We were disappointed at the lack of selection on taffy and candies. Prices were steep. We had to wait 10 plus minutes for one scoop of ice cream. Not a good choice if you hVe kiddos.

Thank you for taking the time to comment on the products that Nye Beach Sweets has to offer.

I agree that we don’t have as large a selection of taffy as some other places in town but we do carry the most popular flavors along with a “mixed” bag and even sugar free taffy variety. Is there a specific kind of candy you were looking for that we do not carry in the 37 varieties we do have?

We also carry 28 flavors of ice cream (including no sugar added and dairy free) and 46 flavors of milk, dark and white chocolates (regular and sugar free options) along with caramel corn (4 flavors), toffee (2 flavors), brownies (4 flavors), 17 varieties of cookies (including vegan and gluten free). We also make fresh in our shop all 18 plus flavors of our fudge – the selection will vary depending on the time of year.

I am very sorry that you had to wait 10 plus minutes for your scoop of ice cream. If the day of your posting is the day you were in the shop, I can only imagine that we must have been extremely busy as our schedule shows that there were two people on shift that day. In the future we will continue doing our best to improve our customer’s experience while shopping at Nye Beach Sweets.

The white chocolate dipped caramel was amazing and the salted caramels yummy. The ice cream looked good, too. Worth walking a short way to get something sweet. Walk on the beach for a while and it's pretty guilt free! The relaxation and excercise balances out the delicious calories!

I think they are the only sweet shop in Nye Beach, but I love the atmosphere, and the owner is a very sweet lady. Plus the fudge is amazing, and the peanut butter cups.

First off, DO NOT go here for espresso. People think if a place sells coffee, it's good. It's a lie. Go here for the sweets. The fudge is good, perhaps a little too sweet, if that's possible. They use Tillamook ice cream which is great. They give you huge scoops of ice cream, so that's really nice. When we went the service was slow, but the woman behind the counter made up for it with terrific customer service. There are a few tables inside, but you can always grab it to go and walk around the Nye Beach area.
