We LOVED our stop at Tropical Vibes Cones & Bowls! We were cruising to the Western Caribbean with a first stop in Key West. We had no official excursion planned, so we just walked the town (and eventually Uber'd to the Southernmost point landmark). We...More

We have been back to Tropical Vibes multiple times on both of our trips to Key West. It is the only place we can find actual Hawaiian shave ice. We were told that they actually got their equipment from Hawaii. My husband can tell the...More

We've always wanted to try rolled ice cream so we were pretty excited to see this next to our dinner restaurant. Also my son loves shaved ice more than ice cream so it was awesome that they offer both. The rolled ice cream was great....More

This rolled ice cream is so good. I got the Salty Pretzel Caramel flavor. It was so yummy. Watching her make the ice cream rolls is part of the fun. Cute shop. Friendly staff. I’ll be back for more of this!

We visited Key West in early November of last year and found this place by accident. Great Hawai'i style shave ice. We had ours with ice cream underneath which they roll by hand and topped with some tropical syrups. Very refreshing in the hot weather....More

Best shaved ice - the real Japanese, or Hawaiian kind with finely shaved ice - not the gritty pebbly ice cones! Friendly staff and the hand rolled ice cream was also delicious. We went there every day of the four days. On days without the...More

I stopped here as soon as I got off our cruiseship for breakfast, hoping it would be a true authentic açaí bowl. Seems like everywhere I go now they mix it with something (not the way a Açaí bowl should be) today I was PLEASANTLY...More

I guess once you have tasted a very good açaí bowl and at a very good price , everything else seems ok or pricey. $10.95 based price then $0.50 cents per additional toppings. Did not try their roll ice cream - looks good. Service is...More
