We found this place when we were in search of pizza. They serve by the slice which allowed everyone to get just what they wanted. One warning...a slice is about a quarter of a large pizza. The pizza was tasty & inexpensive. They had a singer performing out on the sidewalk where they have umbrella covered tables. We decided to... More

We stop by for ice cream every time we're in town. Cute, old-fashioned soda fountain with friendly staff & great sundaes!

The main drag in Venice can get a bit busy and pricey, the Soda Fountain fit the bill for a small family lunch. The food was fine, nothing too amazing, but not too expensive either. The main downside was the long time it took to place an order and get served. Bring a book or iPad to keep the kids... More

Pizza and ice cream, how can you go wrong. Whenever we am in Venice, this is where my daughter wants to eat. The pizza is large thin crust New York style. It is an authentic soda fountain with all kinds of phosphate drinks, malts, and egg cream drinks. There are so many great restaurants in Venice, but you have to... More

Although the cafe is nice with nice lunch dishes, very poor service. Service could not seam to get their act together either to have the order taken, get server or even to pay our bill. The food was good and prices reasonable

Ran downtown for desserts. They have best old fashion sundaes. One two or three dips. All the extras you could want. Their pizzas and salads will fill in also. Friendly staff who make your trip well with the trip. It's definitely an old fashion soda fountain with reminders of the past.

This place is like walking into a soda fountain in the 50's or 60's. Price is very reasonable and have some of the best hot dogs in the area.

Like stepping back in time. An authentic old fashioned soda fountain serving a wide variety of sundaes, ice cream sodas and malts. Also serving New York style thin crust hand-tossed pizza as well as delicious sandwiches and salads. There's something for everyone at The Soda Fountain.
