I live in Galveston and anytime we have company we take them to the Strand area. We love it. I'm a people watcher and she's a shopper so this is the perfect area. When we're at the Strand LA King's is a MUST. that's especially true for anyone with kids. Ice cream is awesome and the taffy demo is fun.

Have visited several times with family and friends. It is a must stop in a visit to Galveston. Awesome ice cream, shakes, taffy and chocolate. In our last visit my family visited daily, and got shakes to go when we left the Island.

La Kings is a cool historic place to grab something sweet. They have a huge assortment of candy. In the display cases they have old hard candy cases that traveling salesmen used to sell door to door. The inside of the building looks straight out of the 1800's, and includes an old school ice cream parlor where you can order... More

We went to La King's because my husband and I both love Salt Water Taffy. We happened to enter at the perfect time. They were pulling taffy and throwing out pieces to all those watching. It was such fun. We also of course purchased some taffy and a root beer float. Both were exceptional. A fun candy store to visit.

This is a family favorite when we are in Galveston. We popped in on a very hot Monday afternoon and watched salt water taffy being made and enjoyed ice cream cones. This is a fun stop.

What a cool place! Whether you want coffee, ice cream, chocolate, candy or just an air conditioned place to sit down for a break from shopping La King's is amazing. We happened to time our visit when the candy maker was using the taffy pull machine and it was mesmerizing to watch. A must stop for any Galveston trip!

Everyone is sweet and helpful. Enjoy supporting small business but it is loud and rowdy and confusing to get checked out. But hey its a candy shop with kids

Been there twice in the last three days. The only bad thing is it's within easy walking distance from where I live. My waist line is taking a beating. Best place for an ice cream cone. Kids love the jelly beans. Watch out for flying taffy!!!

Yes, the whole family enjoyed the King Banana Split- since it was my birthday, I said "We are going to La King's for the giant banana split!" Heaven! It is 3 Giant scoops of ice cream of any flavors so you choose, plus you choose all the toppings you want, so it is very individualized! It was really awesome, and... More

An almost overwhelmingly wonderful assortment of gourmet baked goods, candies, and ice cream in a beautiful and historic setting. Wanted to stay and explore for hours and visit with the abundance of friendly staff.
