Description: 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, fresh baked goods and 26 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.

Initially arrived when the shop was closed but our curiosity to take a closer look at the historic black and white pictures hanging on the wall brought us back and we were quite glad we did come back. Had a very nice conversation about the shop's setting, historical background, and the work that goes into their ice cream recipes. Truly... More

We love ice cream and this is by far the best we've ever had!!! We had a big group and they serviced us quickly and gave... More

Delicious ice cream, and fabulous service! They were extremely friendly and it's such an adorable place. There are several cute shops in this little village to check out as well.

This is a great little place to get hand-scooped ice cream. The young man waiting on us was so patient while we tried a few flavors. The pumpkin had a true pumpkin flavor, with nuts in it. No reason to go anywhere else!

Orange Octopus is still fabulous ice cream shop with excellent service! However, what a huge disappointment to find out they are no longer carrying the scrumptious Amish pastries! Along with many others, this was our very favorite daily breakfast spot for coffee and a treat. We hope you'll consider bringing those back so we can put you back on our... More

Stopped in for a late night snack and we were not disappointed. Great selection and the cones were huge! Sea salt Carmel was my personal fav but everything we sampled was delicious. Very reasonably priced epically for what you get. I would pick O.O. Over other ice cream shops on the island any day.
