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.

Only liking ice cream but married to an ice cream aficionado of serious repute, I can report that the instore made ice cream at Orange Octopus is the best ice cream in Sarasota. The owners are also wonderful people.

Quaint little handcrafted ice cream shop in Captain Curts Village. Honey Bourbon is to die for but lots of other great flavors. Love eating local on vacation. Definite stop.

The ice cream is very creamy and flavorful. You can really taste the flavors because they have bits and pieces of it in the ice cream.

Great local ice cream and coffee spot just feet from the beach. Good variety of flavors for kids and adults. A nice escape from the heat and humidity.

Wide selection of flavors and top quality! Great choice after lunch or dinner at Curt's next door. Good value, fun toppings and stuff for kids, plenty of flavor choices to keep the adults happy.
