Oliver’s Candies is a quaint chocolate & ice cream shop. Tasted some samples of the local “sponge candy”. Not a fan, but glad I could sample some without purchasing. The homemade ice cream was a fantastic treat!

Visited this shop as we are retired chocolatiers. The chocolate is made from beans and the selections are numerous. The caramels are chewy and milk and dark chocolates are creamy. They offer hard candies and ice cream. All we tasted and bought was wonderful

Every time we are in Batavia we make a point to stop at Oliver's. A huge selection of handmade candy, treats and ice cream. Prices are reasonable.

Their ice cream is very, very good. The Peanut Butter Sundae is excellent! Candy selection is good but a bit pricey.

Great candy. Direct, helpful staff. Super clean. The chocolate covered sponge toffee is amazing. The miracle is that all their salt water taffy is fresh - fillings were safe.
