I was looking forward to bringing our family here for a meal or snack and we did so the day we browsed and shopped on the Washington Mall. The store had a cute vintage feel, but shelves and racks kind of lined up near the wall had only pricey souvenir stuff. Nothing we were interested in comparatively. The soda fountain/bar... More

This place takes you back in time when life was slower and more relaxed. Great store and in the back is a old time soda fountain bar for some great deals on ice cream, milk shakes, burgers, all day breakfast, and all at below average prices! A must visit place.

Hi BRK82, I really appreciate your kind review of my family's 5&10 featuring Margie D's Soda Fountain. I especially liked your feelings about how being in our store brings you back to a slower and more relaxed time in life. That is truly what we wanted to capture and we all feel as you do while working there and conversing... More

Thank heavens for this handy five and dime, which has been at this location for ages. Although it was renovated a few short years ago, it has a lingering smell of hot dogs that have been on the grill far too long. This odiferous aroma definitely detracts from what could be a nostalgic shopping experience.

If you want to turn back the time to the late 50's and early 60's then go to this 5 & 10 store. Reminds me of the Woolworth stores back when. A real NY city style egg cream! Old fountain style area in the back. Terrific!

While visiting Cape May, we wandered into Della's 5 & 10. This brought back memories of the 5 & 10 that I grew up with. There was a fountain in the back to quench your thirst. You can find just about anything you may need for the beach.

This was not so much like an old days five and dime, but more like a store full of souvenir junk, but it did have a nice old operational soda fountain where I got an orange cow, which was pretty good. Nothing else really nostalgic about the place though.

Robert looked the part of a old fashion server, but had the worst attitude. We sat down and he just stared at us from behind the counter. We politely asked him if we were to come up to the counter to place an order and was told he would take our order "when ready"(whatever that means). He was unpleasant, rude... More

The Soda Fountain at this place is good, but the guy with the reddish blonde mustache who helped us was impatient. He wasn't happy to help us. My mom and I just wanted an egg cream each.

Dellas 5 & 10 can pack so much in so little space. Did I mention they do so in an attractive manner. Not only do they sell normal, necessary everyday items, but it is a great shop for tourist items without the huge price tag. We saw some of the same things in what may be called a finer shop,...

Margie D's Soda Fountain, located in the back of Dellas 5&10, is a classic 1950's era soda fountain right down to the paper hats on the soda jerks. We offer 11 fixed stools at our counter and two booths to serve our customers. The fountain serves all of the classic american favorites along with a wide variety of classic dessert offerings. Meanwhile, Dellas 5&10 sells everything you would expect in a five and dime store including candy and gum, paper goods, daily newspapers, lottery tickets, health and beauty aids, party supplies, beach gear, clothing, souvenirs, toys and games, hardware items, cleaning supplies, cigarettes, greeting cards, etc. The Dellas family welcomes and encourages folks to browse and relax. Feel free to take a soda fountain menu home as a souvenir!
