* A milk bar appears briefly in David S. Garnet's "The Only One", which starts off as {{Steampunk}} and then, every time the protagonist travels back in time to change his past, the setting moves ''forward'' in time. So the tearoom where he first met his wife has become a milk bar. (It goes on to be a coffee shop, a pub, and eventually some kind of {{Cyberpunk}} drug den.)

* Pop Tate's Choclit Shoppe in ''Franchise/{{Archie|Comics}}.''. While small diners do of course still exist, what really makes the place TheArtifact is Pop's fashion sense, since he looks like he just stepped through a time portal from 1949. But Riverdale just wouldn't be Riverdale without it or without him.

* The RetroUniverse of Fawcett City in Creator/DCComics' ''Power of Comicbook/{{Shazam}}'' includeed a malt shop (possibly the same one from Captain Marvel's initial ''Whiz Comics'' appearances). It even played a plot point in the ''Comicbook/BlackAdam'' miniseries.

* One scene in ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' takes place in a cow-themed malt shop where its proprietor, Milky Marvin, is willing to cater to anyone's taste in milkshakes.



* ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' episode "Walking Distance" features a malt shop when a man returns to the town he grew up in to see that nothing has changed. He first realizes something strange is going on when the malt shop is still selling milk shakes for a dime, and comes to realize that he's somehow traveled back in time.

* Even the United Kingdom gets in on the act with the Ed's Easy Diner chain, which seems to toe the line between being a nostalgia cafe based on a malt shop, and being an affectionate parody of one. It has the jukeboxes, art-deco motif and malt shakes, but they also have a menu of practically nothing but variations on hotdogs, chilli and burgers, signs on the walls such as 'No dancing in the aisles', and the shakes themselves are enormous.

* In the reboot ''Comicbook/LegionOfSuperheroes'' SomethingCompletelyDifferent issue where the time-lost Legionnaires are relocated to a small town in the fifties, with memories to match, Cosmic Boy's dad runs the malt shop. A more "spacey" malt shop called "Brande's" also appears at the end of the Universo storyline, as Universo's mental prison. Both of these are probably nods to the reboot's FanNickname of "The ''Archie'' Legion".

* [[AsianStoreOwner Akbar's]] Malt Shop in ''Webcomic/TheInexplicableAdventuresOfBob''. Akbar ''WebAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirlsSummertimeShorts'': The "Coinky-Dink World" music video shows that Pinkie Pie's part-time job is at such a place. It has a jukebox, records hanging from the walls, serves hamburgers and milkshakes, and the waitresses have rollerskates. It seems very popular among modern-day teens, but it is to be one of the saner people in the town.noted that there are also a few middle-aged couples around.

* The ''Franchise/ScoobyDoo'' gang visited these quite a bit in parts of the plot that would normally have taken them to a bar. Also, the Scooby gang would often start an episode in a malt shop (in the 1969�80 series), when they weren't on a beach.
