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.

This place is an iconic candy store. Ice-cream is home made, service is excellent, and the fudge is to die for! Great for all ages! (make sure you go to the dentist after your visit)

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.
