Awesome viewing... children love it!

I took my daughter to Suga while we were visiting Melbourne and she absolutely loved it. She sat for ages watching them work making lollies. This place is worth a visit!

Kids love talking with the friendly staff and watching them make lollies. Great variety of boiled sweets made on the premises.

When we visit family in Melbourne, we always stop here. The candy-making demonstration is interesting. The candy itself is delicious. Friends back home enjoy the candies with "Melbourne" inside!

Loved watching them make the candy in the front window of the shop. I was just mesmerised by what they did. After they finished had to go in and buy 2 small lollipops for my grand children and also some cashew brittle for myself. They had lots of tiny jars of small lollies like we used to get at Darrell...

It's cool to see how they made their candies by hand.. However.. The taste of the candies are not that special.. I would not recommend people to buy a lot of their candies if you're looking forward to the taste of their candies.

Stopped by the Royal Arcade to see some candy making. The guys making the candy were very friendly and gave out free samples. The candy is a bit expensive. I think the smallest bag was around $6-7.

We went in this shop as part of our private walking tour. It's a small shop that makes candies right infront of you. Not only that, they can draw a tiny picture and write stuff (including your name) on the candies too. The staff was very friendly and accepted us in. We kept asking them questions about the candies and... More

This is a lovely little discovery a very small shop called Suga Confectionery in the Royal Arcade. It draws a crowd when the candy makers start to do their thing, they are masters and its really quite amazing what can be done with some sugar, water and glucose. They demonstrate how they put the lettering into the candy so their... More

Tiny Suga Confectionery in Royal Arcade draws a crowd when the candy makers don their work gloves and wrestle great slabs of hard candy into their trademark cut candy gems. We were fascinated by the process and completely hooked when they offered free samples oh the still warm candy we had just witnessed being made. Worth a trip!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
