Step back in time and visit Union Station's original Soda Fountain! Enjoy an old fashioned phosphate made with your favorite flavoring and soda water straight from the fountain dispenser. Add some hand-scooped ice cream and it becomes a luscious ice cream soda. Delicious malts, milk shakes and sundaes are also favorites.

The Soda Fountain also serves lunch! Stop by for a hearty all-beef hotdog or a freshly-prepared sandwich.
