Better than good!!

Some of the best ice cream we've ever tasted! These little beach towns often have several ice cream and candy shops, but this one is truly exceptional. Don't let the long line deter you...it moves fast and is worth the wait!

Our party waited in line about 20-30 minutes. We got chocolate ice cream and Mackinac fudge ice cream in the waffle bowl. They make the bowls right there in the open so you can see, and you can tell that are extremely fresh. They had a lot of different varieties of ice cream, so even the choosey can find something...

We made this a "must try" based on TripAdvisor ratings and were not disappointed. On Saturday night around 930 the line was out the door and a bit down the sidewalk. However, they have an excellent system for getting people served quickly and efficiently. I am a bit "obsessed" with salted caramel ice cream and when I find it somewhere... More

We stopped in and I walked out with 2 of the biggest Caramel Apples that I have ever seen in my life...and they were so good! I also bought two of the shortbread cookies dipped in Chocolate and a Chocolate covered Oreo. Great tasting treats! The service was good but the lady helping me did stop in the middle of... More

The Dulce de Leche ice cream is a great option. The is a option of lactose free ice cream, but is not as good as the regular.

Stopped here after walking the beach. This place smells so good, you can smell it from outside. We got waffle bowls with ice cream inside. They have a lot of flavors to choose from. The fudge looks good too.

This is an ok ice cream place - it's a chair so it's not a specialty place distinct to just St. Joe. It is a tad bit pricey (+$5 for a one scoop waffle cone) so expect to shell out some cash.

This place is a bit pricey but well worth it! They make their own cones in the front of the store so you can watch...my kids really enjoyed it. The whole store smells like waffle cones which fuels your craving. The superman became a favorite in my family. We came here multiple times on our trip for it! This place... More
