Description: We're an old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream parlor​, candy store, and coffee shop. We make all of our own Purity ice cream, the first manufacturer of ice cream in Texas. You can watch salt water taffy being made, which is just one of the things we're known for.

This was our first stop in the Strand. We witnessed the staff making fresh taffy, and what an experience! They also threw out candy to everyone watching. Kids loved that part. The ice cream was very creamy and delicious! The ambiance fits perfectly with the old time ice cream parlor feel. They also sell lots of different kinds of candy, chocolate, coffees, and drinks. Will definitely return for dessert on our next visit!

I always enjoy to see how they make their taffy. I ordered the caramel white frappe. It was delicious.

Good experience, friendly workers, great home made candy, ice cream, and under rated coffee! Worth stopping by when in G-town

LA King's has the most amazing salt water taffy around! Get there early to watch the making of the taffy and stay until the end for a free piece! Also don't miss out on the ice cream! The praline is one of my favorites! This is always a go to place for us when visiting G-town!!!

Great selection on chocolates, gummy candies, taffy and ice cream!
The place was packed but we managed to come away with bags of candy. The fruit slices taste a little off, but the chocolates were awesome.
