My children love the ice cream. My husband and I shared the hand made vanilla shake. Plenty to share. Kids loved the horse in the back, and also watching the taffy maker!

We arrived just in time to watch the taffy pull. Freshly made ice cream and delicious malts. Any kind of candy you want they make it. Clean atmosphere and phenomenal service.

This is a Galveston land mark. If you go to Galveston you must visit LA Kings. The ice cream, banana splits and Sunday are fantastic. There is lots of candy to choose from and fresh home made lemonade. It’s right out of history

We're an old-fashioned soda fountain, ice cream parlor​, candy store, and coffee shop. We make all of our own Purity ice cream, the first manufacturer of ice cream in Texas. You can watch salt water taffy being made, which is just one of the things we're known for.
