We often bike down to the C shop, they have lots if delicious items. Ice cream being the most popular. All their popcorn, fudge etc is all freshly made by the staff, you can watch them through the window. They often come out with samples....Staff are very friendly but they close down after labour day for the season, they work so hard they deserve the break. A must to visit.More

Stopped for the candy. A mixture of locally made and standard commercial candies. Tried several of the truffles and caramels. Left with a mixed assortment of locally made confections. Prices were similar to other local candy stores.

Wonderful place to go in Birch Bay for candy, ice cream and a snack. Really enjoyed it. They have been in business in Birch Bay for almost 50 years

Fun family spot with yummy chocolates and ice cream. They make most of the chocolate they sell.The only food ( other than ice cream and chocolates) that I have tried is their pizza. It was good. Our little granddaughter loves coming here for ice cream....We like to sit outside and people watch. We're locals and wish this was open all year long, not just for the summer.More

Thank you for the lovely review! As a local, you know how quiet it is here in the winter. We really appreciate your business in the summer. Tourists keep us busy, but locals keep us in business! :)

One of the first places we visited when we got to Birch Bay was The C Shop. Wonderful salt water Taffy with a huge selection of flavors. Chocolate, which is hard for me to turn down, is in abundant supply. Something with chocolate, marshmallow, and...caramel had me coming back the following week. The ice cream was also very good. If you have a sweet tooth then this is where you go in Birch BayMore

We had the mediterranean and a meat pizza. The pizza was tasty and dense with toppings. The pizza is expensive but it is so loaded it goes a long way!

I could eat caramel apples from the C Shop every day. A caramel apple a day will certainly make me very happy. A huge thank you to the staff for keeping this great tradition going. It started when I was in high school and I...love seeing the family still going strong. We will be back the next time we’re in Whatcom county.More

The C Shop is one of the last true candy shops around. You can get ice cream and an amazing array of homemade chocolates and candy. Always a treat for the kids on vacation. Also has a restaurant attached.

Missed it this year - it is only seasonal - if I remember correctly May Long Weekend to Labour Day - but the PIZZA ... OMG the pizza - because it is prepared with fresh ingredients so worth the wait - then there is fresh...cinnamon buns to pick up for breakfast, ice cream and candy and more - sorry we missed it this year.More
