I was very impressed by the 4th Street Fountain in Elsberry.
It is a carefully restored soda fountain on Broadway - Broadway is perpendicular to Missouri Route 79 along the Mississippi. The soda fountain faces a park. The interior is cheerful. They serve ice cream from Serendipity in Webster Groves.
But the most impressive thing about the 4th Street Fountain is that they serve egg cremes. As a transplanted New Yorker, I was thrilled. I even forgave them the fact that they use a recipe from New Jersey...
