The candies and ice cream may seem a bit pricey, but come on, you're vacationing at the coast! Great location close to the pier. Friendly and courteous staff. Oh, yes, and of course yummy ice cream and great handmade chocolates.

Always stop in with my kids for ice cream and/or candy. Every flavor is solid. My personal favorite is the Peppermint that they sell in the Winter. Great place to get a cool refreshing snack while on the beach.

Stopped in to get these yummy treats before heading home. Great variety of candy packed into a small shop. A bit pricey. ... but if your wanting it you'll pay for sure. Staff was busy talking about people and gossiping so much they didn't focus on customers, but continued their discussion as they checked out shoppers.

Great candy and ice cream. All kinds of silly sweets and the sales staff were friendly and polite. Right next to the pier to pick up a treat to share on the walk out to the end.

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.
