We've been visiting Bruce's for years, there are candy shops all up and down our coastline but there's only one Bruce's! Huge selection of candy and lots of interesting odds and ends in the shop as well. I think if I tried to pass this place by my family would throw me out of the car :)

Yes it's a candy shop. But so much more. Never mind the fact it has amazing candy in so many assortments. And of course the salt water taffy. But I'm recommending this place for the fun! Went in with my girlfriend and she said she was watching me act like a child. Now that's not meant as a bad thing.... More

My family and I have traveled to Cannon Beach for 26 years. My children are grown but this is always there first stop in town. Always fun treasures to find and great candy. The kids always take home some salt water taffy. Turtles and Sea Form are my favorite.

A great little candy shop for big and little kids but watch the food labels - sorbitol and vanillan abound! Vanillan - a waste product from pulp and paper mills cannot be absorbed into our bodies - and sorbitol - well perhaps not the healthiest thing to feed our kids! Having said that - watching the salt water taffy being... More

Had such fun in July 2013 taking my own child to a favorite place from my own childhood. Bruce's never fails to bug out kids' eyes & it's really fun to see your own kids savor it all, just like you did when you could barely see over the counter.

Everywhere you go along the Oregon coast there are candystores. Bruce's is a standout among them. The kids were mesmorized by the taffy being made and everyone gets one piece free. Fun. Way too much candy gets bought and hoarded and traded and ate. Oh well, that's what summer vacation is all about.

It's hard to walk out of here without buying something. Lots of cool candy to choose from. Not a huge fan of taffy, but they have a lot of that too. Each of us walked out with our own score, fun stuff.

If they had not expanded, my kids would have bought the entire inventory. Classic place in Cannon Beach and not to be missed.

You must go here and get the salt water taffy. Great souvenier and fun atmosphere. It is made right in the shop. Love that.
