Where to get EGG CREAM?

I know Langer's offers Egg Cream but I've never had it there. What kind of syrup and seltzer does Langer's use for their Egg Cream? Is it any good?

Who else offers this treat?

  1. I don't know about the seltzer they use, but most of the delis that do a good egg cream use the U-Bet syrup. They're pretty easy to make. I hate Jerry's Delis in general, but they do a decent egg cream. The same is true about Weiler's Family Deli in Northridge, and their egg cream (at least the one I got for takeout) comes in a giant glass.

    Frankly, an egg cream is pretty easy to make. Just mix chocolate syrup with a little milk, and add seltzer.

    1. Fair Oaks Pharmacy & Soda Fountain (in S. Pasadena, Fair Oaks & Mission I believe) also offers egg cream -- though I usually go there for rickeys or sundaes.

        Thanks for the tip.

        Fosselman's used to make an Egg Cream as a special order, but alas no more ...

        1. i like vainlla egg creams and nobody can top canter's for that. i've been to a few other places, but nobody else's tastes creamy enough for my tastes. i think i prefer vanilla egg creams on the sweet side.

          1. Billy's Deli in Glendale does great egg creams, with the Fox's U-Bet.
