We recently found ourselves in the charming (and aptly named) port town of… Port Townsend. The naming folks got clever with that one, huh? The town is overflowing with local boutiques that feature everything from cupcakes to ukeleles. While we were only to spend a few hours wandering through town, we came across one particular shop that took us back in time.
Meet Nifty Fifties, an old fashioned soda fountain. Now, when I think “soda fountain” I think of the machines that fill my Subway cup up with lemonade. That’s not the case with Nifty Fifties. This retro spot features milk shakes, malts, ice cream floats, a variety of sodas… and that’s just the drink menu. If you’re hankering for something to eat, try a Fifty’s Frank or a Nifty’s Burger- both are delicious.
If you ever find yourself in the quaint town of Port Townsend, be sure to stop in to Nifty Fifties. Put some quarters in the juke box to have a bonafide good time!
