Visit the site where Caleb Bradham first invented one of America's favorite sweet carbonated drinks at Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola. Though it was a pharmacy when Bradham first experimented with the soda in the 1890s, the site today houses a gift shop and soda bar. Here you can learn more about the history of Pepsi's inventor and the drink's early days. You'll also have the opportunity to browse through Pepsi memorabilia. Of course, no visit would be complete without ordering a Pepsi float from the bar amid the historic surroundings. Use our New Bern planner to add Birthplace of Pepsi-Cola and other attractions to your New Bern vacation plans.

With the influence Soft Drinks have had on America and the World this is a great stop. And its not over the top like the rival brand.
Very nostalgic. We stumbled upon it by accident! Small but quaint, but if you’re a Pepsi or Mt. Dew lover, kinda cool to say you’ve been there once. I have some family members who are “Dew” fans so it was a great opportunity to grab them some souvenirs.
