The flavors were the most flavorful ice cream I have ever had. All made in house. The best ice cream I have ever had. Would come no matter what time of the day!

The home made / hand made ice cream here is the best I've had. The prices are reasonable. The service is fast and friendly. The Kentucky honey bourbon flavor is fantastic and a great example of the creativity of the flavors. You might even get...More

We have had ice cream at several of the places on the key. I rate this the best - they all have good ice cream but the staff is friendlier, more graceous and the prices are less.

Whenever we have out of town guests we're sure to introduce them to a tasty treat at Orange Octopus. So good! It's home-made ice-cream and dare I say, even better than Big Olaf on the other end of the key. Give it a try -...More

This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
