Stressed Staff! 🥺
Aug 2021 • Couples
While visiting family- we decided to stop in & buy some salt water taffy as a gift for family & friends.
After tasting a free sample - we weren’t impressed. But after standing in line for over 10 minutes & attempting to buy various items , I decided to buy a few items. While I had my wife waiting in line, I decided to take a few pics to show my friends.
The candy machine was running & I thought this would be a great picture. Instead of inviting me in, the manager began lecturing & embarrassing me on the purpose of his gate that stopped more than 20 patrons from gathering.
After his obvious stressed out approach & attack on me - I realized that my presence was not beneficial to either of us - so I found my wife & abandon our $25 of planned purchases.

FRESH!!
Jul 2021 • Family
This taffy is made fresh on site! No empty bins! FRESH!! Describes it best!! Nice that they have a scale so you can weigh your bag to know what to expect. They are practicing safe measures by limiting number of guests at one time and separate entry/exit.

Feed your sweet tooth
Aug 2020
You can't go to Cannon Beach and not leave with a bag full of fresh saltwater taffy from Bruce's Candy Kitchen. Nearly any American sweet imaginable can be found in this quaint candy store. Free taffy samples are available if you happen to have the opportunity to see them make the taffy in the front window!

Bruce’s is legendary
Apr 2021 • Couples
For those of us that grew up in the 60’s and 70’s coming to Cannon Beach, Bruce’s is a little slice of heavenly memories. It is bigger now and has so much more candy I find it a bit overwhelming but the quality of their chocolates has remained very good. It has been family owned and run since the beginning. My family loves the seafoam but you can’t go wrong with any of the chocolates. Also, the salt water taffy is the best you’ll find anywhere and it is made on premises. Enjoy!

Disappointing
Feb 2021
I grew up coming to Bruce's each time we would visit Cannon Beach. I remember loving this candy store. I recently took my daughter who also loved it. However, the people working were not very friendly and several items weren't priced. I bought a number of treats for both myself, my daughter, and to take home to her two older brothers. Unfortunately, the mint chip cordials I bought my son had several bad ones in it. Also, the chocolates I ordered from the case tasted stale. I'm hoping it was just a bad bunch and this experience wasn't enough to keep me from going back. I'll give it another go the next time I'm traveling through.

Been a Must Stop For 50+ Years; Doesn't Disappoint Even in COVID
Aug 2020
I've been going to the Oregon coast for more than 50 years and to Bruce's nearly that long as well. It's a must stop in Cannon Beach and didn't disappoint last weekend. The town was so crowded because the weather was amazing.

So, we waited in line to get into the store, used the provided hand sanitizer at the door and wore masks. So did the other patrons and employees. Thank goodness it was the same as always even with COVID so we could get our bag of salt water taffy. It just isn't a trip to the beach without it.

They make the taffy fresh right there. You can usually watch them make it.

Not safe
Jul 2020
This is a pretty typical candy store for a seaside tourist town. It might be OK under normal circumstances, but they are not operating safely during the current pandemic. They have signs that they are limiting the numbers of people in the store, but they are not. They offer hand sanitizer at the entry and exits; no one is using it. Masks are required by the state to be worn in all indoor businesses, but they are not enforcing that, either. This is a crowded nightmare, and I feel sorry for their employees.

A favorite for my kids
Feb 2020
Very cute store. We came during a very slow season so the sampling taffy they had out was as hard as a rock haha. I'm sure it is fresher during the busy months. They have really cute trinkets.

A Cannon Beach must!
Nov 2019 • Family
I brought my kids ages six and three to Bruce’s Candy kitchen, and they had the same excitement in their eyes as I did visiting 20+ years ago. It’s always fun to watch the salt water taffy being made, and see all of the different items they have for sale. Definitely worth stopping in for a treat at this nostalgic establishment.
