Pop's Ice Cream & Soda Bar. 1916 Memorial Avenue. Roanoke. 24015
I've been showing you around the Grandin Village area of Roanoke this past week. I showed you the Grandin Theatre HERE and the Morris Apartments and a mural HERE. This is Pop's and it is right around the corner from the theatre and the apartments. I admit that we've never stopped in there, nor did we this time since we were still full from lunch but it is a place I had heard about and need to get back to, soon! So you know me, I tried to find info on this great old building and found that it was once the Raleigh Court Library from the 1920's to the 1970's. You can read more about that HERE. I also discovered that not only ice cream, they have some pretty amazing grilled cheese sandwiches, which I found out when I came across a story in Esquire Mag, which you can read HERE...I didn't notice Pop's having an actual website but they do have a Facebook page HERE if you want to check them out!
