A great place to stop for ice cream and a coffee on the road. They also sell fudge, popcorn, candied nuts and just above everything else sweet you can think of! The ice cream was a personal highlight and the portions are absolutely enormous!!!

The homemade tiger tiger ice cream was the best we ever tasted. We also tried the sponge toffee, peanut brittle, and deluxe chocolate popcorn. Everything was perfect

It has a good selection of candies and the ice cream was not shockingly priced with enough selection to suite most people. Friendly staff.

What a great candy shop! There seems to be something for everyone here. They have the best peanut brittle ever & carry various other nuts brittle. Varieties of popcorn with caramel, nuts, chocolate. Caramel apples are always a treat & of course, their many assortments of chocolates, fudge, ice cream/gelato & many other wonderful candy. They have added different products each time we shop there.

Decided to end my day with an ice cream so stopped in on way to Port Alberni. Was not disappointed. The young lady who served me talked me into trying Gelato for the first time and I was NOT disappointed. I got a child Sized cup and was allowed two different flavours!! It was refreshing and tasty!!

Imagine: gluten and lactose free ice cream in so many different flavors that tastes amazing! Coombs offers this! There is an array of ice creams prepared using a coconut milk base that are creamy and delicious! The mango ice cream is a great choice! This is a fantastic stop on your way to Tofino! Your kids will love it!

Worst selection and worst ice cream ever!
Nothing with nuts, no Java chip… nothing good at all. The girl handed me a cone, and the ice cream was already sloppy, wet and melted.
Staff was nice enough but I’ll never go there again for anything. Yuk

Top class. Clean, friendly staff, excellent chocolates and ice cream. It appears they make all their products. Good vibes. Close to a hike up the "lookout" and the "hole in the wall"

This Candy & Ice cream shop is a hidden gem in Port Alberni. Everything is made from scratch with TLC! It’s rare to find a business that’s owned and operated independently, and puts so much care into creating such wonderful treats for all to enjoy.
During the holidays, every year you can even go down for complimentary, bottomless, in house made hot chocolate, and dip fudge into the chocolate fountain! FUN 🤩
