This is the best place I have found for ice-cream and specialty chocolates. The dark chocolate is AMAZING!!!! It is our regular stop when going to the cottage and home. The coffee is 10X better than Tims and no crazy line ups. Todd and Heather...are amazing people that are great promoters of Wiarton. We even came late once after Todd had just closed up. He opened up for us and our grandkids had the store to themselves and Todd's humor kept us all laughing. Thanks for being who you guys are. P.S. If you call ahead Heather will make you some "OutSTANding" butter tarts. Chocolate chips in them.More

I've been in this store many times and enjoy the chocolate. Too bad the server is so unfriendly, and not for the first time either. I felt unwelcome and won't be back again even though I live close by.

I’ve stopped into Northern Confections twice in the past week and can’t say enough positive things about this adorable little shop. I found it via a quick Google search for “coffee in Wiarton”. The road out front is blocked off, but who cares. Park your...car, walk a block and you’ll thank me. Their butter tarts are phenomenal! I dare you to eat just one. If you’re looking for a sweet coffee drink, try the maple latte (but I’m also a fan of the regular drip coffee as well). The rooftop patio is the PERFECT place to indulge in some ice cream or just put your feet up. Bonus: if you live in Simcoe, Grey or Bruce counties and happen to cycle, do yourself a favour and take Grey Rd 1 from Owen Sound to this shop. Even if you don’t live in those counties, just cycle yourself up here anyways.More

Northern Confections has an excellent variety of ice cream with generous servings. Options include cones and sundaes. Many other types of packaged chocolates and candies available. Lovely roof-top patio with ample seating facing the bay. One of our go-to places when visiting Wiarton.

This little place had the best coffee we had tasted. It puts Tim Hortons to shame. The chocolate was good too and the place is interesting to visit.

We stayed in Wiarton recently and recommend visiting Northern Confections for their amazing fudge! I've never liked fudge despite the many times I have tried it elsewhere, however Northern Confections has changed my mind! The owners, Todd and Heather, are exceptionally friendly, and also explained...that they still make fudge using the traditional process which is why theirs stands out from the rest. We also picked up chocolate covered liquorice and caramel corn, all of which is homemade. If you have a chance to stop by, be sure to do so!More

Dutch chocolate ice cream was delicious, but the best was definitely the crunchy cone with chocolate! Espresso coffee was perfectly prepared! Probably children’s paradise since they have a huge amount of candies!! I bought a banana muffin that I will try later! Staff was very...kind, and atmosphere unique. It was a great stop before taking the road back home! We will come back!!More

We stumbled on this coffee shop when all other food places failed- green door had a half hour wait and others were closed in October. The staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. Coffee and muffin was wonderful and weather so warm we were able...to eat on the patio.More

Stopped by for dessert after a busy day. Really wanted some maple candy but seems like it is only available seasonally. Got some treats to take home and felt like an old time confectionary store. Staff extremely friendly and informative to us non-locals.
