What is there NOT to love about Sweet Pete’s? From the moment you walk in, you’re spellbound and amazed. From the whimsical atmosphere to the scrumptious candy and amazing toy store, you could lose a lot of time just wandering around looking at everything.

Talk about a little piece of heaven right in the heart of downtown! Right when you walk in you know you’re in for a real “treat”!! I took my 2 year-old to the Toddler Time and I was amazed by the beautiful decor! My son enjoyed watching the chocolate temper and then he was able to dip cookies in the chocolate and decorate them with candies! We also listened to a story about Curious George working in a Chocolate Factory! It was a great time!
The new Sweet Pete’s Shop downtown is amazing. You can wander through 2 floors of candy, watch some actually being made, and enjoy ice cream and other delicious baked goods. There’s something for everyone to enjoy!
