I have a tradition when I stay at the Dolphin or the Swan. First thing I do is check in – the next thing I do is head to The Fountain and order a grilled chicken sandwich. This has been going on for years. I love this little restaurant. Years ago, the wait staff would sing and dance 50s style. They don’t anymore, but I am ok with that. As long as they keep serving up the amazing milk shakes, ice cream sundaes, and tradition 1950s fountain shop food – I am all good with it.
What’s so special about a grilled chicken? For me it’s the perfect food after a morning of travel and an afternoon and evening of hitting the parks before my room is ready. It’s not too heavy after all the travel and it’s just the right energy boost to kick off a second wind. Parks, here I come.
If grilled chicken isn’t your thing, no worries. The Fountain has a great assortment of soups and salads, burgers, specialty sandwiches and “fountain specialties” such as their Brownie Blast Sundae, Caramel Apple Sundae, Chocolate Raspberry Torte Shake, Coco Loco Shake - Chocolate & caramel cappuccino ice creams blended together, topped with whipped cream, malted milk balls & drizzled with chocolate & caramel sauces, Nutty-Chocolate-Covered-Banana-Shake and a wide variety of toppings, ice cream flavors, cake and cone types to make your own sundae, cone, float or shake.
Now when my best friend goes without me, she sends a picture of my old standby lunch – now that’s a true friend!
