“Going back in time...”

Hillside Sweet House
Ranked #1 of 1 Dessert in East Haddam
Restaurant details
Reviewed November 9, 2013

I usually visit this place at least once or twice a year. It's so old-fashioned and little, but so 'sweet'! Some of the candies there are a bit stale and need to be remembered to be replaced with more fresh products. The ice-cream is always wonderful and they even have some selections of candy that are from old-times, if you will! It's so fun and the toys for the children provide smiles for everyone.

Delicious hand scooped ice cream in a little shop with candies and small toys. The candy was not impressive, but the ice cream was worth the stop.

A local institution, this is a great place for frozen treats and candies and chocolates! They even have toys! The ice cream is fantastic, and the frozen yogurt is outstanding. They even have low-sugar options.

But the real treat is the homemade hot fudge. It is exceptional and I can't order a sundae anywhere else; just does not compare! Service is great, prices are fair. And they really do their best to support locally made products.

Parking is a small hassle, but it is worth it!

They have a wide variety of ice creams and frozen yogourts, including some local ones from Glastonbury. It is a perfect place to go after dinner in one of the local restaurants. I would recommend parking outside the store and then going for a walk around the village.
