Orange Octopus was a quaint little shop where we found such a delight! Such tasty homemade ice cream that took me back to my childhood and sitting atop an old-fashioned ice cream maker, waiting for it to stop churning. The best was when you opened...More

We have had ice cream at several of the places on the key. I rate this the best - they all have good ice cream but the staff is friendlier, more graceous and the prices are less.

Whenever we have out of town guests we're sure to introduce them to a tasty treat at Orange Octopus. So good! It's home-made ice-cream and dare I say, even better than Big Olaf on the other end of the key. Give it a try -...More

Orange Octopus always has the best ice cream and friendliest staff. They usually have an off the wall flavor that they created. We live just over the bridge so we visit weekly.

An ice cream shop with friendly team members, delicious ice cream and the entire place smells like freshly made waffles. What's not to like? Definitely best dessert place in the area.

My family and I visited here, and we all loved the homemade ice cream. The salted caramel was so delicious. I highly recommend it. My son really liked the chocolate chip cookie dough, and my daughter loved the Superman. Fast and efficient service! I will...More

I love the vast selection. Pistachio is my favorite ice cream flavor and they had it! It was very creamy and had a wonderful flavor. However, for another 75 cents, I could buy a whole pint of Ben & Jerry's Pistachio, which I like more...More

After having had dinner at Captain Curt’s Seafood, we decided to have a little ice cream dessert at this place since it’s in the same shopping area as the restaurant. Fantastic ice cream - key lime pie, cookies and cream, and peanut butter were the...More

There are several ice cream parlors in the Sarasota area and my wife and I have visited most of them. All of them come highly recommended. Who doesn't like ice cream? We prefer the Orange Octopus because it is closer to our condominium than any...More

Our family enjoyed five very good scoops of ice cream for a great dessert. The ice cream cream is rich, creamy, and cold. We definitely recommend!!!

This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.
