“James Beard Award Winner”

Lagomarcino’s Confectionery
Ranked #1 of 6 Dessert in Moline
Certificate of Excellence
Description: Lagomarcino's is a place steeped in family tradition. Sometimes, during the busy lunch hour as you're sitting in one of the gorgeous, handcrafted mahogany booths, you will start to feel a nostalgic calm, a satisfying wistfulness. You will begin to notice pleasant memories drifting quietly past your table, sweet memories smelling faintly of chocolate.

This charming soda shop is a treasure. The beautifully decorated windows welcome patrons into one of Moline's favorite spots. I love the ham salad on homemade rye bread and their secret hot fudge sauce is the best around. This is a great place to bring "out-of-towners" for lunch. I often take business associates here and they are always delighted. Be sure and stop at the candy counter on the way out and purchase some sponge candy.

Lagomarcino's is a 100+ year-old confectionary and restaurant. It has a fun, old-timey, casual atmosphere. The food is simple, but very good and the ice cream specialties are terrific. One of the most notable things about "Lago's" is the old-time candy counter full of delicious candies, made right there. Lagomarcino's is an experience as much as an eating place.

authentic 1920's candy and ice cream shop. Possibly the oldest soda fountain left in Illinois; not a re-creation

A wonderful old fashioned ice cream parlor. Great place to take the kids or pick up treats for any holiday. Hand made candies to die for!

This is the place for charm and homemade candy. I do eat a meal here, a lot better places, but their candy is worth the stop. During the cooler months they make a sponge candy that is the best I have ever had. It is a family run place and they take care and great pride in their product. Make sure to stop by if you are in the area.
