Chapman Drug & Soda Fountain, Hapeville, Georgia

Updated: Apr 2

615 N Central Ave Atlanta, GA 30354 (404) 761-1136    



Chapman Drug is conveniently located in the middle of Hapeville. You can park on the street in front or find a spot trackside. The Chapman Drug & Soda Fountain opened in 1921. It remains a full service pharmacy today and they still make home pharmacy deliveries. In the 1920's & 30's the fountain had curb-side service, but unfortunately that ended in the 1930's. Lunch is the busiest time for the fountain. With Delta Airlines and Wachovia so close, their employees make up a large % of the fountains lunchtime crowd. Lime sours and milkshakes are the top sellers with Blue Bell ice cream in the shakes. My vanilla shake was very good. Truett Cathy (founder of Chick-fil-A) said that he comes to Chapman's to get a "real" milkshake. Not much of a lime sour person I opted for the fresh hand-squeezed lemonade. My large lemonade, made with two lemons, was outstanding! Since 1921 Coca-Cola has always been offered @ the fountain and Chapman's remains one of Coke's oldest customers. Experience and enjoy this living piece of American history.
