    »Soda Pops

    Quaint and retaining an old world charm, Soda Pops has a very old american feel to it. You can sample some lip smacking candies, malts and shakes here. Their coca cola fixation is the major eye catcher, as coke symbols can be viewed on every imaginable surface of the parlor. The custom blended ice creams include flavors like White Russian, Toffee Coffee, Cinnamon etc. Worth visiting for all those with a sweet tooth and for those who want to travel back in time, when long skirts and bow ties were the trend.
