“Good ice cream, incredible chocolate selection”
Reviewed 10 November 2012

Wonderful ice cream made on sight. As you eat it, you can peruse a huge selection of handmade chocolates, also made in-house. Worth the trip.

“Galveston History”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

I have always loved going into La Kings. Who dosnt like the smell of candy? The building is beautiful inside. They have a large selection of candy among other things. It's been around since I was a kid and I enjoy bringing my children there.

“Great place a feast for some senses- not the greatest service or ice cream”
Reviewed 7 November 2012

We were really looking forward to our trip to La King's and the place didn't disappoint. It is in a fabulous location and the shop itself is awesome.

However the ice cream itself was a disappointment, not a patch on Justin's in San Antonio or Coffee Waves in Port Aransas. Also the server was miserable and obviously wanted to be somewhere else. That never makes for a happy customer.

So a great feast for the eyes and nose, not so much for the taste buds.

“Nothing Else Like IT!”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

This place is fantastic. Right on the Strand in Galveston and they serve any kind of candy or ice cream that you could possibly imagine and some that you would never think up. It is a must stop for folks with kids or grandkids. Family run and operated it is refreshing to see a unique place that is not a chain and one that is run like something from a long time ago.....quality and great service!
