Quaint little shop where we stop often (too often maybe) for an ice cream treat. Their ice cream is home made, & very yummy. Recently stopped by for the pumpkin spice, which they always have around Halloween & Thanksgiving.......my favorite. Also love their coconut ice cream. Lots of choices, & a fair number of tables. We usually enjoy our ice... More

From the first visit to this quaint ice cream shop, with its real old fashioned wood floors and the modern tiled walls with sailboats, I took a liking to it. The ice cream is homemade and always good. The sandwiches are fresh and tasty. It's fun to walk to cubby's, and then linger enjoying ice cream on the outside stools... More

Been coming here for about 10 years. Use to bring the grandkids for ice cream every other week. Slowly started to come here less and less. The severs could be nicer and more enthusiastic. Strange smell in store. I think it's paint or lacquer. Beat up furniture. Not as clean as it once was. Went last Sunday, closed. Sign said... More

Had lunch there, only one other table taken so we had our choice of tables. Had the Cuban pressed sandwich, it was okay, very heavy on the mustard. My partner had the french dip, the roast beef had a very strange texture, kind of like bologna, the au jus and roll were very good but the roast beef was just... More

This place is a great place to stop and cool off in the summer heat. My teenage daughter's favorite is 2 scoops on a cone and mine the chocolate milkshake. For lunch, we both like the pressed Cuban sandwich and while it truly is the best in town, I have had better. Still better than at the "Cuban" restaurant here... More

That's what we were told by locals, and we have to agree. Right in the heart of historic downtown Punta Gorda. Variety of food items on the menu. Great ice cream! Excellent stop for lunch.

I am lucky enough to work right around the corner from Cubby's. It's great to get out and take a walk during the day and it led me right into their front door! The ice cream was delicious and the staff were very friendly!

We only tried the Cuban sandwich that they claim to have the best and were very disappointed. It was a bread sandwich with great flavor.....little meat. If we have the chance we will try them again and ask to at least double the meat.

I challenge anyone who has seen the most recent promotion about another ice cream shop being the best in the country to giver Cubby's a try. In my (and many friends and family) opinion Cubbys wins hands down. REAL homemade ice cream.

I stopped many times for ice cream, sometimes with just my wife, and sometimes with a crowd. The ice cream is fine, but the service is spotty. The last and final time I was there I ordered my usual waffle cone, and the teenage worker served me a cone where the top of ice cream was just about level with... More
