I think my title says it all. What else do you need to know. For some reason my spouse love to workout and has a membership to the YMCA, every workout gadget you can think of that you can hide under a bed. She also own dozens of different workout videos that have cost us no telling how much. She... More

There is nothing like good old fashion ice cream. To make it even better they offer it in a waffle bowl too. Wow, what a combination!!! They also carry sugar free ice cream and sherbets along with all the specialty items, such as sundaes, concrete mixers, etc. So for great ice cream go to " A Better Scoop "

This is the best ice cream we have ever had. Only problem is we are in Englewood only for a few months during the winter...if we could fly in whenever we wanted, we would be there at least once a week for ice cream.

We went to this place every night that we were in Englewood, great service, delicious ice cream with a great variety of flavors. There was always a line, so it was a popular place!

We were searching for an ice cream store while on vacation on Manatee Key, just across the bridge from Englewood, Florida. What a treat--homemade ice cream in every flavor you can imagine, as well as many yogurts and sugar-free flavors. We especially liked the coconut. We were only sorry that we didn't discover it earlier in our vacation--we would have... More

Dear The Old Pot, I am sorry but there must be some misunderstanding. A sugar and cake cone are included in the price of your selected size. A plain home made waffle cone is an additional $.55 and the home made deco waffle cone is an additional $.80. All of our waffle cones are made in house daily, we take... More

Stopped here for some ice cream with my family. They had an assortment of different flavored. Gave out samples and it was good ice cream. I would go back.

It's sad when we like Breyers cherry vanilla better than an ice cream shop. I got say they do give you ALOT of sprinkles that fall off everywhere. The girls working working there were not particularly friendly or paying while we made our decisions- and there was nobody waiting behind us. No excuse for that. Two scoops is two small... More

Come here for dessert! Home made ice cream with flavours to please everyone. Our favourites are salty caramel, coffee, pralines and cream and cappuccino Kahlua. Can be very busy at night but everyone is friendly and willing to offer tips and advice.
