Located in Buffalo’s University Heights District, Parkside Candy is famous not only for its affordable ice-cream sundaes and delicious sandwiches, but also for its beautiful space. Open since 1927, the shop is filled with Victorian details—from intricate plaster moldings to mahogany display cases—making a visit here feel like a step back in time. As for the food, the sandwiches are perfect for a light lunch and the sundaes are hands down the best in Buffalo—order the brownie option for a chocolate overdose.
