My family enjoyed some delicious homemade gelato. It was hard narrowing down what to get because all of the pastries, truffles, and other desserts looked delicious. We will make sure to stop here often on future vacations.

I always make the trek to the Scarborough Faire shopping emporium - it's my favorite. Open air & cute little shops to find some fun stuff. This year we wandered into the Sweet Duck and discovered their amazing taffy selection! Bacon Wrapped maple? Chili Mango? Smores? Heck yeah... we'll add this to the "must do" list every year too!

My husband and I stumbled upon this hidden treasure just when we needed some peace and quiet from the grandchildren! It was like a beautiful,cool oasis. The owner was very friendly. Our margarita flatbread sandwiches were delicious and his drinks hit the spot!! We took some salted caramel cheesecake home that was to die for!! We also had the delicious... More

This was a great little spot to grab a cup of gelato and the service was excellent, the service in some other shoppes has not been very good. They also have wine and lunch/ light dinner fare. We will be going back.

This pace was awesome. Great gifts, wine, gluten free beers. Lots of homemade baked goods and handmade Italian style gelato, definitely earns the name "sweet duck". I tried the Carribean brisket " meat pie". Amazing, lots of love went into making it and you could taste it. I had a good long chat with the owner, who cooked it for... More

Husband loved cannoli! Said best he ever had. We had gelato and it was delicious. So many homemade sweets to choose from! We all enjoyed visiting with the owner very much as well! Yum!

We went 3 times over the course if the week, once in the morning, once in midmorning and another time early afternoon, they were never open! We even called to make sure they'd be open but then when we got there they were closed! Another couple was there and very disappointed too! Maybe next time.

I am so sorry that we were not there so you could enjoy our goodies. We had a family issue and had to go out of town, and our employee came down sick and could not open. Our seasonal help is not here yet and we had no one to mind the store. If I was there I would have... More

Every time I come here, I get the Donatella gelato - a hazelnut chocolate flavor. The staff was friendly and very patient with my boyfriend who wanted to try about five different flavors before finally deciding. Delicious! We will be back next year!

We stopped in here to check out the offerings, as they have an extensive menu of coffee drinks. They also had some lovely looking chocolates. They offer Nathan's Hot Dogs (The Best), among other things, but the Fresh Stuffed Cannoli's took our eye. Excellent!
