The place is bright and cheerful. It overwhelms your eyes as well as your taste buds. I wanted to stay there until I tried everything I want. Some how my wife didn't agree with me. Between the candy, the ice creams and the baked goods, it was almost impossible to make a decision. The shop was clean and very well... More

The cupcakes are delicious the frosting is nice and tasty. They also sell candy and it's cute to just walk around and look at all the different candy which brings back memories.

This place is always packed by every age group. Tons of old fashioned candies, childrens toys and great ice cream. They have absolutely the best gluten free carrot cake cupcakes I have ever tasted! They also have gluten free cones, however, they were out when we last went. Ice cream is a tad bit pricey, but it is a specialty... More

I'm usually have vanilla ice cream it's pretty much text book for me. I visited Mr. D's while on a recent trip to Wallingford. The flavor beez neez was recommended from the inn keeper at the Wallingford Victorian. Well, the only negative about this flavor is that I can't find it anywhere else. That flavor is so awesome, it's hard... More

I used to love this place but something seems to have changed with the frosting on the cupcakes. I have tried them several times over the last year when i noticed the different taste and the frosting still tastes soapy to me. I can't pinpoint what it actually is but it seems to be all flavors that have this taste.... More

Nice place for a quick stop in for something sweet after dinner in the area. Have enjoyed the cupcakes several times and I'm told the gluten free ones are some of the best in the area. That being said, I would love to see them spruce up the inside of the place and the general appearance of baked goods in... More

I've been to this shop quite a few times to get my fix for Beez Neez ice cream! It's a house specialty that everyone should try! I've also had their cupcakes which are good. They did a specialty cupcake order for my boss on Halloween with great designs of vampires, tomb stones, etc. The only thing I'm not crazy about... More

They would do better if they had a cappuccino machine that filled the cup, I showed it them and they were like this is right, wrong, terrible. Ice cream and frozen yogurt was stale. Not going back. sad.

This is a happy place. Not only offers great ice cream and cupcakes and candy, but also lots of wonderful toys, some of which are retro, and sure to make you smile.
