“A candy shop for little and big kids:)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Cayucos is the archtypical quaint little Californian beach town. And the Cayucos Candy Counter fits right into this storybook setting offering in abundance the nostalgic candies of your dreams. There is salt water taffy, of course, and other candies of every kind of variety and hue, along with a selection of homemade chocolates and toffees, and delectable ice creams and coffee drinks. Whatever the weather or time of day, you will see an endless parade of smiling families, couples and singles strolling out only the beachfront esplanade slurping with equal concentration on the beach scene and their dripping ice creams. These treats are not exactly cheap, of course, but are in integral part of the perfect Central Coast beach experience taking everyone back to the simple pleasures of childhood and innocence lost. Enjoy!

“Ice cream & Candy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

When your done playing on the beach what could be better than a yummy ice cream cone from the Cayucos Candy Counter. You have so many flavors to choose from and if your chilly from the sea water then you can grab a mocha drink. A wide assortment of candy to pick from too. They have a walk up counter on the outside of the building so you don't have to even go inside. The kids love this store.

“Ice cream, candy and coffee.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

This place has something for everyone. Salt water taffy, chocolate candies, sweets, ice cream and coffee. I loved the rocky road ice cream, coffee and salt water taffy.

With ice cream, gelato, coffee drinks and a huge assortment of candy, this place was a hit with everyone in our group. The coffee with gelato/ice cream in it was outstanding!
