La King's Confectionery
We cordially invite you, your family, and friends to Galveston to experience the unique atmosphere of days gone by. - LaKings Confectionery
Welcome to La King's Confectionery, the old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream parlor, candy store, and coffee shop all in one!
This ice cream parlor serves as a true throwback to the 1920s when 'folks came out to enjoy a treat and visit', providing a modern-day sweet treat hangout for locals and guests to Galveston alike. Inside you will find a candy counter that never seems to end, complete with an old-school candy maker offering traditional sweets like Peanut and Peco Brittle, Divinity, Pecan Pralines, Hand-Dipped Chocolates, Fudge, and their famous Salt Water Taffy. You can even get a chance to watch a working ribbon candy line!
You will also be able to see a 1920s soda fountain, arcade games, and many original fixtures and pieces of equipment that date back to 1927 when Jimmy King began this endeavor. The building itself is almost 150 years old! When you step through the doors 'you are carried back 100 years', as you 'experience the atmosphere of days gone by!'.
