2020: Sadly Dolle’s is closed and will be demolished. 🙁
Original 2009 Posting (one of the very first here on Retro Roadmap!)
Since 1927 Dolles has anchored the corner of the boardwalk and Rehoboth Avenue, a can’t miss sight with their the landmark orange sign.
Underneath that sign they make from scratch delicious fudge, using real butter and cream, salt water taffy, and caramel corn cooking it in big copper pots. The original store blew down in the famous 1962 storm and when it was rebuilt they put up the now iconic sign, which is repainted every season.
Step up to the window and order what you like, then step back and admire how the bright orange contrasts with the deep blue sky, or acts as a beacon on a cloudy day, as if to remind us that fun can still be had at the beach when the weather is less than perfect!
