There is usually a line here at night, because the place is so little, it will only hold a few people at a time. The ice cream was good, but you could end up spending too much on candy. Unless you are really craving a certain candy that you haven't had in a long time, I would skip the candy.

A friend told us about this place, so we decided to check it out. Glad we did. This is some of the best ice cream around these parts of FL. Be aware, the lines get LONG but it's worth it. I got the cookie dough ice cream in a waffle cone...the chunks of cookie dough were huge. Price wasn't bad... More

Mostly getting ice cream. I had black rasberry and caramel sundaes. My daughter had the Italian ice. Other daughter had pistachio. Husband had the frozen banana-my son liked trying different sodas. Neat atmosphere. Just a nice family place to stop.

We stayed a block from the Candy Kitchen and enjoyed it almost daily! Nostalgic candy from every era, wonderful ice cream and homemade fudge. There are two locations on Gulf Blvd. Don't miss the Candy Kitchen! You won't be disappointed - Best Ice Cream in Madeira Beach!

Mom and Pop ice cream shop on Gulf Blvd. Our family visited here nightly for an after dinner treat. Great ice cream! Variety of flavors and some of your favorite candy from years ago!

for the Candy Kitchen… so fun. Landmark place for fun candy and ice cream. Homemade fudge was delicious too. Kids thoroughly enjoyed this place. LONG lines at night. Go early or go to Reddington location in the evening!

If you are looking for a place to go for ice cream you will not be disappointed. This is about or 6th trip to it over the last 4 or 5 years. We make it a point to go here everytime we go to the beach. Now there isn't a ton of seating, though they did redo the outside tables... More

This place has the coolest bathroom I've ever seen. Really creative decorations and the staff there was extremely friendly. Their banana splits are huge and will feed at least 2 people. And the chocolate covered frozen bananas were really good too. Everything was great! !!!

Ice cream had a great flavor and great value. The staff is very friendly and welcoming to visitors. I would recommend it especially after a hot summer beach day!
