The place is clean bright and cheerful. The prices are cheap. They have about twenty yummy Flavors to choose from. The young lady at the counter let us sample as many flavors as we wanted and was so sweet during our "decision" process. I got the mayan chocolate. Just wonderful with a little kick of cayenne pepper. Perfect!

16 homemade flavors make it difficult to choose in this small, out-of-the way ice cream shop in downtown Deland. The ice cream is delicious with some very interesting flavors to enjoy in a cup or cone (three sizes here with a large and small waffle cone). The staff is welcoming with an encouragement to sample as many flavors as you... More

My husband and I have been coming to The Sweet Spot since they opened, and it is the definition of a family-owned place. They are unfailingly gracious and welcome feedback from everyone (you can even participate in Facebook contests every week to create a new flavor). I've had them cater an ice cream event at work for several hundred people,... More

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

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

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
