S&T's Soda Shoppe

Remember in the Graham, NC post when I went all nostalgic over the soda shoppe? Well, I don't have to drive to Graham anymore to get that experience! Right in downtown Pittsboro is the S&T Soda Shoppe which can get me nostalgic about a time in America I didn't even live in.

C and I stopped here on a visit to Pittsboro Toys and the Pittsboro Kiwanis Playground. This place is decked out with memorabilia from bygone times and is kitschy and fun to browse. Lots of things around here to catch your eye. There are booths and tables (and high chairs). And there is an ice cream counter to sit at - complete with a group of tweens fresh from school getting some ice cream.

We opted for a milkshake, but S&T's has a full service menu as well as ice cream scoops and candies. They have fizzie sodas! And I have to say the milkshake we got was huge and delicious. Prices were reasonable and service was friendly.

So take your family here and reminisce with them about how things used to be. Ya know, when you would walk to school in barefeet, uphill both ways.

We stopped here on a way back from the zoo. Perfect weather to check out the downtown. For the adults the African and French antiques store a block down is a treat for rare finds and lots of colorful artifacts for the the kids. It's a fairly kid friendly store.

Hey Heather- That antique store wasn't even on my radar, so thanks for the heads up. We seem to be heading to downtown Pittsboro more and more lately, so will have to check it out!
