Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionery – Old Fashion Sundaes
So I heard about this classic 1950’s ice-cream place called Glenburn Soda Fountain & Confectionary for a very long time from EVERYONE I knew but I live so far from this place it was hard to make the trek.
Finally one day my friends and I were around the area so we finally got a chance to go! We got here at about 9pm and the place was PACKED. So packed we had to squeeze and fight to get a table.
This family owned business focuses on back to basics good ol’ sundaes, milkshakes, candies, floats, and ice-cream. You won’t find any earl grey, balsamic blueberry business here. Just the traditional vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, peanut butter, etc flavours exist here.
The entire room of this eatery probably has less than 20 seats so make sure you get here early! They craft up their delicious creations behind a long counter so if you like watching people make food (like me!! I’m a sucker for open kitchen concepts), you’ll love sitting at the counter while you eat!
I shared the Sweet & Salty Pretzel Sundae ($8) with Little Sis because we didn’t think we could finish one by ourselves. We were right. The sundae is hugeee!!!
Even though I dislike very sugary sweets, I found this sundae relatively easy to consume. The salt on the pretzels and throughout the sundae perfectly balanced the caramel so you never just get stuck with sweet on sweet on sweet flavours. Even though I want to try different things on the menu, I might just stick with this one again on my next visit.
Speaking about sweet on sweet on sweet. That pretty much sums up this Brownie Sundae ($9). They use “The Last Crumb” ‘s browned butter brownie and top it with their traditional vanilla ice-cream, topped with whipped cream, nuts, and maraschino cherry. While I love a good ol’ brownie sundae, I think the pretzel sundae was better just because of the perfect balance of sweet and salty.
