Galco's Soda Pop Stop

Map & Directions 5702 York Blvd.
Highland Park, CA 90042


LA Weekly's Description

One trip to Galco’s soda shop and you’ll never look at – or taste – soda the same way. A family-owned business for more than a hundred years, the Highland Park institution now sells 450-plus types of beer, sparkling wines and specialty sodas, from domestic to international to retro, all made with real sugar and not corn syrup. Aisles and aisles of gleaming and brightly-colored colas, cream sodas, root beers, sarsaparillas and lemonades with odd flavors (Cucumber? Lavender flowers?) and even odder names (Doggie Style? Raging Bitch?) compete for attention, waiting to be gulped down. Can’t find the drink of your youth? Ask owner John F. Nese – he’s super friendly, and he’s always around, stocking shelves. And as this is a converted market, Galco’s also has a deli in the back that sells sub sandwiches starting at only $4.50. If you need more sugar, round out the vintage experience with old-school candy like candy cigarettes and Oh Henry! chocolate bars.

    You will find the most fun and interesting soda's there. And the owner can tell you every ingredient, where it was made, etc. He is like a soda sommelier. -Danielle Keene, Top Chef Just Desserts
