A welcome addition to Mission Street, The Fizzary has everyone flabbergasted as they walk in the door. The vast collection of vintage and hard-to-find soda pop that lines the walls — over 700 types — is incredibly impressive. And, smack in the middle of everything is a carousel of old-fashioned, bite-sized antique candy and salt-water taffy. There are even candy-flavored sodas that taste of Atomic Fireballs and cherry goodness. Owner Aaron Olson tries to stay away from anything mainstream to create an atmosphere reminiscent of the past and the soda scene is close to his heart as one of the brewers behind Taylor’s Tonics is made here in S.F. Keep your eyes peeled for a fountain in the coming months!
What to get: Who are we kidding — fill up on liquid candy here. It's all about the soda pop!
