Great ice cream in a friendly and clean spot.

It is always a pleasure to go to Sweet Spot for ice cream. The staff is always extremely friendly and helpful and the ice cream is delicious. The key lime pie ice cream is my favorite (it has a key lime pie mixed into it), but they don't always have it so I've been able to try many other flavors,... read more

We stopped in as we were passing through. Everyone enjoyed what they had. Was very impressed that everything was homemade-even the toffee in my ice cream.

Clean place, and the employee who helped me was very friendly. I came here specifically to try some of the many dessert items I saw mentioned in other reviews here, but they didn't have any. I learned they don't have those items on hand all the time, but just every now and then. I got a sorbet instead, and it... More

I want to first and foremost apologize that you didn't have an outstanding experience. It sounds like you came in to try one of our scrumptious desserts (cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc.) and we didn't have any available... for this we are truly sorry. We make everything in house from scratch and when we're out unfortunately we're out. We are also... More

Another true family business serving the best homemade ice cream they can make. Clean, comfortable place to sit and enjoy. Perfect for families. Excellent ice cream.

Always a great pick with a wide variety of choices. Peppercorn Marscapone, Lemon Sorbet, Goat Cheese and Raw Honey, never a dull experience!

I admit I use tripadvisor a lot now as I look at the reviews to determine if a particular place is worth visiting. So with that said I had to try out Sweet Spot since it was rated #2 of places to eat in DeLand. No regrets! The ice cream is all hand made and delicious!! I sampled 3 flavors... More

Cupcakes were moist and full of flavor! Haven't tried their ice cream but many people I know rave about how delicious it is.

Unlike Carvel and Baskin & Robbins, Sweet Spot is a family owned "Small Town" ice cream shop where the people are friendly and the treats are fantastic. There are a variety of floats, sundaes and splits. You can get your treat in a cone or a cup. Everything at Sweet Spot is built from scratch. The ice cream, hot fudge,... More

The young lady who cashed us out loves turtles - as do I - she complimented my earrings and we were off to a great start! The gentleman who owns the store was there as well- very helpful with our daughter who must avoid dairy and gluten. We ordered Choc covered pretzels - dark choc champagne truffles and ice cream-...
