A few friends and I ventured over to Victoria, on Vancouver Island, last weekend. We spent the entire day wandering around getting lost in the city and eating all sorts of delicious food. One of the places we dropped by was The Soda Shoppe.

The store was a nod to an old fashioned soda shop, complete with a high wooden bar and a large assortment of soda, floats, and ice cream sundaes. Even the staff wore crisp whites and bowties!

I ordered a classic Coca Cola ice cream float while my friends ordered more exotic fare – a mango-coconut float and a malt. Drinking my soda float while being surrounded by friends – I felt like I was sitting in an Archie comic book. The Soda Shoppe is now one of my favourite places in Victoria, and I will definitely be making a return visit soon.
