  • This place is truly breathtaking. Absolutely amazing experience. They have educational classes in candy making and even a restaurant (which I haven’t tried yet). I’m giving them a 3 star because we ordered cupcakes for a kid’s birthday party and they were really nasty. Even the kids didn’t like them. However, I would go again and just not buy cupcakes!
  • Part attraction, part candy shop, part ice cream parlor, and part restaurant. It’s a historic three story building (with elevator) that is decorated in a very whimsical fashion. The candy is not cheap, but it’s good, and packaged beautifully for gifts. Ice cream is great, but again, a bit more expensive than most ice cream places. But the ambiance is great. Did not have a chance to eat here, will have to come back. Would recommend.
  • I recently ordered a birthday gift and it arrived with a bag of jelly beans that had opened up during shipping. I had shared this with Paula, an employee I had been communicating with via email and she promptly addressed my concerns. Not only did Paula overnight ship a replacement product, she also provided some of the best customer service that I have ever received! She was a delight to work with and I am also happy to report that every single piece of candy was delicious! I am looking forward to future orders from Sweet Petes!
  • This place is basically the real life Willie wonka chocolate factory. This is a one stop shop that happens to be a mom and pop for all your foodie needs. It has everything from a restaurant, an ice cream parlor, a full bar and of course lots of candy. They even have lots of gift selection for love ones. Truly a magical experience. Prepare to spend a small fortune on candy however. It's not cheap and you won't be able to help yourself
  • Huge selection of hand made confections... We didn't intend to buy much. Had just left a great seafood meal. The temptations were too great. We bought a selection of several different items. Just a few of each. WOW! Better than I imagined. We'll be back before we leave Jacksonville.

Where to stay in Jacksonville

Accommodations are spread out across Jacksonville and mainly consist of large hotels. For a more scenic stay, consider a hotel on the riverfront or the coast. Beachside accommodations provide the added benefit of being in a much quieter and slower-paced part of the city, but you are farther away from the majority of the city's cultural attractions. If you are planning a longer stay, consider a vacation rental with a kitchen to help ease food costs. These rentals are frequently located in residential neighborhoods.
