“A must-do if you are in Columbus, Indiana (LOL)”

Zaharakos Ice Cream Parlor and Museum
Ranked #1 of 36 things to do in Columbus

Reviewed 28 June 2018

Columbus is a sort of oddly pretentious little city in Indiana. We visited last summer because we have family in Indiana. If you're ever in Columbus, check out Zaharakos. I don't think there's many ice cream parlors like this still around.

This a very special place. It was restored a few years ago and it is wonderful. The old fashion ice cream fountain brings back memories and you must have a green river. If you are even around Columbus this is something you won't want to miss

We took our grand daughters for some ice cream and this is the best place in Columbus Indiana. They are two and four years old and had a great time. The looked at everything for their first time visit. We will be back for sure. Might become our tradition.

This is a museum more than anything - the antiques and the way they restored it is breathtaking. The ice cream? hands down some of the most creamy I've had - try the green river soda it's their own concoction! Don't miss the candy store on the other side behind the soda fountain.

Online photos don't do this place justice. What a step back in time, and the museum of old soda fountain dispensers is amazing. We ordered old-fashioned cheeseburgers, followed by hot fudge sundaes. Yum!
