Ice cream, you scream for ice scream

Olaf's had so many great flavors, it made choosing so difficult. A great family stop. Conveniently located close to shopping. My hot caramel Sunday with Oreo ice cream was the best of my vacation.

We stopped in to get a scoop of something before walking down to the beach, and chose the Salted Caramel Pretzel ice cream. It was quite tasty and there was plenty of it! :) If you need a cool treat while strolling along the shops on Siesta Key, stop in at Big Olaf's.

Stopped in for dessert after dinner in town. Great selection and great ice cream. Try the Toasted Coconut - worth the visit.

Easily the best ice cream shop in the area. Excellent service with nice variety of ice cream. We have been to olaf twice and will make another stop there on our trip. Parking is a little difficult, but we'll worth the effort. Highly recommend to all.

We usually get a Big Olaf's ice cream cone for our desert and sit on the benches or benches out front to watch the people walk by. This is in the heart of Siesta Key Village. I like the mint chip big scoop on a sugar cone or anything made with coconut. You can also walk to your left to... More

After walking around the shops on a warmish day, we were looking for a little something mid afternoon and wandered in. The staff seemed bored but accommodated me when I asked for a sample of a flavour. I ended up with the toasted coconut in a regular cone… the flavour and texture were great…. I'd have another exactly the same... More

Not being one much for ice cream, we decided to try Big Olaf. My wife had a single scoop Heath Bar and enjoyed it a great deal. I took a chance on a "trashcan" double scoop and was delighted with the product.

Pleasant staff that is eager to fill your order is the high point from our single experience at Olaf's. Maybe the turnover is slow in January, but the reputation of being fresh and homemade left us questioning both claims. We had two different flavors and both were just okay at best.The portion was fine. I hope we just hit a... More
