Olympia Candy Kitchen in Goshen, Indiana

When Greek immigrant Nicholas Paflas wanted his new Hoosier neighbors to know that his confectionary was tip top, he called it Olympia Candy. The name evoked Mount Olympus—the highest peak in Goshen, Indiana, that Paflas’ shop was simply divine.

One hundred years later, Olympia Candy Kitchen remains a shrine to sweetness. Inside, elegant candy cases imported from Europe display their delicious wares for careful inspection. Comfy wooden benches—installed during the 1920s when a dining area was added to the original foundation—invite patrons to sit back and snack. The high tin ceiling dates from 1912—the year during which this sugary heaven opened for business.
