Best taffy and ice cream in town

We took 6 adults and 4 kids LA Kings on a busy summer evening. We were served quickly by friendly staff. The ice cream is about the best ice cream I have ever eaten. Lots of flavors and very, very good. My wife lost her wallet with a lot of cash, credit cards and I.D. She didn't notice until the... More

This is an outstanding location for the family to get ice cream and sweets. You can watch saltwater toffee be made and packaged on antique equipment. The confectionery delights are made in house and the ice cream makes a great summer treat when walking the strand.

You gave to stop here if you're visiting the Galveston strand! So many sweets to choose from. The staff was attentive and helpful - which is quite commendable considering the number of people in the store. Everyone left with rock candy in hand.

Home made fudge, taffy, and Carmel. This place is great!! It can get crowded and it may be hard to get a seat but it's very worth it. A must for anyone in Galveston.
