“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.
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.
Beautiful place, very nostalgic. It was very quiet on Easter Sunday.
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.
This was a beautiful ice cream store.
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.
Neat place! The kids really liked it. Very “old-timey” feel to the place, and a lot of antique soda fountains and fixtures. Staff was really friendly, particularly considering how busy the place was. Food tasted great, and the desserts did not disappoint! Fun stop!
Very unfriendly star. Kept telling us, "You can't do that" to all options. Icecream was ok
It’s beautiful! All the details accounted for and the staff will also share the history. We walked in as Union soldiers were wondering out to join a re-enactment. At first we thought they were actors part of the shop, but apparently Civil War re-enactments happen quite often in the area.
There was an event taking place the weekend we visited - would have liked to have lunch here, but unfortunately it was over an hour wait for a table. We were told we could order @ the counter "to go" but the food itself would take over 1/2 hour to be made - even waiting for a dish of ice cream 15 - 20 min. So unfortunately, we were only able to stop in & then depart for somewhere else. We were told these wait times were actually pretty average on weekends - so be aware & plan ahead for extra time. Wish we had!
