Huge variety of ice creams, with very generous scoop sizes! Also worth trying the ice cream shakes - I had a caramel & Reece's pieces one 😊😊

We stopped in for ice cream at this amazing ice cream and candy store in Siesta Key Village. I had the chocolate dipped cone and it was so yummy! We also bought some of the fudge, which was incredible! Best ice cream in town!!

We have visited this branch before and just had to pay a call whilst on vacation. A massive range of fudge and ice creams all look great. My fav is black cherry milk shake well worth the cost and lovely. Service good and seating area nicely air conditioned.

Now that season is starting expect lines out the door while visiting Siesta key and stopping for that special treat. People stop here for mid afternoon snack or after dinner dessert and most people sit outside on the benches and enjoy that great ice cream...you've got to try it at least once!

Tasty ice cream, a variety of sugar and waffle cones (variously chocolate dipped). A nice selection of flavors, it is good for a stop once during vaca.

After watching the sunset we went to eat ice cream. We all had a cone of ice cream and to our surprise the scoop is a HUGE one. It is a lot of ice cream.

Big Olaf in Siesta Key village has the best ice cream and is a nice break from shopping. Cone helpings are a good size. Some indoor seating available.

Absolutely fantastic ice cream portions are huge and reasonably priced for being in a tourist trap. Don't eat at the restaurants they are all of poor quality but eat here after all ice cream is all you need to survive the island's Sahara of decent restaurants! Best ice cream ever !
