“One Unforgettable Location Since 1900”

Step inside Zaharakos (Zuh-HARE-uh-koes) to find an ice cream parlor of stained glass, carved oak, and marble. Look for the Tiffany-style lamp and the double soda fountains.

Listen to the rich, full sound of the Welte orchestrion. Learn about soda fountains and mechanical music when you visit the museum.

When it comes to iconic soda shops, Zaharakos is in a league all its own. The classic counter... This place makes you feel like you're back in time. This is a must-try in Columbus.

My son and I enjoyed our tasty, well portioned, mid cost lunches while listening to beautiful music. Ordering from the ice cream parlor is a must! It is gorgeous! And if that wasn't enough, there's also a small museum and gift shop/candy store, too! Tip: Prepare for street parking.

The ice cream, soda, and atmosphere are all excellent. You should absolutely stop here. However, the food is sub par, so stick to dessert. Enjoy!

Very cute, loved the vintage charm. Seating at the counter is first come first served, but you'll need to wait to get a table. the ice cream is delicious of course, and it's even made on site! We would definitely make it a stop again if we were back in Columbus.

I am so glad we stopped here. The food and the shakes were awesome. We had our dog with us and there were a few tables outside to accommodate us. Our waitress even stayed outside with our dog so we could all go inside and get a family picture! I wish we had more time in this town. There was a neat little Children's Museum that we would have loved to stop in. There was a nice indoor mall play area across the street for the kids to run off some energy while waiting on our food. This was a very nice town. It felt very welcoming and if I was looking for somewhere to live I would consider this place.

This place is amazing!! So much history n friendly staff. One of the best floats I've ever had, all their ice cream is made down below in the basement (delicious). Candy store with tons of little gifts n historical soda machines, music organs/players. Take the time to check out the memorial down the street, truly amazing. Will be back soon.

Yes yes yes!! If we pass through Columbus during the day we have to stop here. The sodas, ice cream and light fare are very pleasing. The decor is always fun to look at!
