No Coke. No Pepsi. That could be the motto of POP! Social Market, just opened in Mastic Beach. The shop specializes in small-batch soda, selling bottles from all over the country and the globe: Guarana Antarctica from Brazil, Sanpellegrino pomegranate-orange from Italy, Kickapoo Fuzzy Navel from Georgia, Blumers cream soda from Wisconsin and dozens more.

Owner Elizabeth Mistretta and her son, Vincent Barbato, have taken the “pop” idea to extremes, offering popcorn, lollipops and pop music (via a collection of vinyl records and a turntable) to go along with the soda pop.

The shop is outfitted with a long bar (covered in old records) and a handful of glass-topped tables. To accompany your soda, there is homemade macaroni and cheese to eat, board games to play, music magazines to read and a Yamaha keyboard to play.

For, as they say, kids of all ages.

203 Mastic Beach Rd., Mastic Beach, 631-977-0132, popsocialmarket.com.
