“A must stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013 via mobile

If you like vintage. This is heaven!
The store doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside has a great boutique and a wonderful diner!
The have a fantastic soda bar with 99 flavors! They serve thrifty ice cream and their burgers are super tasty.

“Not like any other”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 October 2013

We've been to MacAlpine's several times over the years, & can recommend their lunch.
This time it was to indulge in a soda: best place in town for an old time soda fountain experience. The selection is amazing; many flavors unique to MacAlpine's. Our out of town friends loved it. Two rooms of antiques & vintage clothing, plus the diner stuffed with vintage collectables. Good prices. Our waitress was a gem, adding to the fun.

“Vintage and a walk through time for us.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2013

The soda fountain was really fun to see, and the food was tasty. The ice cream was excellent. And the vintage clothing and other items brought back memories. I noticed quite a few young adults buying vintage clothing. That was a pleasant surprise.

“Step back in time....nostalgia and great food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

I love this place. You can get a great lunch for 10 bucks. They have great antiques, cute waitresses, and egg cremes. I always get the chicken salad sandwich. Check it out. My grandkids
love the juke boxes at the table.
