Great little Ice Cream Place!

We stopped after Lunch for a scoop of Vanilla (me) and Salted Caramel Chocolate (my spouse) Outstanding, and clean we sat outside to enjoy the day. Before finishing our downtown stroll

Very good homemade ice cream and nice service. We had the chocolate mint, cookie dough, and LEMON RASPBERRY (wow!) We missed out the first night in town because of a late dinner. They close at 10 so get there before!

We LOVE Sweet Spot! The owners are always smiling and welcoming of each customer and always creative with amazing flavors. The small town feel is evident in Sweet Spot, as the family owned ice cream shop LOVES to see families coming back again and again to try Melissa's newest creations! When you stop in, be sure and ask if there's... More

We eat at Bellini's frequently but never really noticed the Sweet Spot next door until a friend mentioned the place. The two flavors of ice cream that we tried were very good (chocolate rum truffle and trash can). I can see why one reviewer said that the place could use an update but it was clean and the staff was... More

This place has delish Ice cream but the little gal behind the counter was not so sweet. Not to mention this shop needs some updating. I enjoyed my ice cream walking around town instead of having a seat inside. I'll try other spots before returning here again in the future.

My family enjoys our visits to the Sweet Spots, especially my two grandsons. The ice cream is to die for. I have never had any I didn't like. My favorite is chocolate salted Carmel. Chocolate with sprinkles. The Staff is always very helpful and friendly. This is a must stop.

Although I'm in DeLand a lot, I don't live in DeLand so didn't know about this little gem until I specifically looked for ice cream places. It's a small, family owned place, right off Woodland Blvd, the main drag. They have several flavors of ice cream available, everything from Vanilla to Coffee, to Oreo, with several toppings available as well.... More

Ice cream is always homemade and delicious. Family owned business. After visiting one time, the owners always remembered us and greeted us like the locals we've become. Can't ask for a friendlier place to visit!

I got dessert with my family. My ice cream was tasty and my dad said the maple bacon ice cream was also good. I've had a couple of their smoothies and they've all tasted great.
