I had my first freeze there. Piña coloda with coconut ice cream. So refreshing and yummy. I came again to enjoy the tropical treat on the scorching hot day.

Mint chocolate chunk and pistachio. Enough said!!! Homemade ice cream, great favors, including some local inspired ones like key lime pie and guana, a tropical fruit.

Seriously, 15 minutes in the hot sun with 3 hungry boys...we finally get there and it's GONE. No directions to where, no signage. What a disappointment. 😁

We went there multiple days, it was REALLY fresh= very "key-lime" delicious! Plenty of tables to sit and enjoy. Their homemade ice cream was fantastic. They had the (very dark)green... More

No longer there...doh! Wanted to find a good ice cream spot in the historic wharf district. Unfortunately without this place there are no alternatives nearby. Would have to go to Duvall.

My son and I had an afternoon treat one afternoon. I ordered the Key Lime Pie on a stick dipped in dark chocolate. It was good, but rich. My son tasted the chocolate chip cookie dough, then ordered two scoops. It was almost $11 for just those two things! His ice cream was terrible. Way too much vanilla. I'm not... More

Have said once before and didn't want to delete my prior trip advisor posting but I think it's acceptable to repost.
