Shows and movies like Grease and Happy Days helped build up a popular image of the vintage soda stand and classic diner hangout that still endures today. When it’s done right, a 50’s diner has great food, lavish sodas and milkshakes in tall frosted glasses, all wrapped up in a warm, inviting atmosphere.
The Always Refreshing Soda Shop takes its cue from this 50’s aesthetic. Located within Falls Avenue Resort, the retro diner is designed to evoke the soda fountains and drug stores of the era.
The recipes are a mix of the new and old, providing a variety of floats and shakes topped with milk ice cream stacks, and the food menu is classic retro with popular diner fare like hot dogs. There’s a wide range of sodas available with various flavour shots – if you can’t decide, a ‘Coke platter’ is available to receive samples of special soda flavours. There’s even the opportunity to dictate your own concoction for a unique soda flavour if you’re feeling daring and creative.
The centrepiece of the Always Refreshing aesthetic is the abundance of Coca-Cola memorabilia decorating the soda shop. Between the items on display and the range of sodas, this is definitely a haven for Coke lovers and avid collectors. There’s always an abundance of licensed merchandise for sale as well.
The soda shop keeps longer hours than the old-school diner – staying open until 10 pm on weekend evenings makes it a great sport to get a tall soda on a hot night.
If you’re a fan of vintage Coca-Cola memorabilia, 50s retro design or classic milkshakes and sodas, this diner is a great spot to hang out and relax with friends or family, close to the other shops and outlets of the Fallsview complex. It ticks all the boxes of a great 50s diner.
