Manhattan Special Coffee Soda

Manhattan Special Coffee Soda

In this week's episode we try Manhattan Special, a coffee soda that is about as old as modern coffee, around since the late 1895 in the same location in Brooklyn, New York. It is a New York classic that we were excited to try!

Steph tells us the tale of the Manhattan Special company and with a company this old, it definitely has some history. Now run by the fourth generation of the same family that took over as teens, we think you'll enjoy this story of intrigue, murder, and success against the odds.
