“What a treat”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Going to the Candy Shop is like a trip into the past - a treat for anyone getting gray in the temples! So many wonderful treats from days gone by - things you thought didn't exist anymore! After picking up numerous old fashioned treats to take home, it's an absolute delight to sit at the counter and enjoy one of their soda fountain creations! I'm sure the more 'mature' visitor will find this a delightful experience. Kids just seem to think it's fun - and yes, it is!

“Ice Cream!!”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

Really good ice cream and great prices! So many places are charging an arm and a leg for an ice cream cone- I don't know how a family could afford this best treat of summer. At the Chocolate Drop- aka Dave's Soda Fountain- the prices are good and the size of the cone makes it a real deal! The staff is friendly and helpful, too!

“Great for your favorite old fashioned candies!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

A huge variety of candy to choose from, even candy from long ago! This is also an ice cream shop with counter service. The staff were young, friendly and nice! Reasonable prices!

“Must stop here”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

This place is a must stop for anyone visiting Belfast. The homemade ice cream and sodas are incredible. Or better yet, combine them into a rootbeer float!

“Charming Decor-"ok" Ice Cream”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

Though the decor of the Chocolate Drop is an adorably authentic soda shop, the ice cream is really only ho-hum and the chocolates look less than desirable.
