go back in time. The young ladies working behind the counter are charmers. We love this place.

The staff were friendly. Tons of tourist-y souvenirs to look at. I had a banana split, which was good, but hardly worth the nearly nine dollar price. The place does, as other reviewers have pointed out, smell of moth balls.

This is a cute little stop if you're looking for kitschy souvenirs. The kids loved it because of course there are all the little toys and alligator stuff. Cute stop

They serve a variety of blue bell ice creams and others. Great atmosphere for kids. Great stop for after lunch or during a walk around town.

Nice place to pick up a trinket or souvenir. Very friendly young lady behind the counter made us ice cream floats that were terrific and refreshing on a hot day. Nice place to just sit for a few minutes and enjoy an ice cream.
