Delicious ice cream

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... read 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

I was excited to take my son to an ice cream parlor that had a toy store too. Not too much of a toy store, they barely had any toys. The ice cream was good even though we ordered by number from the menu, I saw the employee look it up to see what was in it and then left... More

Friendly employees, many delicious ice cream choices. The game-toy-cool stuff part of this establishment was untidy and poorly stocked. No water fountain to wet my whistle after downing my dark chocolate ice cream. Nice selection of board games to try out.

Great little soda fountain tucked away in a strip mall. Ice cream sundaes were wonderful, and the soda jerks were very nice. Made for a nice stop on the way south
