Wow, that seasonal line moved FAST!

We stopped in -again - for an ice cream last night.....after 8:00 pm, and the line went out the front door....didn't stop us from getting in line with everyone else....and the ice cream was wonderful, toppings de-lish, and the homemade waffle bowls wonderful as always. If you haven't been there... read more

Had the chance to try out this ice cream shop on my visit to Florida. Best ice cream and toppings. Homemade waffle cones makes the shop smell great! Family friendly place!

great homemade ice cream and waffle cones and bowls. Lots of delicious toppings. You have to watch the girls serving up your sundae as they might forget a topping or two. Be prepared to wait especially after sunset viewing.

This shop is all about ice cream. You can a huge variety of homemade ice in a great variety of ways (4 kinds of cones, 3 kinds of bowls, or a choice of take home containers. The shop is very small, but there is limited seating in and out (tables are not served). Wait persons are friendly despite the crush... More

Very friendly, local people own this special place. Lots of choices to please the familiar tastes, and more if you're in the mood for adventure! A "pick-me-up" or perfect dessert!! The unusual surprise is they make their own waffle cones - not available just anywhere!!

The ice cream is quite good, but I don't see how that justifies the price. We are regular working folk who are here year round and cannot afford to splurge like this.

We have been coming here for years. This is the only place that my husband will wait in line! The staff is friendly and works quickly. There is a large menu with weekly specials. This place has the largest selection of sugar free ice cream flavors. There is also a good selection of frozen yogurt. Great home made ice cream... More

There's a choice for everyone here. There is sugar free, Italian ice, frozen yogurts and fruit smoothies. There is something to please everyone. We go there because they have the most flavors in the area for sugar free ice cream! The regular ice cream is delicious and they make a mean sundae. There's always a line, so don't bother waiting...

Stopped in for a treat after meeting family to watch sunset. It was crowded but friendly servers moved the line along. Great ice cream enjoyed by all.

Went here Sunday afternoon. We were greeted promptly. The girls working were friendly. They have about 20 different flavors. We chose almond joy in a waffle cone. Portions were generous and the fresh waffle cone had a wonderful vanilla flavor. As far as price goes we thought it was very reasonable. We have paid a lot more for ice cream... More
