There is nothing fancy about Wilton Candy Kitchen. It is a labor of love preserved by the current owners. Have a phosphate soda with some awesome ice cream. Then walk around the interior and look at the historic pictures of famous people who have visited...More

Such a cool place! The booths are incredible, as is most of the decor. Super friendly soda jerk, and very knowledgeable about the history. Great museum in the back. Don't just go there for the ice cream. 😁

This candy store and ice cream parlor is on the national historic register. It has an old fashion lunch counter but no longer serves lunches. No candy is made here. The shop owner was friendly. Wilton is a sleepy town amid vast fields.

Tried the go here in the middle of the day on a Saturday but they were closed. The sign on the door said they would reopen in the spring along with a sign to deliver packages to a nearby business.

I know it's a 100 year old man working there, but, seriously, waited 30 minutes for an ice cream. There were 4 people before us and we had to go. Another appointment. Disappointed.

Took our friends from San Francisco to see the Candy Kitchen after the Founder's Day parade. We thought we'd go in for an ice cream or some candy. I had to use the rest room and our friend wanted to rinse off his hands. While...More

A visit to the Wilton Candy Kitchen is a trip back in time! The ice cream is all homemade by the owner, and you will usually find both the owner and his wife at the Kitchen! He also makes some good homemade candy! The old-fashioned...More
