The folks who own the Elliston Place Soda Shop and their landlord have reached a lease deal to keep the historic soda shop afloat for another five years.

Earlier this week, we reported that the restaurant, which has been operating on Elliston at least since 1939, was planning to close after lunch this Saturday. Today the parties announced an agreement to extend the lease, Bites' colleagues at The City Paper report. Veteran real estate investor Jim Crossman is the shop's landlord.

The soda shop is known not just for its ice cream, but also inexpensive breakfast and meat-and-three lunch. Its friendly waitresses and old-school vibe appeal to tourists and locals alike.
