I was in town visiting the area this weekend and it was extremely hot so was looking for a cool treat. This was recommended by a local who raved about it so I was expecting to blown away. Although the sorbet I got was delicious it wasn't spectacular, the place could use a face lift and if you can never... More

I am so sorry we did not meet your expectations and blow you away. Our goal is to wow our customers taste buds with our homemade creations. We are a modest family run business aiming to bring creative flavors to Deland. Flavors like Maple Bacon, Krispy Kreme, Dark Chocolate Salted Toffee, Orange Ginger, etc. Customer Service is very important to... More

This ice cream is excellent. I love the pistaccio and my husband usually gets vanilla. It is rich and creamy and very good for the price. We always eat dessert here or stop by after the springs.

They make it from scratch - not from some can of ice cream base - but from real cream. And they create amazing and unique flavor combinations like "Super Hero, Crispy Cream Donut and Carmel Cheesecake!" But don't fear if you don't want to step into "Maple Bacon" land because they make some of the best good old chocolate, vanilla... More

We eat in downtown Deland at one of the nice restaurants every now and then and always politely decline our server's offer of dessert. This is because we wind up every meal with a walk over to the Sweet Spot. There really is no better ice cream to be found around this area. The folks that work there are super... More

We were in Deland for a week and were lucky enough to take our grandson to this fun little place 2 times! The owners are friendly and genuine, and the flavors are original an fun. My fav was the orange ginger ice cream, and my husband likes the Andes mint. Our grandson loved the "Hero's Trash Can" which is basically... More

After sitting in an all day conference I wanted a, sweet treat. We found this little gem after a quick look online. Everything they have is homemade they were open late even on Saturday. Staff was very eager to please and you could tell she genuinely liked her job. Met the owner while we were there. They weren't busy so... More

As recent transplants to DeLand from the D.C. area, we were eager to get acquainted with our new hometown. We first learned of Sweet Spot through TripAdvisor and it has become one of our favorite places in town. The people who work there are friendly. The ice cream is the best homemade that I have ever tasted and comes in... More

Amazing as usual. Clean and friendly and the homemade ice cream is incredible! Good selection of ice cream, frozen yogurt and gelato.

Sweet Spot has the best homemade ice cream in DeLand, in Volusia County, and probably within an even wider radius. Jimmy and Melissa are both exceptionally friendly and welcoming, and it's always a pleasant visit on all fronts. Having only tried something other than ice cream on one or two occasions and seeing pictures of all the cheesecakes and other... More

I had a wonderful chat with the owners, Melissa and Jimmy Brissey, while they made delicious looking ice cream. I couldn't wait to try some! I was actually there to order a specialty cake for a party for my sister and brother-in-law who had just gotten married. I have never really been an ice cream lover and now I know... More
