What a great little place! A bit on the pricey side, but trendy ice cream and/or candy places tend to be pricey. This place is as good or better than Salt & Straw for less money. Really enjoyed the friendly, knowledgable staff and the cozy, vintage feel of the place. Fantastic ice cream and wonderful hand-crafted candies. Definitely, put this... More

We frequent this old fashioned candy-soda fountain each time we travel to Boise, also to the next door old time toy store-same owners. Can't go wrong with the Caramel coke and white chocolate drizzled caramel corn. Everything from the decorations to the staff, to the treats are wonderfully delightful.

Goodys is the best old fashion soda fountain & candy store! We have to stop every time we are in town. No matter what your sweet tooth craves -- ice cream, candy, fresh made caramel corn you will be amazed how wonderful everything is.

They have a huge variety of candy for every sweet tooth and good ice cream, sodas and shakes. A great place to take children if you don't mind them gettin a sugar high.

It is an old time family owned ice cream and candy parlor. Nice stop for families. The ice cream was good but not exceptional. Loved the smell of the homemade waffle cones. Also had a nice selection of hand puppets.

Came with friends for some homemade ice cream. Great location for families. Ice cream was average, I should have have an Italian Soda, a frozen choco-banana, or the homemade Carmel Corn instead.

This is a very quaint old-fashioned homemade ice cream shop. They offer some desserts as well as old-fashioned candy. The ice cream and Caramel corn was really good. Also, we got there Friday night and a live band some playing outside!

Stopped by this quaint ice cream shop while overnighting in Boise. The smell was phenomenal but as far as anything totally amazing, it was just as good as most ice cream shops. Cute downtown area though... live music, restaurants, shops...fun place!

From the moment you walk in the sweet aroma of candy knocks you out. They have a wide selection of candies, chocolates, ice cream, and shakes. The location in quaint Hyde Park is great. The white chocolate Oreos are awesome! The kids had ice cream and loved it. Great place, great atmosphere, and great sweets.
