My wife and I just got back from Galveston Island and we had a great time. Among our many stops was LaKings for ice cream. They had a great selection of home made ice creams and we both enjoyed our afternoon treat. It is a sweet tooths dream stop!! The staff was friendly and the place was clean and tidy.... More

We LOVE coming to LaKing's every time we go to Galveston. Getting an authentic cherry Coke or a freshly blended milkshake while trying to pick out enough taffy to last until our next visit is always a high point to every visit!

Our group stopped through for ice creams: coffee choc chip was a huge hit, praline was amazing, caramel tortue was delicious. Sand dollars are the perfect combo of good quality caramel, white, milk or dark chocolate and pecan, almond or cashew. I also bought a mixed bag of salt water taffey for a friend back home, it's his favorite!

This place is great, and the secret is out- expect crowds! Beautiful candy's, old fashioned sodas, and delicious ice cream. Prices are pretty reasonable for such a novelty- $3 ice cream cones & cups. A must stop in the Strand area.

We headed back to Galveston for a quick stop at the strand, a beautiful historic area and the well known soda fountain at La King's. Everyone had a Shake....pineapple, butterscotch, chocolate, and strawberry, plus my root beer float...classics and a full double in the stainless container....yum! 6.25 each. Bruce said they were just like back in high school....and don't forget... More

This is a place you have to stop by on the Strand. Kids will love it and a great place to stop during a hot summers day or for that matter anytime of year. Not a place when you are on a diet but y ou can always share. So many choices between Ice Cream, Coffees, and Candies. Like taking... More

We go to the LA King's Confectionery EVERY time we go to Galveston. My daughter has to have some of their mint chocolate chip ice cream, my husband always gets a float, and I always get the Texas Butter Pecan coffee! There is an old fashion horse ride my daughter rides EVERY time we go, and it is only .50... More

We stop by every time we visit the Strand. I would describe this place as an old fashioned ice cream parlor and candy shop with some twists. The Twists: 1) They have a coffee bar where you can order regular coffee or specialty drinks like mochas and lattes. 2) They have a great atmosphere inside and plenty of places to... More
