7107 Kentucky Rt. 56, Sebree, KY - (270) 835-7544
A working pharmacy with shelves of patent medicines and nick-nacks for sale and a short soda fountain counter up front. Here is where milk shakes are whirled, sundaes and floats constructed, and cherry Cokes brewed to order. The lemon ice is something different: fresh lemon juice poured over crushed ice and seasoned with a dash of salt.

Bell's lemon ice is a strange and refreshing soda fountain concoction: fresh-squeezed juice in a large cup of crushed ice with a dash of salt. No sugar at all.

After ordering our orangeades, we watched the young lady squeeze the oranges.  It doesn't get any fresher than that!

Next to the juicer for lemons and oranges is the milk shake mixer. We were struck by how impeccably clean everything was behind the counter.

Bell's is a peaceful place to sip an ade. As customers entered, it seemed natural to strike up easy conversations while they enjoyed their soda fountain treats.
