It’s easy to like Marv’s Classic Soda Shop, as the charming, small town feel of Black Diamond is the perfect setting for this classic diner. Set up like an old-fashioned candy store, patrons can sit at the counter and chat up the proprietors while sipping a malt, or hang in a booth with friends and take in the sites, sounds, smells and feel of the 50s. Be sure to take the time to enjoy the period memorabilia on hand, some of which is for purchase, some just for ogling.
Marv’s offers a selection of classic meals just like you would have found back in the 50s. You might want to think about trying out their Elvis Burger, topped with peanut butter and bananas just the way The King liked them and hand made with Grade A Alberta Beef and Marv’s secret seasoning spice. Or, maybe the Judy Jetson is more your style. The sandwich comes with two strips of chicken on a bun with lettuce, tomato and mayo. Meals are value priced.
You can have your ice cream served in a variety of forms. Try out their classic regular shake or simply get it in a bowl with toppings, plus whipped cream and a cherry. There are also hot fudge sundaes and, of course, their famed Ice Cream Sodas with dozens of flavours available.
