We enjoyed sharing a two scoop cup of Chocolate Lovers Chocolate. It was very rich and flavorful. They also have candy and gifts for kids. There are a few chairs inside and they also have outside seating.

This is just a great place, very quaint. Right downtown East Haddam, walk to the river. Monday evenings in the summer is always nice, concert on the river, then walk to ice cream.

The sweet house/sweet shop has been around for a while, and I have been going to it for years. However, recently for the first time we tried it at its new location across the street and did not have a great experience. First of all,...More
