Cottage of Sweets in Carmel, CA is a wonderful place to visit. The building is adorable. The candy selection is excellent. Along with candy from outside the US - they make their own fudge. When in Carmel - definitely make a stop at the Cottage of Sweets!

We've been coming to Carmel for years and NO visit would be complete without stopping in to grab some of the sweets offered here. They seem to have everything you could imagine. And they carry a very large variety if English imports ! Our favorites are the raspberry jelly sticks!!!!

Cottage of Sweets has a great selection of imported chocolates, some of which you can't even find in many US stores! They also have a wide variety of chocolate and chocolate covered deserts. If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place for you!
