We ventured to Goody's from our airBnB as it was walking distance. Goody's is popular with the locals. They have sweets gator plus stuffed animals and, of course, ice cream. There is seating inside and out. At times the line can get quite long to...get your order in (which we witnessed as we enjoyed our choice). We split a Banana Split and it hit the spot. The size of the Banana Split was small in our opinion compared to our favorite place. Go if you have the chance; it gets you into a different neighborhood plus you get to go to a local favorite,More

A good old-fashioned candy store. Fresh dipped ice cream cones the size of softballs, delicious carmel corn. Real lemon drops. Amazing chocolates. I could go on, but just go. In the heart of Hyde Park.

Always a delight when we visit Boise’s North End. First we walk up and down N 13th St, then settle into Goody’s for ice cream and coffee, and to look over our purchases!

What a nice treat after our low key evening of appetizers/drinks. Busy place but very efficient service and amazing flavors of ice cream.

This is one of what will have to be two reviews because I went there for candy and will definitely have to go back for ice cream. I had just eaten dinner and was too full and so got candy to go. The smell as...you enter is very tantalizing!!! I was greeted as I walked in the door very pleasantly and was full of questions about the candy and the young lady answered them all very patiently. I ordered three pieces and ate them later over a course of a couple of days and was very happy with the texture and the flavor. It is always a treat to find good chocolates. I will be going back for sure. This is a place you should definitely stop at to enjoy the smells, the friendliness and the treats. There are also cute stuffed animals as you walk in the door.More

We are always looking for great ice cream places and Goody’s did not disappoint. Staff was very friendly and we liked that they brought the ice cream out to us after we ordered and paid - and brought glasses of water!

We stopped in for a root beer float. This is a really cute candy/coffee/ice cream store that smells delicious as soon as you walk in. They do root beer floats the old-fashioned way—with syrup, soda water and ice cream. It was really good. There’s lots...of seating inside and out. The servers are friendly and efficient.More

Tried to go to a downtown ice cream shop, but didn’t want to stand in line for 30 minutes. So I drove 5 minutes to Goody’s and was attended to immediately at this great ice cream shop in the beautiful North End. Not as many...flavors as elsewhere, but local and delicious. And plenty of other sweets: chocolates, candies, sodas, and caramel corn. Forget downtown; drive an extra five.More

I am sorry I missed Goody's on my first visit to Boise. The place is awesome and classic. The people working were very nice. I got a malt and it was perfect. I'll be back!
