Great ice cream shop

Tons of ice cream flavors to choose from, all great tasting. Get a cone or sundae or shake. You can get fudge or chocolate candies or caramel apples. It is right on the boardwalk. Enjoy!

After moving here from Michigan I was tickled pink to see a Kilwin's in Madeira Beach at John's Pass. Their waffle cones are fresh and crisp and their toasted coconut ice cream is to die for! They make some of the creamiest fudge you will ever eat, and coming from an area where there are hundreds of fudge shops, that's... More

Loved watching and learning how the fudge is made. We always stop in to say Hi when we are in town. We enjoy the variety of fudge and candy made right there. And we always leave with ice cream :)

Their ice-cream was delicious, their waffle cones delightful and you should definitely try the white chocolate crispy!! And I really liked the fact employees actually suggested flavors and options making your visit warmer and rush free. I thought my bill was Little high at the beginning but after trying them, every dollar was worth it! :D

Best ice cream ever. They make the waffle cones in house and the aroma draws you in. Always busy. Also pricey but what the heck, get what you pay for.

We stopped in here to satisfy a sweet-tooth craving. The staff was exceptionally friendly and patiently waited for our indecisive kiddies to pick out some treats. I indulged In a chocolate-covered Twinkie---sinful, I know but was worth every calorie. We were glad we stopped in!

I was walking Johns pass and wanted some quality ice cream and decided to stop in here during the walk. Had a nice single serving of the dulce de Leche in a waffle cone. The cone was one of the best ones I've had and the ice cream was delicious. I am happy the ice cream did not leak through... More
