Three Yelpers give Sugar & Co. a 3.5-star average:
- They carry a nice selection of candy. Three of us went in and we all found something that was new to us or a long forgotten favorite from our childhoods. – Ronda T., 3/18/10
- The first time I walked by and saw the window filled with rainbow colors and shapes, I felt the inner child in me get wide-eyed and giggly. – sarah o., 2/19/09
