Love the Ice Cream . The place does get crowded, so it's hard to find somewhere to sit. Most of the employees are teenagers, so you'll have to literally flagged them down and place your order. If not, they will just stand there and won't ask if you need help.

Each time we go to Galveston, I stop in. Their ice cream is great and all the other goodies look amazing. Clean, friendly, yummy and cute!

Great experience for kids and a family. We cooled off with frizen yummy treats. ..chocolate chocolate chip ice cream, root beer floats and an old fashioned banana split. Kids loaded up on salt water taffy. We will definitely go back on our next trip...a little crowded, but it was prime tourist time.

Good place to get various goods if you have a sweet tooth and spend time to relax if in a group walking around the strand

This was a great place to escape the heat and definitely a fun atmosphere inside. The Caramel Apple Smoothie was yum, but guessing it would be pretty crowded on the weekend.

An old fashioned candy store feel. Very busy & full of sweet yumminess. The ice cream is creamy and fresh. Got some candy to take home. Some employees seemed irritated & there isn't an organized system as to who helps who. Stand by the candy counter & wait for service. A nice find in Galveston & family friendly. Recommended.

This was right in the middle of the historical district. We had a shake and it was delicious. It was a little packed but the service was quick and it was nice and cool and on a hot summer day everyone thought ice cream was a good idea. It felt like you went back in time. Kids really enjoyed it.... More

We had ice cream. The cinnamon was delicious, the cookies and cream good but the mocha chip disappointing with frozen chips and no mocha flavor. Somewhat expensive for a scoop of ice cream.

This is a great confectionery! The decor and atmosphere takes you back to the early Twentieth Century and is full of charm along with great Ice Cream and Candy. This is one place you've got to stop in and try- don't be surprised there will be lines, especially during the summer months.
