Cute little ice cream/candy place....it's like stepping back in time at a malt shop... bummed about no toppings for ice cream but we'll worth a visit

always a must-stop place for us, delicious ice cream and coffee. They make the best hard- to- find butterscotch sundae!

Love this place! The assortment of chocolates, candies and a soda counter with milkshakes, etc. is fabulous. It has never been so crowded that you couldn't be taken care of. Would highly recommend and it's a good place to chill for a little while you walk around the Strand.

This mainstay of the Strand in Galveston is the mecca for history buffs particularly those with a sweet tooth! It's a fabulous, non-glitzy emporium of the yummy past, and not to be missed if you are in Galveston!

The Duck Tour driver told us about this gem. We made it to a taffy pulling and the maker even tosses warm wrapped taffy to the crowd. This taffy is amazing! Our kids each got soda from the soda fountain. This is a must do. We just placed an order for taffy to be delivered to Nebraska

You can watch while they make fresh peanut brittle. They carry a lot of hard to find candies and a BIG selection of sugar free items. La King's location in an old store front on the Strand only makes things better!!

Stopped in while visiting Galveston and shopping along the strand. It was quite busy but there were plenty of helpful staff. I bought some of their fudge. It was very tasty. I also bought ice cream for everyone including my two Airedales. The boy dipping my ice cream said he had never had anyone purchase ice cream for their dogs!... More
