Many options to choose from including some unique flavors. Has fudge also, but we did not try it.. Good enough to keep going back!

Olaf's is a family tradition after dinner. It is the best ice cream in the world. (or at least in my opinion)

It was a very warm day and after a few hours on the beach, ice cream was the perfect treat. So many flavors to choose from, so indulge yourself and get a few if you're hungry enough ~ you won't be disappointed.

The reason Olaf's does well is the location. Publix own brand is as good or better. If you want regular ice cream go across the street. Phenomenal gelato a couple of doors from Olaf's

Always a great place to grab ice-cream for a walk on the beach. Always very very busy BUT the staff moves people in an out very quickly so you don't actually wait in line that long. CASH ONLY.

All around Sarasota there are ice cream, frozen yogurt, and gelato stores. This is one of the best. A full range of flavors - from very traditional to really inventive. Good size servings, great waffle cones. And if you want fudge, they meet that demand as well. Good value. Great taste.

Busy ice cream place in the heart of Siesta Key. SO MANY FLAVORS, and the staff is happy to let you try before you buy. Portions are decent and ice cream is delicious! Cute ledge area to sit and people-watch outside-- gets busy at night.

Best ice cream hands down. Lines out the door all hours of the day.. My favorite is the coconut/choc chip and almonds like an Almond Joy. Mom loves Rum Raisin and pistachio. Don't postpone joy! Head to Big Olafs!

Good ice cream. Even though the lines can be a little long, they get you through quickly. The chocolate dipped waffle cones are good as well. Yum!

With lots of flavors the ice dream hit the spot on a hot afternoon. The ice cream was certainly premium equal to or better than the best you could buy in a supermarket.
