“a spoonful of sugar”

Bauder Pharmacy is one of the most storied pharmacies in all of Iowa. Bauders is home to the first registered lady pharmacist of the state. Carolyn Bauder started the pharmacy in 1916. She started by selling prescriptions and home necessities (needles, thread, and other household items).The pharmacy was originally located at 18th and Crocker, in 1925 Bauders moved to its present and permanent location 38th and Ingersoll Ave. Carolyn Bauder took in a partner (Charles Graziano) in 1947. Charles and his wife Corrine purchased the other half in 1963. Charles worked daily until his passing in 1996. The store is currently operated by Corrine and their children Kim and Mark. The trademark of Bauders is its dedication to tradition. Bauder's charm comes from its nostalgic soda fountain. It features a mint condition running Coke machine. All malts and drinks (green rivers, cherry cokes, and others) are all served in old fashion soda glasses. The fountain has a menu of famous sandwiches and drinks. Bauder's egg salad sandwich was written up in Bon Appetit Magazine, the store has been written up numerous times in various publications. Bauder's ice cream is showcased at the Iowa State Fair. We have participated in the Iowa State Fair since 1986. The featured item available only at the fair is a "Bauder peppermint bar". This treat has an Oreo crust, 2 inches of ice cream, topped by hot fudge and cut into ice cream sandwiches. This is the premier item of the fair noted by their coverage in Gourmet magazine twice, as the food you must try at the Iowa State Fair. The tradition of how Bauders has succeeded is by doing things the old way. We greet our patrons by their name and still answer all phone calls personally (no answering machine). We even offer free delivery-Bauders is still here because we have a superior product and we're accessible to our customers. All of this can be noted by our loyal following for almost 100 years!!!! The pride and notoriety of Bauders is its famous homemade ice cream, made right at 3802 Ingersoll Avenue. People Magazine voted Bauder's Fresh Strawberry one of the best in the country in 1984. The ice cream has also been written up in three different issues of Gourmet Magazine, along with several different national and local publications.
