Before leaving for Austin, my family and I spent some time in Pasadena. We went down to South Pas and had lunch at the Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain. I’ve driven by this place tons of times, always admiring their old school neon sign, but I’d never been inside! It’s a cute little gift shop with breakfast, lunch, and plenty of ice cream.
They serve lots of tater tots, which I loved, crispy bacon, and tasty coffee. They even have a tater tot burger! After lunch (of course, I had breakfast for lunch), I had a mega scoop of green tea ice cream. My brother had a strawberry cheesecake smoothie made with an entire pint of ice cream. The food was wonderful, but what would you expect? Everything is fried and buttered, so of course it’s good 🙂
