Can't beat the ice cream but it is expensive in my opinion. Although all the ice cream shops are expensive.

Good thing the wedding was over and I didn't have to fit into my dress. I think I sampled almost everything they had. I am a sucker for fresh baked cookies, and they did not let me down..Keep up the good work.

If you have a sweet tooth, this is a great place to stop. They have giant cookies, fudge, and all sorts of other desserts. They have a wide ice cream selection, and my cone was fantastic.

Walking along Duval Street with the usual mob of people who did not get lucky enough to see the green flash at sunset at Mallory Square, we passed by this place to enjoy some light fish tacos and wine at Grunts. However we were lucky when we went back for some late night dessert! The large freshly baked cookies and... More

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 Street. The ice cream is $6 for a... 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
