St. Francis Soda Fountain

St.Francis Soda Fountain, Canon Digital Rebel

The St. Francis Soda Fountain {on the corner of 24th St. and York} has been around since 1918. Here you can find burgers, sandwiches and other great food, but their specialties are ice cream and malted milkshakes. I hear that they also make homemade root beer, old fashioned egg creams, and their own hot fudge and marshmallows.

The inside looks like it hasn’t changed in all these years, complete with booths and a candy counter. You will feel transported to another time…

Hi, I’m Andrea

On this blog you’ll be learning with me how to use our voices, share our creative superpowers and live life in full color.

As an artist, photographer, life coach + mentor, I’m redefining what it means to be a SUPERHERO — ‘cause in my world, it’s got nothing to do with capes, spandex or sidekicks and everything to do with tenderness, intuition & baby steps of bravery.

    You have been a blogging madwoman. I had to catch up on all the reading. Good for you. These are really inspirational posts. I love the mix of shiny diners, pirate’s booty and eyeballs too. Thanks..

    I love little diners/soda fountains like this one. Sadly, there are so few of them left.
    Thanks for showing us around your neighborhood, Andrea. I look forward to visiting SF some day … especially the pirate store!

    Looks like a wonderful place. I was just telling my 11 year old today about the candy counter in the variety store that used to be here in our town.
