“Old fashioned sweet shop”
Review of Young's

Young's
Ranked #89 of 317 Restaurants in Redwood City
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 July 2016

This establishment was once a drug store, and the existing sweet shop is reminiscent of that. No counter to eat at, but a selection of candy from truffles to bulk to pre-packaged. There is also an ice cream section with some old-fashioned flavors. Always a cheery young staff. Great place to stop after the theatre and it is open later than some competitors.

Walking in is like stepping back in time. This is an old-time Candy Store/Ice Cream stand. Lots and lots to choose from. The staff is very friendly and was willing and ready to help with suggestions. Not a great place to visit on a diet. There appears to be something for everyone available.

If you want ice cream in cones and are downtown Redwood City, this is the place. It is quite expensive, though. They are trying to be a candy/gifty/ice cream store, so it's a little schizophrenic when you walk in.
The ice cream is good, but there's not too many places to sit. They have a ton of little chatchkies to sell, so the store is cramped. If they want to be an ice cream store, then clear out all the stuff in the way and do it. A bar to sit and enjoy sodas and cones would be fun. Right now, it's get ice cream and leave.

Whether it's ice cream or candy your crave, you will satisfy your sweet tooth at Young's. This is a great place for little kids, for a snack while on a date, or as a drop-in when out for a walk.

The ice cream is hiding behind a rainbow palace of candy and stuffed toys, but worth the journey. The cake cones risk being stale, so go with sugar or a cup.
