Tasty orange pineapple ice cream, not sherbet! Priced just right for the whole family to enjoy. Went back a second time for fun candy to give our sons for Christmas. Friendly staff and outdoor seating.

I think our group would have gone here every night for dessert if we weren't so full from our dinners out! It's a small shop, but the staff is friendly and high-energy, and there are so many great candies and treats and ice cream flavors...More

I love the Candy Kitchen, but even more so since my grandson started working there. We have always loved their homemade ice cream and all of the variety of candy. We visit everytime we are in the area

We enjoy this candy store very much. They have all of you nostalgic candy from your childhood. The service is always upbeat and positive no matter how busy it gets. The seating out front is a nice touch. Great homemade ice cream and fudge.

We stopped by after lunch for Italian Ice, the man working 10/6 was so nice. We loved looking at the retro candy, games and the Nehi soda.

Took the kids here, they & the wife all loved it, what a blast from the past with all the candy from the 60's thru today. Ice cream was truly exceptional! Go to this place, you will love it.

We went to candy kitchens and it was not very good. We had the ice cream chocolate fudge there and it was sweet but like blehhh kinda sweet. We would prefer going to McDonald because they have much better mc flurrys.

I don't know, but the shop is small, There were 7 people in our party plus maybe 4 other people in the shop, and we were very crowded. They did have picnic tables to sit at outside to eat.
