The shop is a small pharmacy style store with some local souvenirs. But the soda fountain at the back is super fun. It's a fun throw back kinda place and I recommend you check it out.

When I was growing up every drug store had a soda fountain, and they all offered ice cream sodas. Now it's very hard to find a descent ice cream soda anywhere. Saugatuck Drugstore makes the best authentic ice cream sodas I have had in years....More

Almost missed the Soda Fountain. Happened to wander through the store and, lo and behold, there was Hudsonville Ice Cream being sold. Every time we go to Michigan to see family we seek out Hudsonville Ice Cream. The Cherry chocolate chip is the best!

Great to see a drugstore in town, especially if you need something quick! Seemed to have everything, too. The staff was helpful and friendly. Clean and well stocked. There are t- shirts and souvenirs, also.

The fountain is closed during the off season, but they have a HUGE selection of souvenir shirts, hats, etc. The staff was very nice and you need to go in and see all the stuff!

Description
This Old Fashioned Soda Fountain is a staple for locals in Saugatuck. It has been here since 1913. It is in the back of the drug store. Coincidentally, kiddie-corner to Kilwins. What is great about this soda fountain, is that they do make old-fashioned sodas with heaps of ice-cream - and local Hudsonville Ice-Cream. Even better, this is a hidden gem for families in this ever-so growing, expensive tourist town (I am from nearby Grand Rapids....and FYI...the reason I had so many reviews last year, I took a year off to explore my #1 passion -traveling- from my real job (litigation); so if you would like an attorney turned writer/traveler/reviewer, I would be a great fit. But why it is a hidden gem for families: the Soda Fountain has hot dogs, fries, small $3 pizzas, pretzels - all the small stuff little kids love and that would make them happy after a hot day on the boat or at the beach, along with a small ice-cream cone or old-fashioned root-beer float. It's a great place.
