Tasty homemade ice cream; rich and creamy. Also came back the day we were leaving to try a chocolate chip cookie fresh from the oven. Yum!

This place makes a range of excellent looking sweet fare on the premises. My husband and I had ice cream there twice. The selections were tasty and the portions were generous. There is very limited seating...but you can take your choice out to enjoy while people watching on Duval Street.

A cool, tart, sweet treat. Just pure deliciousness conveniently on a stick.
