I saw this place originally on the show The Profit, which showcased the original location. Since then, it's been transferred to a beautiful, old renovated three story Vicorian-like mansion in midtown which used to be the town's social club. If you want a memorable candy store experience unlike any other, you should make this one of your stops while you're... More

Last year we visited Sweet Pete's and loved it. This year we booked a tour, which was only $5 per person. I paid for it online, but got sick and couldn't make the day/time chosen. They graciously reschedule our tour. The tour included a "made your way" chocolate bar. The grandgirls loved it! It was quick and interesting enough to... More

Sweet Pete's started at a smaller venue a couple of years ago. Great place for locally made sweets (including natural and organic candies and baked treats) and ice cream as well as classes on candy making for the whole family. Always a treat to go to the candy cane making class at Christmastime! In the past year or two, Sweet... More

This is such a nice addition to Jacksonville. Parking is a bit of a bugger, but they're working on it. You really have to try this place out. The team is working hard & they deserve lots of success.

Kids of all ages love Sweet Pete's. I especially love the gluten free offerings in the sweet shop! The food in the restaurant is very good, as well, though not as many gluten free offerings in there. I loved the entire experience. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because the three times I've eaten there,... More

This place always has something going on for kids and adults! The candy apple restaurant inside is a bit pricey but the experience is great and the food is delicious! All the sweets are delicious, to me, they are better than their cousin peter brook!

Everything is colorful and tastefully decorated. There are so many choices for candies to purchase. Many made right onsite by the famous Pete- He actually looks a bit like Gene Wilder. LOL Great family atmosphere - an entire floor dedicated to chocolate candy as well as retro - throw back delicious Thursday candy. Great place to go on a first... More
