Nearly 100 Years Old, This New York Soda Fountain Is A Step Back In Time

A staple of Manhattan’s Upper East Side, Lexington Candy Shop serves up a healthy dose of nostalgia to diners who venture back in time for a relaxing breakfast or lunch. Since 1925, the restaurant has been passed down through three generations, all while maintaining the classic environment and great food that make it a local favorite to this day. Lexington Candy Shop is also offering outdoor seating during the pandemic.

Lexington Candy Shop is located at the corner of 83rd St and Lexington Ave. It is open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. It has a classic (and very expansive) menu, prime location, and infectious energy. Add blueberry pancakes to that list, and it’s a home run.
