Very Cool Place

Take a moment to read the menu before you order...Unbelievably delicious options! So good I wished I had two stomachs. This place is also a game store; They have 100+ games for sale AND samples available to play before you buy.

I hadn't been here in a good while. Ice Cream is good as always. I remember they used to have menus on the ice cream counter. Didn't see any this time, and should have asked. The website still has them up, and all kinds of good ideas in those menus. Anyway, got a scoop of ice cream. it was good.... More

They have an antique soda fountain. Also played Popeye the Sailorman cartoons in black and white on the TV. They have an assortment of games available for purchase.

Great ice cream with a ton of variety! The shop itself isn't much to look at and could benefit from some design changes and music. They sell some unique games and old fashioned candy but I wouldn't say the shop stocks with the soda shop theme or offer a great space to enjoy with others. The soda jerks were friendly... More

We've visited LP several times & very happy each time. The staff is friendly & willing to offer suggestions. Our group included dairy allergies & vegans. LP had options for everyone. No one was disappointed!! The shop also has homemade candy (yummy!) and fun toys available for purchase. Highly recommend visiting Lofty Pursuits!!

They make their own hard candy, they have a soda fountain, they have 30+ unique flavors of ice cream and all of this is surrounded by a toy store. How could you not like this place? They have a multiple page menu of sundae and ice cream specialties. Friendly service with some tables and chairs inside plus some stools are... More

Found this quaint little spot after looking for " ice cream near me". My hubby & I love to share a banana split from time to time & this was such a great find on cross country trip. We look forward to returning. Highly recommend this nostalgic gem!

Very neat place in Tallahassee. Ice cream had good flavor. It's a little pricey in my opinion. I made my own sundae with 2 scoops of ice cream and a few toppings and it was about $8.

This place is fantastic. Bottom line. The ice cream, the sodas, the floats, all of it - AMAZING. You won't find another place like this for 500 miles. And the staff - they're friendly, knowledgeable, and almost religious about their product. This is one of those places that will eventually be on a Food Network episode. I should also mention...

Authentic soda fountain!!! Attention foodies lol... eat here! Locally owned by nice owner, who is almost always on site. He truly cares about his business and customers and does a lot for the local community and schools too. Fun ice cream; puzzles on the tables to play with, good for families and kids. And. Amazing egg creams, and floats, and... More
