Call me old fashioned, but I really enjoy those eating establishments that appeal to all my senses. I walk into Soda and Scoops on Route 66, Rolla, and smell, taste, feel, hear and see the same elements that were present in our local soda shop when I was growing up. I am transported to another time and place.
This little shop teases the past with décor that includes Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola memorabilia, soda shop style tables and chairs, tin ceiling, and interesting signage. Oh, and don’t miss the wonderful little “bicycle” chairs at one of the tables. Super cute!
And the taste! So many choices of ice-cream, served in a variety of ways. I had to have an old-fashioned root-beer float. Nostalgic! And Splendid! They also have specials advertised on their Facebook page.
Interestingly, you can “hear” the pleasantry in this business. Not only did I hear a server singing along with the throw-back music, but I also heard a customer join in. Nice to know you can be comfortable enough in a restaurant to “experience” the music. Check it out—819 N. Pine, Rolla.
A delight for the senses. Partake!
