We've tried this place several times and always come away with the same conclusion. Very warm and stuffy in the store and the clerks never seem very happy to be working there.

This is a cute little candy and ice cream store very close to the pier. There's a nice variety of candy and chocolates. I really enjoyed the array of salt water taffy. They also serve several flavors of ice cream and gelato. I felt that the gelato was a bit pricey for the small size cup, but it was delicious.... More
