“Home Made Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

On our first visit, we had an ice cream lunch. Sanibel Crunch (gluten free) and Rum Raisin. Both great. Great treat on a hot day. Big front porch with lots of benches and chairs to savor your treats. On our second visit, about 16 hours later, we had coffee, their signature "blossom croissant" and maccaroons (gluten free) and chicken salad (gluten free). They should sell the blossom croissant to hospitals. We're sure it could heal the sick. Its filled with chocolate, cream cheese, berries, but not too much filling, just right!

“Try the watermelon sherbert!”

Don't miss this fabulous spot, but make sure you don't arrive at rush hour! The line winds out the door and down the sidewalk!

“Ice cream perfection!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

Great ice cream stop after beach time. Great variety. Generous portions...one scoop was plenty...nice servers...friendly and helpful. My sweet friend said, "I want this at my wedding" to their flavor....if only there was a way to ship it! Can't wait to visit on my next Sanibel trip.

“Mmmmmmm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Good range of ice cream flavours, with some unusual combinations. Generous portion for a small cup. Popular for a good reason!
