For special occasions that call for sweet treats or those moments when only sugar and coca will do, Austin has no lack of options for candies and chocolates.
Here are the city’s best sweets shops, offering to-go, pickup, and delivery orders for truffles, gummies, taffy, pralines, and other sugary goods. There are high-end chocolate stores like oh-so-stylish and charming Maggie Louise Confections, truffle madness at Delysia Chocolatier, the truest candy wonderland over at Big Top Candy Shop, the quirky Toy Joy, and others.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each shop is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the shops themselves.

A number of Austin restaurants have resumed dine-in service. That level of service offered is indicated on each map point. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
