This is the best ice cream ever. Came here 3 times in a week. They seem to fill the cone with ice cream, so you get more than just the scoop on top of the cone. Chocolate peanut butter is the best

Ice cream is so delicious! They sell gift cards. Seems busier at night but going late afternoon there is no wait. Staff is very friendly. Don't forget to tip!

We went here a couple of times, during our visit to Siesta Key and have to say they had excellent icecream. I had keylime icecream, which tasted so much like a slice of pie, to die for. My father and brother liked the dutch chocolate ice cream and butterscotch flavor very much as well.

The Orange Octopus simply has the best ice-cream on Siesta Key FL hands down!! Our children and grand children's a must stop. Outstanding ice-cream flavors, friendly locally owned shop. Great location easy walking to many near buy restaurants, bike rental, boat rental etc. Indoor seating available and limited outside seating, parking shared with other business's at the strip mall.

Many, many different flavors. Near Captain Curt's in their plaza. Some wonderful old time Siesta Key photos on the wall. Many different, unusual ice cream flavors available. Price is right for the serving size.

They must make this ice cream with laughter, memories and sugar because it was amazing! A little on the pricey side but what the heck...your doing on vacation!

My family and I enjoyed our visit to the Orange Octopus. My husband tried the Kentucky Bourbon, I had the Key Lime Pie, and the kids had cookie dough and mint chocolate chip. Everyone loved the ice cream and the staff were willing to let the kids sample a few flavors before they made their final selections. The homemade waffle... More

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.
