Williams Candy on Surf Avenue next to Nathan’s was one of the first Coney Island businesses to reopen after Sandy. The Mom-and-Pop candy shop owned by Peter Agrapides is open year-round and also has a mail order business. Winter hours are 11 am till 5 pm. When we went by on November 17th, they had cotton candy, candy apples and all of our favorite marshmallow-on-a-stick treats in the window. Try the one with the chocolate sprinkles!

But you’ll have to go next door to the dining room of Pete’s Clam Stop to find the candy treats. This week Williams Candy began a month-long, post-Sandy renovation. The interior was gutted and everything will be brand-new at 1318 Surf Avenue in time for Coney Island’s Opening Day, which is March 24th this year.

The window of Coney Island’s Williams Candy is hard to resist photographing. As for eating, we recommend the yummy Caramel Marshmallow Sticks with Toasted Coconut and Chocolate Caramel Marshmallow Sticks with Chocolate Sprinkles!

Williams is one of our favorite places in Coney Island. Their tiny shop is right next to Nathan’s Famous and is open year round. Hours are 9 am till 7 pm during the off season. The shop stays open late when Coney is in full swing. Williams also has a delicious looking website where you can order marshmallow sticks and other candy treats online.
