Where can I still get a Lime Rickey, Vanilla Coke and great food? Hinkles Pharmacy in Columbia

"Hinkles Pharmacy"

Third and Locust Street
Columbia PA

I know what you are thinking...what does a pharmacy have to do with food?  A whole bunch!

Hidden gems dotted in small towns is one of my favorite discoveries.

When I travel I always ask the locals where they eat because you usually can't go wrong.

The history of Hinkles goes back to 1893 and that alone tells you they are doing something right.

At Hinkles you can still sit at the counter and order a lime rickey, vanilla or cherry coke.
Their food is excellent and very reasonably priced.
Susquehanna Salad is one of my favorites.  Choose from tuna, chicken or egg salad, on top of a bed of lettuce, red beets and a red beet egg sliced to the side.  I love it.

Hinkle's is the only place I know you can order a red beet egg sandwich with lettuce and mayo.  Yum....

Breakfast is tops, especially the strawberry crepes.
For those that are gluten free they have offerings for you also.

A sweet little gift shop awaits you and changes with the seasons.  Always something to catch your eye.

Best of all when you walk in or out of Hinkle's you get a view of the Susquehanna River.

Check out our blog on Burning Bridge Antique Center located across from Hinkles.  It is a gem.
