So yummy!

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.

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.

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

We went to both Handel's and Royal Scoop the week we were in Bonita Springs as we heard good things about both. Handel's is cleaner and newer location in a stripmall near the top of old 41 and south of Coconut Point. It was fairly busy when we went but the ice cream was top-notch. A couple dozen flavors that... More

Another great ice cream adventure. Really great product with a slightly smaller selection available but truly its a horse race with Royal Scoops. No lines and great staff. Reasonably priced cones and terrific quality

You might drive by it if you aren't looking carefully, but it's worth the U-turn. Fantastic, fresh flavours and creamy, truly, home-made deliciousness. My favourite: coconut almond fudge swirl. Coconut milk base flavoured vanilla, crunchy chunks of almond and swirls of fudge. Mmmmm.
