This place has just about everything. It is very much a throwback to the old general store and has a great soda fountain. Stop in a browse. You will definitely find something you need or want.

All the way in the back of the store is an old fashioned working soda fountain. My friend and I ordered chocolate malts. Delicious. They have several options plus burgers. My first time ever trying out the soda fountain and I live not far from Cape May and visit all the time.

we stumbled upon della's one morning when we were desperate for food and coffee and many of the stores were still closed. My mother loved it because it reminded her of the old 5 & 10's of her youth. The lady behind the counter was so wonderful. She was friendly and made us a great breakfast. They had some really... More

It's an old fashioned 5 & 10, sure. But the real gem is the soda fountain in the back of the store! With cool menu postings on the back wall, you can get PB&J or Lacas coffee (flavored if you wish) - from the ridiculous to the sublime.

Cute store on the Mall. They have just about everything I've ever needed here. And they have a cute luncheonette in the back, then a real estate office.

I was looking forward to bringing our family here for a meal or snack and we did so the day we browsed and shopped on the Washington Mall. The store had a cute vintage feel, but shelves and racks kind of lined up near the wall had only pricey souvenir stuff. Nothing we were interested in comparatively. The soda fountain/bar... More

This place takes you back in time when life was slower and more relaxed. Great store and in the back is a old time soda fountain bar for some great deals on ice cream, milk shakes, burgers, all day breakfast, and all at below average prices! A must visit place.

Thank heavens for this handy five and dime, which has been at this location for ages. Although it was renovated a few short years ago, it has a lingering smell of hot dogs that have been on the grill far too long. This odiferous aroma definitely detracts from what could be a nostalgic shopping experience.

If you want to turn back the time to the late 50's and early 60's then go to this 5 & 10 store. Reminds me of the Woolworth stores back when. A real NY city style egg cream! Old fountain style area in the back. Terrific!

Description
Margie D's Soda Fountain, located in the back of Dellas 5&10, is a classic 1950's era soda fountain right down to the paper hats on the soda jerks. We offer 11 fixed stools at our counter and two booths to serve our customers. The fountain serves all of the classic american favorites along with a wide variety of classic dessert offerings. Meanwhile, Dellas 5&10 sells everything you would expect in a five and dime store including candy and gum, paper goods, daily newspapers, lottery tickets, health and beauty aids, party supplies, beach gear, clothing, souvenirs, toys and games, hardware items, cleaning supplies, cigarettes, greeting cards, etc. The Dellas family welcomes and encourages folks to browse and relax.
