Search out the Sweet Shop and ponder why there is not a line out the door waiting to buy candy and ice cream

Maybe we should not spread the word about the Sweet Shop but if we perhaps do not give directions only the really deserving travelers will find this lost in time treasure. Nothing fake here. House made confections and real Wisconsin ladies behind the display cases. This is not Godiva chocolate but what Godiva could only wish to be if someone... More

The Sweet Shop is a gem in LaCrosse WI. If you are in LaCrosse and have a little free time be sure to stop in for excellent old time ice cream and home made chocolates and candy shop. You can visit one-on-one with the owner and we got a tour of the baking and chocolate and candy making rooms. We... More

They have great ice cream to purchase and real soda. Then after we have our ice cream treats, we always buy some homemade candies or candies when I was a kid. It's so great that there are still places like this around the area. It's a lot of fun every time we go there!

There is no greater place in Wisconsin to get ice cream treats! I always get the chocolate malt, which is perfect! They also have a huge selection of homemade candies which are also delicious. Chad is the nicest guy, and always greets you with a hello and a smile!

My parents brought me here a couple weeks ago. They told me they used to bring my oldest siblings here in the 60's. I fell in love with this place right away. The nostalgic atmosphere brings a person back in time. We had ice cream that was fabulous! We come up from Winona and have been here 3 times in... More

If you have ever wanted home made candy this is the place to go. Sundae's to make your mouth water as they make them, soda's from the fountain and the best chocolate (lite and dark) dipped caramels that melt in your mouth. Love Food is the best I have ever eaten. Anise candy that will warm you thru and thru.... More
