Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain has been a landmark in Pasadena since 1915 located on the historic Route 66. You can fill your prescription and get a sundae all in one trip. The sundae will ease the pain of having to pay full price for any medication not covered by your insurance. Okay, not really, but they do have some tasty treats here and that alone makes it better than CVS or Walgreens.
This is what the inside looks like, complete with a soda fountain bar with stools. There isn't a whole lot of seating in this place. What there is a lot of is little knick knacks for sell. There is everything from tea cups, to calendars, to bins of candy. The list goes on and on.
Hanging with the sisters. I don't remember how we found this place. I think we were driving by when Sister K pointed it out. We quickly pulled to the side of the street. Don't do that by the way, it isn't safe.
I think Sister K is having a Strawberry Classic Sundae.
Chili Cheese Fries. I couldn't have any of this obviously because it is covered in cheese but how can this not taste good. I mean seriously.
This is just a hot dog. But it was a good hot dog. I don't think I've ever met a hot dog I didn't like but don't quote me on that.
