This independently-owned and locally-operated full service pharmacy and soda fountain in the heart of downtown Knoxville is located in the historically rich building known as "The Phoenix." Be sure to read all about the building's history here.

That’s why everything from our ice cream to our marshmallow fluff is hand-made from the freshest possible ingredients by people who care about providing the best possible experience for each guest every time."
