RE: Top Ten Soda Fountains
I ate at two old fashioned soda fountains over the weekend around Buffalo. Actually, they are both candy stores that also serve ice cream.
Parkside Candy is an amazing looking place on the inside. The oval room was decorated so you feel like just stepped out of a time machine. Apparently, they filmed some of the scenes for "The Natural" there, which should tell you how old it looks. The ice cream sundae itself was fine, but the atmosphere is what made this place interesting.
I also ate at Condrell's Candy & Ice Cream, which has more of a 50's feel. They use Perry ice cream here, which I enjoyed (especially the cinnamon flavor), but the excellent hot fudge and whipped cream were what made the sundae so impressive.
