About The Goldenrod

We are a candy store, homemade ice cream shop and restaurant, located in the heart of Short Sands Beach since 1896. Home of the mouth watering sensations Goldenrod Kisses, our own salt water taffy made in full view of spectators.

As the sweet aroma of boiling sugar and molasses fills the air, one bite of a Goldenrod Kiss will take you back to a time when things were simpler. Join us for breakfast, lunch or dinner in our dining room or at our marble soda fountain. We have a large selection of sandwiches, salads and daily specials, all complimented by our desserts made with our own ice cream.

Come on down, eat and have fun watching the kisses, fudge and other candies being made.
