Amazing ice cream, especially the salted caramel. Great Cubans too! One of the best values on the beach!

I had seen great reviews, but driving by this place looks like a low budget- quick stop. I am so glad we took a chance and went in. The Cuban sandwich is to die for, and the service is exceptional. A++

This small restaurant offers a wide selection of ice cream, as well as burgers, tacos, and sandwiches. It is very conveniently located at the 8th Avenue beach access off of Gulf Blvd. It is one of the very few places that are close enough to the beach to walk in and get a cold treat, drink, or lunch and then...

We drove a little further south on a whim and found this sweet local beach spot just before sundown. If you blink, you could miss it by sight; however, your nose will certainly let you know you are close. Parking is tight (in the back) but is well worth it. We shared a cuban (available in a couple sizes) and... More

We drove here, but it is so convienient to pop in here right off of the beach. Quirky spot with good food. We all tried cubano sandwiches and ended with ice cream. It would be easy to split a sandwich. They are large but very tastely. Ice cream was excellent. Small outdoor seating area but nice.

This little place doesn't look like much, but the staff was very friendly and the food was delicious! I had my first hot-pressed Cuban sandwich and it was delicious! We ate outside and while the place needs some upkeep, it actually added to the charm. While eating, we saw another employee, possibly the owner, unloading fresh vegetables, meat, and cheese... More

Amazing ice cream homemade in the store! Very patient customer service and as many samples of ice cream as you want! Very affordable and high quality! We will definitely be back again!

Girlfriend and I went here for lunch...it took us over 20 minutes to find an open parking spot. The parking on Indian Rocks Beach is a nightmare on weekends. I can't blame the restaurant for their limited parking though, because the whole side of the road along the beach is like this. On the bright side, if you are already... More

Friendly service but ice cream, was like water. If we want to have ice cream it should be super rich and creamy, this was more like ice milk with little flavor. Change ice cream brands ! Otherwise recommended
