The location of this place isn't the best as it is a little hard to find and not well marked with signs, but it is worth the search. The ice cream is delicious, the service was great, and the decor is beachy and light.

The honey bourbon ice cream is phenomenal, but the other ice cream flavours are no slouch either. It's a hidden gem!!

When visiting Siesta Key, I always stop in at Capt. Curt's and The Orange Octopus. The workers at the Orange Octopus are very pleasant and the prices are reasonable. Always have 2 scoops and so far my favorite are Kentucky Bourbon and Cookies and Cream....More

I love getting ice cream here! They've got a fair amount to choose from. My favorites so far have been the Kentucky Bourbon Honey Pecan and the Key Lime Pie which is tangy with chunks of graham cracker crust. They've got tables inside and a...More

This is the best ice cream ever. Came here 3 times in a week. They seem to fill the cone with ice cream, so you get more than just the scoop on top of the cone. Chocolate peanut butter is the best

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.
