Fast and Friendly

Stopped in for a treat. Hand dipped Blue Bell ice cream. Hubhy had his coffee ice cream made into a shake and it was awesome! Kinda fun to look at the trinkets while enjoying a cup of ice cream.

The Blue Bell ice cream served here is very fresh; they must sell a lot of it. Good selection of flavors, and a comfortable atmosphere in which to eat it -- very Old Time. My one hesitation in recommending this place is that some of the young women who work here are rather short with customers -- they seem to... More

Old-fashioned soda fountain combined with gift store. Most reasonable prices in town. Ice cream and sweets were good and resonably prices. Dished up by polite young ladies.

We stopped in for ice cream, having learned that Blue Bell is quality ice cream in Florida (and maybe elsewhere?). I had pralines and cream, and my husband the almond fudge flavor. The shop also has kid candy and a few gift items available for sale, and benches outside for ice cream eaters!

We stop here to grab Blue Bell ice cream for a snack. They have fancier options but we tend to favor the single scoop in a sugar cone. They have about 12-15 flavors at a time for fair prices. Its nothing fancy but its reliable. They have seating inside and also a couple of benches outside. Quick and easy stop.... More

A great old timey ice cream shop. Owner has interesting long time Apalach. history. Cute store, some unique gifts. Oh, and good ice cream!

So the food is really good (ice cream, etc.) but the smell will have you moving to the door. It's a musty smell, like (for those of you who live in Florida or know houses around there) when a house has not been sprayed with insulation under the house and it rains. But it always seems to smell like that.... More

Our service was excellent and for good quality ice cream the price was good.Had 10+ flavors to choose from and sodas, sundays, malts, and shakes. Our service was good as well.

This was an excellent stop for a treat on our visit to the shops in Apalachicola. My daughter loved the cotton candy ice cream cone, and I enjoyed an old fashioned root beer float!

Friendly staff, been in here several times in a week. Always friendly, milk shakes to die for. Even have doggie cookies as you pay. My dog loves them. Thanks will be back in late December.
