Soda Shop


For a step back in time take a trip to The Soda Shop where sweet tooths are satisfied and authentic experiences had. The front of the house offers all the classic candy and old-school memorabilia you can handle. The antique soda fountain whips up egg creams and other tasty treats for sipping while you survey the goods. Stop in for full blown breakfast or a savory lunch. Feeling thirsty? Wander into the High Tea Hideaway in the back for a break with a biscuit and tea. The whole place is housed at the Cosmopolitan Hotel, the longest operating hotel where it is rumored Abraham Lincoln lodged. In homage to old New York, The Soda Shop is a sweet blast from the past.
