OUR HISTORY

The Olympia Candy Kitchen has been welcoming visitors for almost a century in its unchanged location in downtown Goshen, Indiana. Its tradition began in 1912 when Greek immigrant Nicholas Paflas began making his own hand-dipped chocolates and running the soda fountain...the old-world way, with friendly and courteous service.

It was at the Olympia Candy Kitchen where he met his wife, Leona. In 1920, the couple purchased the Candy Kitchen and added a diner. From its humble beginning, the Olympia Candy Kitchen has remained a family business, passed down from generation to generation. And it still welcomes visitors with its old-world charm.

From the red and white awning to the original soda fountain complete with high swivel stools, Olympia Candy Kitchen is reminiscent of the days when the world revolved a little slower. Virtually unchanged for 75 years - since its conversion into a diner and candy shop - the dark polished wooden booths, soda fountain and candy counter will take you back to an earlier time.

Whether you come visit us to taste some of our mouth-watering candies or to have lunch with some friends, its quaintness and warmth make the Olympia Candy Kitchen a great gathering place for people of any age. For breakfast or for lunch, you can count on great homemade food, all prepared while you wait. Try an olive burger with our homemade mayonnaise, a chocolate malt or a cherry phosphate, and you, too, might become a Candy Kitchen regular.

The candy counter is what made Olympia famous. Passing in and out of the diner, it is an attraction that is hard to walk by without at least a small purchase. It features seasonal selections, such as solid chocolate hearts at Valentine's Day and Peanut Butter Eggs at Easter, as well as a large supply of candy that is sold throughout the year. Among the most popular of the delicious confections and hand-dipped candies are the Turtles, which are made with our own home-made caramel, and our Chocolate-Covered Cherries, so popular that they were served at the Inaugural Balls of both President Reagan and President Bush.

Along with our chocolates, we have a great selection of gummy candies, Jelly Belly jelly beans, licorice, and other non-chocolate treats.

Whether you favor tantalizing turtles and toffee, chocolate-covered cherries and creams, or handmade candy canes, you can be assured Olympia Candy is still made from scratch.
