- In Short
The Berley family has a long history in the antique trade. So when brother Eric decided to retool a former bakeshop of questionable taste into a wondrous and authentic turn-of-the-century style soda fountain, no painstaking detail was spared. Today, hand-made Franklin Ice Cream is carefully dispensed over Tennessee pink marble counters with antique wooden cabinetry lining the walls and tin ceilings completing the scene overhead. Vintage signs signal classic sundaes, splits, soda fountains favorites, fruit pies and other baked goods. Additional fare is found in homespun fudge, old-school chewing gum and even America's first soft drink--Moxie cola.
