A definite to stop in with kids or teenagers. Two floors of all kinds of candy treats. They even have Christmas ornaments. A word of caution...expensive! Think about setting a limit on the amount your kids can spend. Hard to do. We spent $55.00 on candy scooped in bags & it really wasn't that much candy. Go downstairs & find... More

This shop has the greatest variety of penny candy for a dollar each. And the cafe/restaurant, while cutely decorated, suggests that Macdonalds, by comparison, should have three stars from Michelin. Avoid 60th street if you're with children.

It's like walking into your wildest childhood candy store dream. I had the Oreo cheesecake ice cream upstairs and I must say, yum! The staff upstairs at the bar was the worst. Walked away after I paid and my friend was right behind me ready to pay as well. Staff was texting and sitting on the counter when we got... More

There's a ridiculous amount of candy, including every sort of gummy animal you can imagine. Make sure to check out the basement, which has an area with old-fashioned candies that aren't easy to find anymore, as well as an area with gourmet chocolates and things. It's a bit pricey, so I usually only buy a bit, but it's a fun... More

The minute you walk through the door you are hit with the strong smell of candy and sweets. It is billed as 3 floors of candy, but the 3rd floor houses a cafe area that I'd read too many bad reviews before visiting to try. They had a huge selection of candy and treats, but the prices were out of... More

Candy shop was over the top for my 10 year old daughter with every candy imaginable! Lunch on the other hand tasted like microwave food.....20.00 per person for bland flat bread pizza and tea! Will not recommend lunch!

I've been to the one in Miami and this one is great as well. It has 2 floors and adult beverages are served on the second floor. The bartenders were very friendly and made tasty drinks. I had the birthday cake shot, which comes in an edible waffle cone shot cup. I also had the adult chocolate milk which was... More

As we walked through this shop trying to decide what candy to buy, we went down stairs and saw the Belgium chocolate fountain. They were out of strawberries, so we bought Rice Krispy treats and had them dunked in chocolate. It was a fabulous treat, and they only cost $2 each. I would highly recommend it!

Kids always drag us here. We love it at the shop. Smell sweet and fun store on the inside. Staff are helpful. As with most candy stores it is expensive at the end of the day. Still a fun thing to do.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
