Glenburn Soda Fountain and Confectionery
I’ve heard good things about Glenburn. This family owned and operated soda fountain has taken the food world by a storm with their old-school ice cream recipes and home-made sodas.
The decor is retro. Walking thru the door is like stepping back into a simpler time. One of the fixtures of the shop is a 1931 Walrus soda fountain, which is used to make any soda combination imaginable. Their choice of syrups is extensive: Anything from banana, lavender, grape, coffee, strawberry, ginger, cherry,blueberry, vanilla, lime, green apple, sarsaparilla and many more.
Their sodas are refreshing, light and not at all syrupy. They’re served with old school paper straws. For only $3, this is the perfect summer treat.
Looking for something more substantial, or sharing with someone? Who about one of their massive ice cream creations? Their ice cream is from Birchwood Dairy in Abbotsford. Creamy and delicious, you can have your ice cream with all sorts of old fashioned toppings such as malt balls.
Their menu has seasonal offerings such as the PB supreme (Chocolate and vanilla ice cream topped with peanut butter and hot fudge sauces) and the Toonerville Treat (maple walnut, caramel pecan fudge and vanilla ice cream). All of them tempting and delicious choices.
I loved coming here. The hype is well deserved. This is truly a must-have experience.
