Pricey, but goood

The ice cream is DIVINE. You get what you pay for. I love watching the crew prepare the candy items. The sights and smells of this place are delectable. Freshly-made waffle cones, chocolate, coffee...yum!

We stopped twice during our newport visit during the winter break at Kilwin's and enjoyed the ice creams and chocolates.

Although Kirwins has many flavors of ice cream as well as fudge and other sweets, we always opt for the Sea Salt Caramel or, when sold out, the Rum Raisin ice cream.

On a cold weekend, my husband and I was Christmas shopping in Newport and stopped in for hot chocolate. The hot chocolate was excellent and just what we were looking for to warm us up. The hot chocolate seemed a bit expensive but it hit the spot. There was a lot of chocolate products for sale that we did not... More

They were making chocolate when we were visiting, so wonderful to watch them temper it. You won't be able to leave without buying something - a chocolate lover's dream shop!!!!

There is a Kilwins here in Sarasota, so when I saw this one, I wanted to have my friend taste the fudge. When we asked for a few samples, she grudgingly obliged. Ended up buying plain dark chocolate, but I really wanted to walk away because of the way we were treated.

When we finished our excellent dinner at the adjacent Brick Alley Pub - Killwin's was still open, and although we weren't hungry, we were drawn inside by the beautiful decor, the fantastic smell and the endless choices of ice creams and tasty fudge. We had ice creams and bought different kinds of fudge for later: It's all handmade, fresh and... More

Good place to stop for a tempting snack or dessert. Ice cream on a hot day or freshly mad fudge. The owner is very friendly

Having a stroll through Newport after supper, we stopped here for treats. I got a cup of Praline Pecan ice cream, and it was outstanding! My friends got chocolate treats that they enjoyed very much.

Kilwin's is a Florida staple and they have brought their quality products to Newport. All of the products are of a high quality and very tasty. Today we had the fudge and 3 flavors of ice cream, chocolate fudge brownie, New Orleans Caramel Pecan Praline, and Heavenly Hash. All were excellent.
