Lofty Pursuits was named “one of the best soda fountains in the country,” by The New York Times and is one of the country’s few sweet shops where the lost art of Victorian candy making comes to life.

Lofty Pursuits opened in 1993 as a small skill toy store. Over the years, the product lines expanded, and every time Lofty Pursuits outgrew an old location and moved, something major was added. First, it was board games and general toys, then a full-service soda fountain and candy making, most recently it has been a full kitchen to do a daily brunch, and to make more candy. Lofty Pursuits has been the set for film, a location that preserves lost skills like Victorian Candy Making and a place where you can find a smile, when you need it, when you want it, and even when you are not looking for it. So come in, enjoy our collections of odd things that should be preserved, have brunch, watch us make candy and taste hard candies when they are warm. See us make candy canes, pull out a board game and sit back and play for a bit. Not everything in life should be rushed, but everything should make you happy. Lofty Pursuits, your happy place in Tallahassee.
