Homemade ice cream that is truly delicious. Our grand daughter and her parents love it, and go here whenever they come to Sarasota.

Delectable ice cream - flavours are to die for, original and fun! Everyone will find something to their liking. The little quiet area outside on the corner of the building is really nice to sit in to enjoy the ice cream, too!

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

Good selection of premium ice cream at a reasonable price. It is kinda small though so you might have to eat your ice cream outside. The decor is pretty dated but the Ice Cream is terrific!

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.
