Best Candyshop Decor - 2007
This new shop from the owners of the famed Miette Patisserie in the Ferry Plaza features candies sourced from all over the world, from tiny Tootsie Rolls at 10 cents each to lavish Charles Chocolate boxes made of chocolate and filled with sweets for $45. But the real draw is the art of display. The place is tender yet dazzling. There are 72 glass jars shelved behind the counter, each filled with different colorful candies. A big light-green wooden table placed in the glass-paned front window has tabletop offerings that change with the season, often holiday-themed. The deco floral wallpaper, in shades of rose and cream, is set off by pale-green-painted wood wainscotting and topiary trees studded with fat sugared gumdrops. The bold round hot-pink table in the center of the shop is freighted with chocolate bars and elegant glass containers filled with malted-milk balls in a variety of pastel shades. Wilhelmina Wonka did a swell job here.
