I tried the toasted coconut and the banana crunch flavors and decided on the toasted coconut. It was so good in the wafflecone. I had 1 scoop and it was huge!

Amazing ice cream and many other chilly treat here. I had the blueberry cheesecake cone which was super creamy and delicious. They have so many choices and also sell T-shirts - definitely worth a stop!

They didn't have soft serve ice cream when we visited, so we got a couple scoops of their butter pecan ice cream. I was pleasantly suprised at the fresh creamy taste. Look forward to visiting them again.

I got the birthday cake ice cream and loved it! So good. They do ice cream right. Located near the heart of the restaurant scene of Siesta this is an easy stop after a meal. Places to sit right outside (or inside) or you can walk around with it people watching.

We stopped by Olaf's almost every night on our trip. We didn't get our dessert at restaurants just so we could eat here. The line looks long, but don't be alarmed! Their staff knows what they are doing and were fast with their delivery. Even with long lines, we never had to wait that long and oh, it is worth... More

Enjoy homemade hard packed ice cream made with love and served with a smile. Big Olaf is expensive, but worth each lick! It is a delight to the tastebuds that will have you coming back to try another flavor.

Several people recommended Big Olaf's. The line indicated the same. Nope. Ice cream was expensive and mediocre. I will not return or recommend.

Lots of flavors to pick from. So many unique flavors. Enjoyed the almond amaretto because it has actual slivers of almonds throughout the ice cream. Other person in party had the birthday cake ice cream and they made the comment "it's like eating a birthday cake". Great place to visit on a steamy hot day.

Had some amazing Toasted Coconut Fudge, Kids had icecream. We were pleased that they were open later than anticipated!
