The soda fountain menu is pretty extensive and one can customize most of them. I opted out for a shake whose price was worth the flavor, size and the fact it was hand-made and topped with delicious whipped cream. I didn't taste any of the...More

More than just a good local Pharmacy, this place boasts an old time soda fountain. All the best flavors of Malts, Shakes, Rickeys and Phosphates. Very good ice cream by itself too!

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.

We stopped in for a snack after my daughter got out of school and we had the BEST banana split. We also got some fresh bread pudding to go. I remember visiting the Model Pharmacy growing up and it has not changed. The young woman...More
