This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.

I scream for ice cream (from the Orange Octopus that is)

I have validated all other claims that the Salted Caramel (homemade no less) is ridiculously good. Others in the family equally raved about their frozen delicacy of choice; mint chocolate chip, strawberry shortcake, and dark chocolate. Try it once and you will return...no question.

We enjoyed Orange Octopus while staying directly across the street for a week in June 2015. After saving up loose change for ice-cream vacation money, our family ended up stopping here a total of 4 times during our stay. My daughters really loved the chocolate chip cookie dough, as well as red raspberry. I loved the chocolate peanut butter. I... More

Really good ice cream. The salted Carmel was delicious. Another great treat was the Orange Squeeze. They squeeze the oranges right in front of you. Can't get any fresher!

We tried the strawberry cheesecake, toasted coconut and salted caramel. The first two were delicious, the salted caramel was too salty. Good waffle cones, good ice cream. Fast and friendly service.

We had their ice cream 2 days in a row it was so good! It's also well worth the price for how much they give you! We would go here all the time if we lived there! Definitely worth one or two stops. I had their oreo, brownie, and mint chocolate chip, which were all delicious. My husband had something... More

Had to try the bourbon and honey ice cream even though I hate the taste of alcohol. Wow, what a combination. Delicious. Had it three days down here while on vacation. Ice cream without all the preservatives and simply delicious.
