Bruce’s Candy Kitchen in Cannon Beach

Seaside Sweets in Cannon Beach at Bruce’s Candy Kitchen

It’s an age-old Oregon tradition—visit the coast, try the taffy. Bruce’s Candy Kitchen, which has locations in Seaside and Cannon Beach, has been serving up the sweet treat since 1963. From humble beginnings—eight taffy flavors and twelve hand-dipped chocolates—the candy store has expanded to offer hundreds of delicacies. Look for the pink-and-white striped storefront—Bruce’s family is waiting for you.

Bruce's Candy Kitchen has been family-owned and operated for five generations. Sue Truax and her two daughters, Kelli and Toni, manage the Cannon Beach and Seaside locations.
The original taffy puller, built in 1904, is still in use today.
After it's been pulled, Brian Taylor folds the taffy several times to form a shape that can fit in the wrapping machine.
Kelli Taylor dips chocolate in more chocolate for a double layered treat.

Visitors are always encouraged to stop by and watch the taffy-making process, but Taylor suggests calling ahead to ensure it’s happening. Besides sweets, Bruce’s Candy Kitchen also sells a variety of baking accessories and toys. Learn more about Bruce’s Candy Kitchen.
