The best!

We were in the area for our family reunion, and the fact that we found a Handel's was the icing on the cake! Our reunion normally takes place in Ohio, and we would always make our annual trip to Handel's. The ice cream was perfect, as expected. The variety of flavors was even better! Even though... read more

Handel's has been in Bonita Springs for a little more than two years and is a great place to stop for homemade ice cream. All ice cream is made on premises. It is delicious. There are many flavors to choose from and they change regularly. There are specials so watch for them. Thursdays until 3 (it might be all day,... More

This is coming from someone that has ice cream every night. Go for the brownie sundae. One of my main stays. I think one of the best places on Bonita Enjoy

We just stopped by HANDELS yesterday. There is a reason they made top 10 in the world list. It was amazing. I read one review that said 'lacking flavor'. Either they were a group of smokers, or their family owns a competing ice cream shop. Nothing could be farther from the truth. We had 3 generations with us. We could... More

Every visit to Handel's is a good visit. Staff are friendly, ice cream is delicious and the price is very reasonable. I just wish the calorie count was zero. Therefore I can only give it a 9.9 out of 10. Handel's, love your ice cream. Wish you would expand to Canada.

Having such a high rating, I was disappointed. Portion size was generous. Flavor left something to be desired. We all had a different flavor and we all agreed, lacking flavor and richness.

Best ice cream I have had in a long time! The prices are very reasonable and they do not disappoint on portion size. If in the area you should definitely give it a try.

We were amazed at the generous portion size--we paid less than $4 for a small dish with 3 choices of flavors--a great deal.--and the ice cream was delicious.

A friend who lives in this area said we needed to go here for THE BEST ice cream. There is an article from National Geographic posted in the shop listing this as one of the ten best ice cream shops in the world. I don't know if I'd go that far, but what I had was excellent, and everyone else... More
