Elliston's Peach Milkshake

As Nashville’s oldest continuously operating restaurant in its original location, Elliston Place Soda Shop holds a special place in the local restaurant community. The street was named for the Elliston family who originally owned most of the property along the present day Elliston Place corridor. It has been a prime location for shops since the early 1900s. The building at 2111 Elliston Place that houses the Soda Shop was originally opened as a grocery. The grocery eventually became a pharmacy in the 1920s. In 1939 Lynn Chandler redesigned part of the pharmacy to open the Soda Shop. Our drug store neighbor remained until 1965. This peach milkshake with macerated peaches is only available during peach season and is not on the menu. The macerated peaches are great over cheesecake and pound cake too.
