Opened in 1951 across from Davidson College, The Soda Shop has been a tradition with students, locals and visitors. It is an original and one of the last of a vanishing era. If you crave nostalgia or want to drift back to your college days or childhood this is the place. The walls may not talk, but they tell a story of the history of the restaurant and customers. Join us in this comfortable, timeless environment where people gather to eat, drink and socialize. You never know who might be at the next booth or table! Homemade egg salad, chicken salad, tuna salad, pimento cheese, cream cheese and olive and chili. Fresh squeezed limes, orangeade & lemonade, vegetarian selections, Melts, Wraps, Black Angus burgers, Hot Dogs & Fry Menu. Real deal shakes & 12 Item Kid’s Menu. Afterward, take a stroll along the expansive brick sidewalks past the trees that line Main Street. It’s an idyllic setting that is most perfect in its simplicity and charm.
