After a day of hot dogs and fried seafood at Coney Island, you may just want Tums and a nap on the beach - or you may be in the mood for something sweet. If you’re the kind of person who knows that desserts go to a different part of the stomach than other types of food, go to William’s Candy Shop. This small, old-school spot on Surf Ave is full of colorful cotton candy, various types of candy apples, and soft serve ice cream.
