This retro style shop's been trading for sooo many years, while others have come and gone on Avon Terrace. An absolute riot of all things sugary (the dentist would so not approve) plus local produce (organic olives, olive oil etc). We stop in every time...More

We had a great time looking around this little shop. The local ice cream available here was amazing and i wish we had bought more!

Delicious and super yummy. Some take you back down memory lane of the special 'sweeties' that were a treat. Immaculate shop, too many to choose from and certainly worth a visit. I live nearby so this is a terrible distraction!! Haha...

A great range of English (and American) lollies. Fantastic talking points on the walls. Warm and friendly owners with a rich WA history.

The most charming customer service and wickedly extensive array of sweets. So....... 3 X visits in one day was a bit excessive BUT I kept remembering a few people who deserved me to get them an uncommon treat! Lovely!

Super friendly owner, plenty of sweets from Australia, USA and England, and the old country charm that comes from a shop packed to the brim with bits and pieces. It's right smack bang in the middle of town so easy to get to as you...More
