The place to go in the middle of siesta key near Captain Curt's. Try the gator feet or superman. They are all good.

Loved all the flavors of their ice cream, and coffee choices were great too. Nice to have this close by within walking distance of our resort. Gets very busy at night with long lines out the door.

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.
