Great Stop, Felt Appreciated

Cute shop with plenty of parking. Good assortment of flavors and friendly customer service. We were made to feel very welcome and thanked more than once for stopping in. Ice cream was delicious and the price was comparable to other shops on the island. Will be back!

We stopped by on chance from a tour of Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island. This is a haven of coolness, with seating, in the heat of the day. Nice ice cream choices, huge servings, and a very pleasant owner. Very clean shark tank to keep the kids happy while you make your difficult choices!

Very good ice cream. Owners are very proud of business that they have built. Come at 7 pm for their shark feeding in their 700 gallon tank. Very neat.

Expected more from this store following reviews. Not close to Italian Ice Cream quality. I bet they use artifact colors and aroma. Pricewise standard US pricing. Nice people though.

He asked about our trip and answered some questions we had. he spent time telling the boys about the fish (shark,... More

Wonderful ice cream and very friendly owners. Easy to find in the strip mall on the main street close to the Walgreens. We stop here each year. Cute and clean shop. Love the Butter Pecan. However the flavors seem to change frequently. Very cool aquarium in the shop. Reasonable prices with large scoops.

We stopped by the Holy Cow after dinner recently and was glad we did. The store offers around 20 flavors and is very reasonably prices for the island.
