This is such a special place. If you like history, candy, and or on site caring and enthusiastic owners this you must stop here. If your timing is good you may catch them actively creating candy masterpieces. We never leave without red hots, but other kinds are excellent as well.

Plenty of chocolate and candies. Although we didn't have lunch here, the menu looked simple and people looked happy with their meals. We visited on a Wednesday afternoon and the store was busy, but plenty of store help available.

Owned by the same family all that time. one side of the store is a candy/ice cream shop with little tables you can sit at to enjoy your goodies. the other side is a place where they make candy, and they give demonstrations thruout the day, as...

Wonderful historic candy shop with a wide variety of treats available for purchase. Check out the museum of candy making tools, etc. Soda fountain menu with sandwiches makes this an option for a quick meal as well. Candies are famous. Especially the red hots! Offer frequent candy making demonstrations as well.

Stopped here with our grand kids. It was like a step back in time. Very friendly owners and staff. Interesting candy making demo - even for the 5 and 6 year olds. Definitely a must stop if in the area.

It was so neat watching them making the candy the old fashion way. We took some ribbon candy and hard candies home. It was also neat watching the girls make the pecan turtles too. Good place to take the whole family

We stopped here years ago while on vacation in Louisville and now every time we head south we have to stop and get some candy. We look forward to vacationing south just so we can stop. Doesn't take long for the tour and very tasty treats.

Walk thru the doors, look around, then close your eyes and just listen. It's the 1890s, or the 1910's, or the 1930's. Thistle place is what little locally owned places used to be. A place where food is fixed with love and pride. The candies are to die for, mostly made by hand with love. The lunch menu is simple... More

I came to visit friends and i was treated to this quaint gem of a store. I Had a fresh root beer float then was wowed by the famously addictive cinnamon candy. This is a must visit when visiting the louisville area.
