What is the "C" in
The C Shop?


The "C" in C Shop stands for many things that start with "C" or rhyme with "sea".

We're a candy shop and cafe. We make carmelcorn, cotton candy, cheesecorn, carmel apples, chocolate, snow cones and marshmallow sea snakes. We also have coffee, cookies, cheese pizza, and cinnamon rolls. In the front kitchen window, you can see our candymakers making your favorite treats in copper kettles by the sea.

How many more things can you think of that begin with "C" or rhyme with "sea"? Let us know the next time you see us!

For a more complete history of the name and how The C Shop came to be, see Patricia's story.


We've got Spring Fever!

Sign up for our email newsletters and be in the loop

Stay up to date with C Shop happenings and special announcements by joining our mailing list. We're going to be rolling out some special treats for Birch Bay locals that you won't want to miss out on.

Don't worry! We won't share your email with anyone nor will we send out more than one email per week during our high season and much less the rest of the year.

Happy Mother's Day!

I know many of you have a tradition of sharing a C Shop cinnamon roll with your mother on Mother's Day so this year we're adding to mom's fun. The drivers and horses from Dan Cramer's Western Town will be at The C Shop giving carriage rides on Mother's Day Sunday from noon to 4pm. It's fun for all ages and abilities so bring mom and the grandkids to take a spin around the neighborhood. Check our Facebook page when you want the latest on what's happening.

Cramer's Carriage Rides

The Candy Shop and The Cafe are getting ready for another great season

Once we've gotten them made, we'll have some of our other candies online but we still have Peanut Butter Yumms, Daisy Mints, and a few Barnyard Animal sets. We can only ship to US addresses, but you can arrange to pick your items up at The Candy Shop. Just select the local pickup option on checkout and we'll send you an email when they're ready.

The Candy Shop and Cafe will re-open May 8th at 3pm!

C Shop Summer

The C Shop has something for everyone

From Jelly Belly beans to elegant filled bonbons, homemade marshmallow sea snakes to hand-molded chocolates, snow cones to hard ice cream cones, and cotton candy to carmel apples, The C Shop Candy Shop most certainly has a sweet to suit all tastes. Enjoy your treat while you chat with the candymakers as he or she makes our homemade carmel and peanut brittle in a copper candy kettle, pops corn in the gas-fired popper, and whips marshmallow and divinity into shape. Learn about our fascinating antique candy-making equipment that is used to make all of our goodies and, if your timing is just right, there's often a sample of fudge making its way outside just for you.

If you're in the mood for something more substantial, The C Shop Cafe & Pizzeria is ready to take your order. In the morning, you might want one of our famous cinnamon rolls or sticky buns with a cup of fresh-brewed coffee. Our bakers are baking up something delicious every morning, and Patrick roasts 100% Colombian beans to his own exacting specifications several times a week. Lunch could be a deli sandwich made to order on our home-baked bread. Or try salad and homemade clam chowder on the side or for a lighter bite. You are saving room for an afternoon snack of a banana split, sundae, milk shake, malt or ice cream cone, aren't you? It's just what you want to cool off on a warm day at the beach.

Don't forget pizza! We've worked hard to refine our recipes for our homemade dough, sauce, and freshly grated cheese blend, and have carefully selected high quality toppings. Choose from our signature pies or have your own favorite combination.
