Good stuff

Great ice cream! With a lot of flavorful options! Toasted coconut is a must. Prices are a little high but worth it.

We came here twice during on our vacation. Once for the delicious ice cream and the second time for the fudge. The fudge is just out of this world!!! During our second visit, a young man was singing and playing the guitar on the front porch for tips. He was entertaining and his performance added some ambiance to the visit.

The queue, the returning visitors tell the story. Everyone comes to Olaf's after eating wherever else. They sit outside on basic seats or the wall and soak in Siesta Key's island atmosphere while licking away at their chosen flavour of the creamy icecream.

Great Ice Cream, but the young man running the register seemed a lot more interested in flirting with the young ladies who were camped out at one of the tables than taking care of customers.

This is a fun homemade creamery with many creative and traditional flavors to choose from with offerings from kid size to giant waffle cones. Shakes are delicious! You can sit out and eat your ice cream family style on the long old fashioned front porch.

If you love ice cream, this is a place not to be missed. Two nights in a row we went to Big Olafs along with hundreds of other visitors. Fast service even with the long lines, lots of favors to choose and yummy ice cream. As an ice cream lover, glad I was happynto enjoy Big Olafs.
