Don't assume that these are merely places to pick up prescriptions. There's more to it than that. While you wait at either of these Chronicle reader faves, belly up to the counter and order up some fine local chow at Nau's soda fountains and People's lunch counters (three out of their four local stores have one). Old-timey? Sure, and so is the quality of service and friendliness you'd expect from hometown favorites like these.
