“Good effort”
Reviewed 17 May 2014 via mobile

Knowledgable workers offering a variety of candies including locally made chocolates. We tried the local ice cream at the 1940s soda fountain too.
All of it reflects a good effort in Ithaca.

“Life really is sweet”
Reviewed 29 January 2014

Overall, this is our favorite area chocolate shop. The treats are delicious and we find the prices extremely reasonable. My wife's favorite is the "Houdini Crunch" while I enjoy the dark chocolate covered anytings. We actually visited the Trumansburg and Ithaca locations.

“A hidden gem in Ithaca - gifts and chocolates”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

This is a beautiful candy and chocolate shop with a wide selection of candy treats, candy bars, self-serve jelly beans, beautiful handmade chocolates and a full service ice cream counter. It is also a delightful gift shop and surprisingly had the best selection of Webkinz that I've seen in recent years. Our whole family loved this shop.

“Chocolate and ice cream downtown!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We live downtown. Every time we need a "host gift" we walk over to this store for a small box of chocolates. For around $10 one can get a box of six stunning chocolate pieces. There is also an old-fashioned ice cream bar with stools.
