We made numerous stops in here for ice cream and pizza. Best pizza we found in the area. Great selection of ice cream treats - many things which you don't see on menus anymore.

Love taking our grandchildren for old time soda fountain real deal root beer floats and cokes. The Pizza is great too! Venice is a step back in time and this place tops the lists of where to take your company.

This is a cute little restaurant with good food at an excellent price. Go on Tuesdays for live entertainment by a great guitarist/vocalist.

While enjoying the downtown festival today in Venice we stopped to have the most wonderful root beer float! Best we ever had! Take time to visit.

Like most diners this place serves sandwiches, burgers and tasty sweet treats. I had the malted milkshake and boy was it good! They serve other fare, but his is all I had for now. Next time I will order a meal and let you know how that is. They had a good variety of foods, so I want to sample... More

This was our first visit to Venice Beach and as we headed out of town on Sunday afternoon, this "old-fashioned diner" caught our eye. A few in our party wanted lunch at the diner and a few were pushing to go to "Vinnie's Pizzeria" next door. Imagine our surprise and delight when we found out it was co-owned and an... More

We actually found the place by accident, going in via the pizza parlor side. We went in for lunch, and the food was excellent. We went back again, and ordered something different. That too was extremely tasty. You are surrounded by sumptuous ice creams, and the decor is inviting--reminding one of an old ice cream parlor. We will certainly be... More

The ambience of an old time soda fountain is great. You can't beat the children's menu and prices. Forget McD's. The check board floors bring back memories, food is good.

We stopped in here to get ice cream sodas but ended up staying for BLT's, hotdogs and chicken salad sandwiches. All passed muster with the kids. Giant Root Beer Float and Caramel ice cream Sodas arrived and also got a thumbs up. Nice old fashioned soda fountain/diner style place right in the center of Venice with lots of interesting retro...

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
