Truly delicious, it starts to close a little earlier because of the time of year. Boy, please try the gelato, we had raspberry & dark chocolate all three nights we were in Cayucous. It was divine.

No where in our travels around the Cayucos area did we find an ice cream and candy shop this cool. It features quite a variety of goods to eat in or take with you. Maybe just a tad pricey for what it is, I wouldn't avoid it for that reason. Afterall, this is tax-heavy California and small business are at... More

All the kids in town at one point receive gift certificates from The Candy Counter. Much allowance is spent at this place by kids and grownups. They have a good selection of licorice and the have great gelato. People are friendly that work behind the counter and the business donates a lot to the community.

We've tried this place several times and always come away with the same conclusion. Very warm and stuffy in the store and the clerks never seem very happy to be working there.

This is a cute little candy and ice cream store very close to the pier. There's a nice variety of candy and chocolates. I really enjoyed the array of salt water taffy. They also serve several flavors of ice cream and gelato. I felt that the gelato was a bit pricey for the small size cup, but it was delicious.... More
