There's a Good Reason for the Long Lines!

My husband and I are not huge ice cream hounds. But the friend we stay with is, and so we ventured to the Royal Scoop for a treat one night. The lines and crowds are always present during high season but don't let that deter you. It moves along quite nicely and allows for some good people... read more

This place is not easy to find, but worth looking for. If you are at Bonita Beach or Barefoot Beach you are less than 5 minutes away. The ice cream is crazy good. There are a few picnic tables outside and seating inside. We stayed close by and biked over and it is a great area for a bike ride.... More

We went to both Handel's and Royal Scoop the week we were in Bonita Springs as we heard good things about both. I will give my opinion on both. Royal Scoop has obviously been there a while and it looks like it's doing extremely well, considering they have apparently purchased lots next door for parking. The place was a total... More

Wonderful ice cream in a variety of flavors. Kids will love the cow chairs. A little pricey but worth it.

This is definitely a must visit for ice cream and sundaes. There are a number of flavors to choose from and the sundae selections and possible combinations are numerous. The line WILL be long especially in season. However it moves quickly and it is worth the wait. They even make their own homemade hot fudge!

A quick dessert run to satisfy the group sweet tooth led us to visit this establishment. The sheer number of flavors is overwhelming but ensures that there is something for all tastes. I recommend the "crushed Reese's cup sundae." The peanut butter drizzle is very toothsome. Not many places offer waffle bowls but they do here. Expect a line because... More

Friendly, always very busy, and for very good reason! The ice-cream is the best. Price is right, scoops are big, and you will find your favorite flavor. You can also get a light meal.

Best ice cream in Southwest Florida. Many, many choices and the lines can get long but they move you through in good time. Well worth it for sure.

We chose the lunch hour to enjoy less crowded conditions and were handsomely rewarded as our party of 12 celebrated a 50th Anniversary. The soup selection was great and my favorite is the mushroom or New England Chowder.Everyone had the best ice cream made on-site but the Best Buy is definitely a banana split with three generous scoops of nsa...
