Go for the pie, but skip the ice cream

Title says it all. The Key Lime pie is exceptionally good with a firm Graham cracker crust and a perfect blend of tartness & sweetness. In contrast, the ice cream is flavorless and has an odd crystalline texture. The Key Lime pie costs $20, which is reasonable for an establishment on Duval... read more

We enjoyed the taste of the ice cream and a piece of key lime pie. The fresh baked cookies smelled heavenly.

We finally went in and for a cookie..I was afraid it was going to be hard as a rock..but they were just so big I thought it would be fun to... More

Definitely got to stop and get a cookie or two. I carried cookies around while I was out drinking and everyone wanted to take them from me. Great way to get girls to come up and hit on you.

This was our first stop & only real purchase we made while in Key West for the day. The sight and smell of the BIG cookies caught our attention. Once we entered, we found the ice cream. I had two scoops in a bowl and my husband had the chocolate coated key lime pie ice cream on a stick. He... More

Quaint and clean! Homemade soups and great service. Off the beaten path worth the time. I also liked the ice cream and pie for dessert.

I love peanut butter. PB sandwiches, Pb shakes, PB rice (it's awesome! African dish I ate at Boma's in animal kingdom lodge), you get it. The absolute tastiest, softest, largest PB cookie I have ever had is right here. It is spectacular. The place had friendly staff and its spotless. Great place. Don't go to key west and neglect going.

For the cookies. Awesome, huge, super moist. My husband has them with milk. The cookies are fresh and warm out of the oven. My whole family loves them. A little pricey but worth it. I've also sampled the fudge - very good too.

This store has wonderful cookies, not cheap, but large delicious cookies. I don't even remember seeing the candy as I saw the large chocolate chip cookie and had to have one.

We picked this place due to trip advisor reviews. The Key lime pie is really good, but ice cream and sorbets were only ok. In line with the pricing the portions are large.
