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

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.

My husband had the cherry soda and it was delicious. I had the chocolate/peanut butter ice cream. Everything is clean but there is the strongest odor in the building. Not sure what it is but I had to eat outside. I thought that perhaps it was some type of cleaning solution but it was apparent each time we walked into... More

I was excited that they offered a NY Egg Cream but, unfortunately, it was not quite as good as I was expecting. They serve Blue Bell Ice Cream which, of course, is delicious.

Nice selection of gifts, t-shirts, and hand-dipped ice cream. Enjoyed browsing the merchandise and talking with the staff.
