“soda fountain since 1915”

Originally named the South Pasadena Pharmacy when it opened its doors in 1915, this South Pasadena landmark was known as the Raymond Pharmacy throughout the 1920s and ‘30s and was a popular rest stop on the westernmost end of Route 66. Today’s Fair Oaks Pharmacy & Soda Fountain was restored in the early 1990s to its original turn-of-the-century splendor. Authentic tin ceilings and honeycomb tile floors, and a complete set of antique pharmacy fixtures and an original soda fountain all the way from Joplin, Missouri, to round out the store’s vintage interior décor. Coincidentally the heirloom fixtures were purchased from the Me Gee pharmacy located in Joplin Missouri on Route 66!

A California institution since 1915, the Fair Oaks Pharmacy was a popular stop on Route 66, and thanks to its restoration in the 1990s, it is again. It functions as a real pharmacy and store, so if you need a prescription filled before heading out on the road, take advantage. The real draw, however, is the soda fountain. At Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Shop you can order old-fashioned phosphate, lime rickey, or egg cream and let a real soda jerk give you a truly authentic experience. The lunch menu also features hot dogs, hamburgers, sandwiches, and salads.
