We stopped in the sweet shop for treats during our vacation with our kids and grandkids. I had a root beer float that tasted so good. I'm pretty sure they made the root beer themselves. It had a spicy touch to it. The malts and shakes were amazing. We left with some dark chocolate malt balls........CRAZY GOOD! Go there! The... More

I'm a local so could go everyday but have to be strong not to. The ice cream and candy are delicious. It is great on holidays and it makes wonderful candies for gifts too.

This place has just a wonderful staff to show you their myriad of fantastic ice cream flavors!!! You will love this place, since it reminds you of the corner ice cream parlor with your favorite flavors, to take you back to your childhood!

Ice cream, chocolate, candy and friendly proprietors made our visit very tasty. All their chocolates are well done and offered in both milk & dark varieties. I just wish we lived closer so we could enjoy this shop more often. I am jealous of the locals.

This isn't the only old-fashioned ice cream shop in town, but it is the best! The staff is always friendly and willing to wait while we try to decide on flavors. They have quite a variety from good ol' standbys to new combinations my daughter is always eager to try.

I loved The Sweet Shop! The ice cream was excellent! The service was great! I loved the atmosphere of the shop too! We had to stop multiple times on our visit because it was so good. We also bought chocolates that were excellent too!

Our family LOVES The Sweet Shop. My mother-in-law grew up going to The Sweet Shop as a child, my husband grew up going with his grandma, and now we continue on the tradition by taking our children, nieces, and nephews every time we're in town. Our favorites are the raspberry creams, peanut butter meltaways, milk chocolate covered caramels, and cherry... More

This is your old fashioned candy shop, where you can still find ribbon candy and angel food/divinity, a place to slow down and enjoy a treat or to send a taste of home to relatives far away.
