Got the cali burger with fries. The burger was seasoned great, tasted just like a backyard cook out. Plan to go back for dessert later the ice cream looked awesome.

Being ice cream junkies, we had to try Matthessen's - OMG. I will be dreaming about this place until our next trip to Key West. We brought home some fudge....to die for! The only problem I had was that the x-ray machine at the airport couldn't make out what it was so they had to take the box out of... More

We are big Ice Cream Fans! Toasted coconut ice cream is even Better than Kilwins! A winner! Hardy, fresh scoops on a waffle cone can't beat it!

The ice cream cone scoop was massive. A much better taste & price than the ice cream at Haagen Daaz.

We were here twice a day -- the cookies are the best. The ice cream is excellent (key lime sorbet :) Fudge is fantastic. We went here for breakfast one morning -- as they have fresh fruit smoothies as well. Indulge and splurge - you wont find better cookies or fudge in KW.

We ate here today and while they still have their regular menu we are really excited that the new owners have daily specials. We had delicious blackened Mahi tacos. The fish was really fresh and there was a slaw inside that was so good. My only complaint is that I wanted more of the slaw but I was too busy... More

Just had a burger and what used to be one of the better burgers in town has changed. The buns used to be on a great hardroll type of bun but yesterdays burger was on a regular soft bun. Now they are pretty much like any other burger in town. Guess they have new owners and this is one of... More

Updated and clean ice cream establishment. The ice cream tastes better, costs less, and you get more than at Haagan Dazs......so we went twice!

I hate this place because it is SO good. Service and treats are amazing. We have not tried the food as the ice cream has called to us every time. The service is GREAT! The atmosphere is cute. I want to stop everyday for ice cream, but thats not good for my waist. Cookies and Ice Cream, yum.

The HUGE cookies at this place will keep calling your name until you go back again and again. My daughter (19) even found herself sleep eating the other half of her sugar cookie in the middle of the night! Ha! Over our various visits we had choc chip, peanut butter w/ chocolate slathered over the top, sugar & chocolate chip... More
