My husband and I came in here to get hot chocolate before a ghost tour on a cold night. We saw a sign for Belgian Hot Chocolate in the window and thought that sounded perfect. What we got was essentially Swiss Miss hot chocolate. I could even taste the grains in the drink. Really not very good. Total waste of... More

This place was busy (we came the weekend before Halloween) and pretty cramped. I think they should re work their tables to give more space for patrons. Aside from that, the candy was great! I got a milk chocolate salted caramel, hazelnut and raspberry cream and all were delicious! I will definitely be coming back again!

I had a red velvet cupcake from this place! It was awesome!! Not much seating inside, but you can sit outside on benches or on the steps leading to the old town hall. Cupcake was $6, but well worth every bite!

There is a cute little gift shop on one side, ice cream and drinks on the other. We enjoyed an "Aztec" hot chocolate on a chilly afternoon. The staff was very friendly, and service was quick.

After strolling around Salem, we were looking for something sweet and came across Maria's Sweet Somethings. They hand-dip their waffle cones into chocolate sauce and then put sprinkles on top. They also have frozen yogurt and a good variety of ice cream flavors. Service was great. We didn't feel rushed and we all enjoyed a nice treat.

I loved the decor with the orange lights and the ice cream was very good (my small Milky Way ice cream was huge). Unsolicited suggestion: little pre-wrapped chocolate witches in bags like the chocolate fish I saw in the store, and other witchy candy/cookies and ghosts that are wrapped and ready to go. I was looking everywhere for those as... More

Stopped for an ice cream. Nothing special really except the servers. Very nice. Not sure what kind of ice cream it was but I've had better and worse.
