Be aware that the scoops here are large. My daughter had trouble eating her two scoop cone. The amount of whipped cream on the sundae I got was extreme. The ice cream is very good, but we ran into some ice crystals every so often. It's a good place to bring the kids.

So delicious, and plenty of flavors to choose from! There's always a line out the door of people waiting to get in! We go every year while on vacation, MULTIPLE TIMES!

This place has incredibly wonderful ice cream! Chocolate is our favorite but the butter pecan, vanilla, cotton candy are also great! Be prepared to wait in line but the staff will move you through quickly. This is a must visit every time we go to Daytona!

Walked over one night and had the best banana split...creamy ice cream, fresh toppings, thick whipped cream and so much for 2 people for less than $6.00! It was so tasty we went back for a cone the next night. Going to make this a yearly stop!

THis was first year we stopped and were sorry we didn't try it sooner! The banana split is enough for two, with many flavors and thick rich whipped cream! It's cash only but is now part of our annual go to list!

This homemade ice cream shop has many flavors to choose from. They are very generous with their scoops and their toppings. The ice cream has a great texture and tasted good (the flavor was a little muted, but it still tasted good). My wife and I visited the shop two of our five days in Daytona, and we were pleased...

We were in Daytona for 7 days and visited Cow Licks 3 times. They have wonderful ice cream and the shop is so cute. Great idea! Great for kids too! Wouldn't go anywhere else for ice cream.

Have been coming here for 10 years. Love their ice cream and location, but it is so dirty inside! They scoop the ice cream and then you pay with cash only then they turn around and start scooping again. No hand washing and no gloves. Tables and floors are filthy and just grimy in general. After our last visit we... More

Despite a rather large crowd, parking lot was full, we were served immediately and the ice cream was good, so many favors to choose from. They even had a small game room.

This place makes all their ice cream homemade and you can tell. My favorites are the pistachio, rum raisin, and butter pecan. Be aware it is cash only but they do have an ATM inside the store.
