Not necessarily the full service dinner or meal. The ice cream was yummy. But the over size malted milk ball at the bottom was a pleasant surprise. Just a great treat on a hot afternoon. Service was ok, not necessarily outstanding. The place itself is a small shop along the main drag.

“Best place on earth for fresh baked goods and ice cream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Regardless of how many or how few tourists are in Bayfield any given day or night, one will always wait in line at the Candy Shoppe. At times the line is out the front door. Even though I'm addicted to ice cream, the Shoppe's specialty of is breakfast wine breads. Made with some 8-10 fresh or fresh frozen fruits, they are so fantastically tasty that those baked goods alone make this a mandatory must-stop for anyone traveling within 25 miles of Bayfield. Their cinnamon buns and sticky buns topped with pecans are also awesome. Then there is the candy, with one wall lined with some 30-40 flavors of salt water taffy. The Shoppe sells perhaps 24 flavors of locally-made ice cream. Scoops for at least the past 8 years have been beyond generous. The best for chocoholics is Zanzibar. I order two scoops. It is nearly impossible to be too generous with a review of this fabulous store. The Candy Shoppe should be declared a National Historical Landmark!

“A "Must"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

No trip to Bayfield is complete without a stop at The Candy Shoppe! The Wine Bread pastries are one-of-a-kind. Call ahead and Pre-order for pick-up (blackberry a personal fave). Perfect for a sweet breakfast treat. If you get lucky you might walk in and find an "extra" unspoken for :-) They also have the best ice cream in town. Make sure to ask for the malted milk ball in the bottom of the cone! This family run business is also known for their turtles and toffee. And then there's the candy....

“Awesome fudge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

One of the things about Bayfield my wife most looks forward to is fudge from the Candy Shoppe and it never disappoints. Their home made candies and chocolates are really good too, a word of warning, the more time you spend in the shop the more you'll buy!

VERY friendly staff, wonderful experience. We actually went more than once during our stay in Bayfield, and loved everything we had. Highly recommend sticky buns! Yummy!
