“Best Ice Cream in Salem!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

This is a little belated as we went to Salem last year but on both trips my hubby and i had to stop in to this cute and inviting Candy/Ice Cream/Nifty Gift locale. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the many different sweet treats offered. The hot fudge is not just some over corn-starched to death cheep syrup but rather molten fudge and the chocolate almond ice cream is tops. We miss it already an cannot wait for an excuse to drive back up to Salem next spring.

“Sweet indeed.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Maria's is a charming little sweets shop that was lit up with orange Christmas type lights. We had a cupcake and frozen hot chocolate which was very good. I read the other reviews about Maria but she was more than friendly and welcoming..maybe because my companion is also Greek ;). I even saw Maria offer a local tour guide a free hot chocolate. I just think the other people who wrote bad things about Maria probably acted like annoying tourists! Cute place!

“Great ice cream and cupcakes”

Service is fast and the sweets are good. This is behind old city hall if you are approaching from Essex Street.
