MacAlpine’s Soda Fountain Restaurant Review

: MacAlpine’s is a blast from the past. The shop dates back to 1928 and little has changed from the original old-time wooden soda bar, black-and-white tile floor, retro red chairs, and high-back wood booths. The stars are the ice cream drinks, of course, including malts, shakes, phosphate sodas, egg creams or soda in one of the 30-something flavors from sarsaparilla to bubble gum to strawberry-banana. There’s even a dill pickle sundae for the more adventurous. Food is just the basics, but it’s homemade and tasty: burgers, grilled cheese, a real Sloppy Joe or a Reuben, all served with a scoop of potato salad, Hawaiian coleslaw, carrot raisin salad, carrot and celery sticks or potato chips.
