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. 😁

WOW, this place is fantastic. GREAT for the kids/family to "see" them make the home made fudge, and all those great pies. Sample any thing you like = no problem! 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.
