Owner and Englishwoman Fiona Frie took a break from her medical career to open this Union Square outpost for candy lovers (see, doctor’s approve!). With a focus on English and Scottish confections, Fiona’s Sweetshoppe houses jars of interesting goodies such as Old Fashioned Humbugs, Gobstopping Gingers, Cola Cubes, Chocolate Limes, and imported candy bars galore. This place is a must for those adventurous candy tasters, as many treats are not usually found in the U.S.
What to get: Bon Bons, English caramels, chocolate eclairs, Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut, and Strawberry Foam.
Fiona’s Sweetshoppe, Sutter Street (between Claude Lane and Kearny Street), San Francisco; 415-399-9992.
