1. The Pop Shop 729 Haddon Ave, Collingswood, NJ 08108

Modern meets retro at this New Jersey soda fountain that's decorated to look like it's been around for decades, even though it's only been open since the mid-aughts. The menu is straight up diner fare, featuring more than 30 kinds of next-level grilled cheese. Even though the ambience might feel a bit 1950s (ahem, the old-fashioned jukebox), new age things like gluten-free bread and tofu Buffalo wings will bring you back to the 21st century.
