La King's is a great ice cream shop, candy store and soda shop. No visit to Galveston is complete without going. They always have a great variety of ice cream and candy but what's special is the old fashioned soda shop. Our favorite is a black and white soda which is chocolate soda with vanilla ice cream.

What can be said about La King's Confectionary other than it is every child's dream store! Candy, ice cream, old fashioned tables! The service was great and employees very friendly. Was nice to duck inside and cool off on a hot Texas day!

If it is sweet, La King's has it! Coffee bar, ice cream bar, tons of candy... It is a great place to get out of the heat and have a treat.

super cute and quaint old-timey ice cream shop. We went 3 times on our trip, and tried something different each time. You can even watch the taffy pulling. Great for finding gifts or souvenirs, too.

I love this candy paradise. It is a place I take all visitors. A double scoop of Bluebell in a turn of century drug store ambience. Candy is pricey, but quality costs. This is my place for special treats for a sick friend or special occasion.

Been coming here since I was a kid. Best saltwater taffy in Galveston. Great atmosphere, and fun for families to relax and indulge a sugar craving.

Delicious ice cream convections, fresh candies made while you watch, taffy pulls and friendly staff. I frequent this local candy factory for saltwater taffy with a large selection of flavors for special presentations. Table favors or Christmas presents which will please everyone.

Any time my family eats at Saltwater Grill or Nonno Tony's in downtown Galveston, we save room for a visit to La King's. Its more than just a candy confectionery, its one of Galveston's best attraction's. My kids love watching them make saltwater taffy. The treat you like family.

Located on the Strand in Galveston, La King's is a must stop for anyone visiting Galveston. We never miss it when we come. Huge candy store with almost an overwhelming selection of chocolates and candies. The saltwater taffy is made right in front of everyone on the same old mixer they've had for decades. Stepping in to La King's is... More
