The Soda Shop
Around the corner from the Davidson College campus is a portal to a bygone time. At least that's how The Soda Shop's retro diner space, complete with chrome barstools, black-and-white tile floors, and a wall full of golden-age celebrity portraits, might seem to an unacquainted visitor. Originally founded in 1951, the café retains many of its original fixtures, including the wooden booths and a vintage cash register, and staffers still hand-mix egg creams and shakes the way soda jerks did before they were replaced by spatula-handed robot butlers. In addition to grilling diner favorites that include cheeseburgers, layered sandwiches, and hot dogs, the chefs also fill bowls with steaming servings of chili and homemade soups.
