Did Not Live Up to Expectations

After reading the glowing reviews, I stopped in and chose a pound of assorted chocolates and some fudge. The best I can say about the chocolate was that it was just okay. If those chocolates were mixed on a plate with Russell Stover, I doubt anyone could tell the difference. I would recommend... read more

I went here for desert, after eating dinner at a neighboring restaurant. I can certainly say that the ice cream that I had here was among the best I have ever enjoyed. They have many flavors, and all types of chocolate candies as well. Be aware that the prices are not cheap, but it is good to splurge once in... More

While I was on vacation with my husband at Newport. We decided to visit Kilwins it was fantastic. Best waffles I've had.

Always visit after a great meal at Benjamin's. Great, fresh candies of all types. The candied apples and the old fashioned honeycombs are the best.

Wherever you eat save some room for Kilwin's. My wife got a "bear claw" - a giant caramel nougat clustered with cashews and chocolate….to die for!

Location: Literally located in the center of Newport across the street from the wharf. On the cobblestone walk side. Atmosphere: This is a chocolate and ice cream shop. Very clean. Price: It's not cheap but it is worth it. The quality of chocolate is exceptional. I would put it against the best chocolates like Bridgewater Chocolates in Bridgewater, CT. Service:... More

After a miserably expensive dinner across the way, this shop was just the pick me up needed to begin forgetting about a bad and focus on a good. Tried a few different flavors of ice cream and stuck with a simple and good peach ice cream or was it blueberry? I can't remember the exact flavor but I do remember... More

We were very excited to see a Kilwins in Newport. We haven't had their ice cream since we were in Florida several years back. So glad we were able to find one. The milkshakes are the best. Strawberry ice cream tastes like fresh strawberries. Its perfect!

Kilwins is a great taste experience when you want to indulge in a chocolate or icecream treat. It is popular amoung tourists because of its location. It is clean with very pretty and appealing packaging, but as a local, I feel it's very over priced for visitors ! Many other shops in the area also offer fun chocolate treats that... More
