With its recent addition of an authentic soda fountain, Lofty Pursuits dishes frozen retro treats using the same techniques, equipment, and glassware used by neighborhood soda jerks in the 1940s. Menu items include the Diesel Sundae ($6), where Guinness ice cream is covered in coffee syrup and chocolate-whipped cream. Those looking for a unique treat can engulf a Brooklyn style egg cream ($3) or sip on a Green River lime-sherbet soda ($6). Handmade sodas ($3) from a vintage soda machine come in tasty flavors like cherry, blueberry and peach, while ice cream sundaes include the Black and White ($6), where both chocolate and vanilla ice cream happily mingle. Lofty Pursuits also offers shakes, such as the Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake ($7), which is topped with a freshly toasted marshmallow, and the Mayan Chocolate ($6) with its spicy cocoa flavors. Coffee and tea are also available, as well as free wi-fi, Uno, and Trivial Pursuit, for those that want to show off their historical knowledge while they scarf down their snack.
