We took a break from walking around to have an ice cream. There are many different flavors including a few non-dairy choices; four or five sizes of dish/cone. We had chocolate topped sugar cones with a small size serving which was plenty of ice cream....More

Looking for great tasting ice cream , you found it downtown Fort Myers on first. Good conversation and service with a smile. Do not forget the toffee or Carmel cracker jack as a second walking or driving treat.

Great location, great ‘home made’ tasting ice cream! Amazing choice of flavours and generous portions. Quick service considering how busy the shop was. Some seating inside (adjacent to the counter and at the rear) Definitely worth visiting if you like real ice cream!
