This ship is within walking distance of several inns downtown. We stopped in for a cup of hot chocolate on a cold windy afternoon. The staff was very friendly and the hot chocolate was delicious. There were several other treats that were very tempting, but we stuck with the hot chocolate.

We stopped in after dinner and got a few candies and a coffee. Staff was attentive and she even realized she had made our coffee incorrectly and fixed it before serving it. They have candies, fudge, ice cream and coffee. Some bottled beverages.

Nice setting in downtown Highlands where you can get ice cream or sweets and sit outside and enjoy the quaint little town.

Just about every time we're in Highlands, I stop by for a caramel apple. They are outstanding. They're not cheap, but definitely worth it!

4 of us stopped in for an ice cream cone. We all enjoyed it. I had basic single scoop chocolate on a waffle cone that was very good. The portions we fine for a snack. Everyone in our group liked what they ordered.

Love Kilwin's and always visit one when they are where I travel. They have a large selection of ice flavors and they are always delicious. Love their iced lattes. Made just right. Great place for a nice snack!

Great place for chocolates and ice cream. Fudge is excellent. We were there when they were making it. The smell was overwhelming.... The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because there were not enough sugar free or no sugar added options. Out of all the ice creams, there was only one no sugar added option.

Went on the way to some falls. Let me first say that the town is really nice. Fudge was buy two get one free. Total was around 20$ candy is by pound and is about 24-28$ ice cream is home made per the sign. Malt and milkshakes also. Pistachio was really good. Would go back

This place was a big hit with my family! The ice cream was lovely and creamy. We also took some chocolates home. Try the "Tongas!" They are so delicious. I can't wait for a chance to go back and treat myself again!
