This is old fashioned sweets and ice cream making at its finest. Some of the oldest machinery in working condition still used. Homemade everything, from chocolate and caramel sauce to the ice cream and hand roasted nuts. You cannot go wrong here. The candy IS expensive but is simply divine. All made in house the old fashioned way and boxed... More

Folks when you can see the kettle, the prep table and smell the chocolate, caramel and so on....you know its real. There is no need for me to write more, go there.

I come from a place where we have the best chocolates in the world. So I thought. Now I know there is an equally fine place to buy such high quality sweets. And they are also cheaper than back at home. I bought a selection of cream and nut chocolates and each one was a moment in Heaven. I have... More

You will never be disappointed in the tastiness of the ice cream flavors or the price. But what you get is super awesome customer service! We always come here with our kids. We prefer to since we like supporting smaller business in our town. And we never leave feeling like we can't come back. It's simply a great place to... More

A great place to take my family. Both of my daughters wanted to try a soda from the counter. They both ordered the Cherry cokes. They were in awe watching the "soda jerk" make their treats. They are very good. They also have homemade chocolates and imported candies. As well as ice cream. It is definitely a step back in... More

The chocolate candy was to die for. They also have an ice cream type soda shop in it. They sale individual chocolates but it's easier to buy 1/2, 1, or 2 pound boxes. Assorted bags for a pound cost right about 20.00 with tax. Well worth the time and money so go to North Lacrosse. Parking is super easy and... More

Stopped here because it was next to Maid Rite. Blew our minds, ice cream, candy, home made candy, even booths to sit in and enjoy. Old-time place, not a brass & glass modern shop at all, more like a 60's malt shop. Friendly employees, dont miss it.

After our visit to Maid-Rite, it seemed only natural to stop next door at The Sweet Shop. We had an ice cream cone and a malt. Both were good. Lots of homemade chocolates. We were tempted, but didn't have any. A great stop on a hot afternoon.
