Watson Soda Fountain Café

Top choice diner in Old Towne Orange

Established 1899, this former drugstore was recently refurbished to a period design (check out the old safe, apothecary cabinets and telephone switchboard). It offers old-fashioned soda-fountain treats such as malts, milkshakes and sundaes, as well as burgers, fries, fried pickle chips and breakfast all day.

Bonus: beer and wine list and very tall cakes in the adjacent Rockwell Bakery.
