The lunch counter at the Model Pharmacy, whose address is 3636 Monte Vista Boulevard where it meets Carlisle and Lomas Boulevrads, is wonderful. The place has a real lunch counter but also some tables and has waiter service. It's like an old-fashioned soda fountain, what...More

I love visiting this place everytime I come back to Albuquerque. They have a small diner in the store that serves excellent food. They also have an old fashioned soda machine. The pharmacy itself has tons of fragrances for both men and women, soaps, shaving...More

I probably wouldn't go out of my way to return, but an interesting place to get an ice cream soda and look at some old fashioned pharmacy items.

This place was very cool, there was a whole soda shoppe and ice cream fountain counter inside, along with several small tables for lunch. We ordered sandwiches for lunch, they were delicious and a perfect portion (not huge) and enjoyed the ambiance of the old-style...More

What a fun place to go for lunch. This is like an old fashioned soda fountain at a drug store. It isn't much of a pharmacy any longer....but sells high end hair fashions, hard to find perfumes and loads of unique shaving items. The cafe...More

I think the people that love Model Pharmacy remember a time when every town had a pharmacy with a lunch counter and love the nostalgia. The "restaurant" was certainly unique, homey and welcoming. Most of the customers seemed to be regulars. The employees were especially...More
