This place will surprise you, or anyone you are with. Even pulling up to the De Soto Pharmacy, as you can see in the photos below, feels like a flashback to 1950 in the San Fernando Valley, specifically Canoga Park in the Winnetka neighborhood.
In comes ice cream, or more specifically, in comes chocolate dipped iced mugs with a chocolate milkshake within. Banana splits, root beer floats, and a big variety of ice cream.Which brings us to why this place is great, “The Valley” always exceeds 110 degrees in the summer, theres a lot of traffic to add to that heat, all trapped between a set of mountains, relief is far and few between.
We walked in and provided that we usually carry camera’s around us, we’re target for conversations. Immediately we began speaking with Diane who had been coming here for 23 years, 21 years with her son. According to Diane, the sandwiches are excellent but you should have a bowl of ice cream first before eating your sandwich We haven’t taken her suggestion yet.
