Description: Candy store, Coffee shop, Ice Cream Parlour, and Old Time Soda Fountain
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We stop by every time we visit the Strand. I would describe this place as an old fashioned ice cream parlor and candy shop with some twists.

The Twists: 1) They have a coffee bar where you can order regular coffee or specialty drinks like mochas and lattes. 2) They have a great atmosphere inside and plenty of places to sit and enjoy your ice cream, shake, coffee, candy, fudge, taffy, souvenirs, frappuccinos, etc... 3) They have a little Saltwater taffy factory in the store where, if you catch them at the right time, you can watch them make the taffy.

This place is #1 for a reason. For many people it is a tradition (view the traveler's photos to get a feel for the place). Check it out, you won't be disappointed. Enjoy!

Our first stop after the RR Museum for some treats. The prices are reasonable, selection is amazing and the Ice Cream was good too.

Perfect Coffee. Candy & Chocolate selection is a trip down memory lane.
They also make the perfect Creme Soda

This was a great find on trip advisor. Old fashion soda shop with lots of candy.
We have been twice since getting to Galveston 4 days ago.
Highly recommend to try with the family on a romantic date.

Great soda fountain with good ice cream, generous dips! All sorts of candies! Love their fudge, and the Dr. Pepper jelly beans! The sandwiches are good, too! Fresh lemonade, a fun place!
