Driving around the back of the Edward’s Movie Theater one evening my boyfriend and I spotted this little shack. Pick Me Up! I thought it might be a coffee place, so I knew I had to come back and check it out. Alas, it wasn’t a coffee hut! It was something I have actually never been to before. A specialty soda and cookie joint!

My favorite part about Pick Me Up was that it was a unique experience. I have never been to a little soda and cookie shack before! They have a lot of fun flavors to try. I got the Swank (coconut, pineapple, peach!) which I would completely refer, because it is delish!! Added benefit it reminds me of Hillary Swank. Which in turn reminds me of Million Dollar Baby. So sad, but SO GOOD. None of that has anything to do with the beverage… Also, the sugar cookies are the bomb digs. I crave them now all too often.
Another great part was that the staff in there was fantastic! They were fun, sweet, and helpful!
Atmosphere wasn’t really something I could rate here, but being able to walk up grab soda and then go to the park afterwards was fun. This little gem is kind of hidden too. So, go find it! It’s almost like an adventure with the reward being sweet deliciousness at the end.
