Great Midwestern treat in Florida! My husband is from up North and introduced us to this yummy treat. Not only is the custard delicious, the owners are terrific, friendly and professional. In the course of a 2-day stay, we had to go twice. We loved the soft custard cones that were enormous. For families with young children, there is a fun play area for the kids. Big plus.

This family run establishment goes above and beyond to satisfy their customers. Their specialty yogurt, custard and ice cream is exceptional. We tried malts, sundaes and cups of yogurt regularly on our six week visit to the area. Flavors are abundant and toppings are creative and delicious. There are also smoothies and lactose free, sugar free and fat free treats to satisfy all tastes. Nathan's hot dogs are served too with different toppings and we sampled a delicious chicken salad one day for lunch. There are a few tables inside for dining as well as an outside area with a cute playground area for young children. The owner, his wife and their two beautiful children should be commended for making this place so special for the community they serve.

First of all, this place is adorable from the outside and very welcoming from the street. Secondly, their soft serve custard is to die for. Nuf said.

The soft serve ice cream was good. Funky little business that tries to make the most of being a soft-serve place. There's a drive-through option, which seems clever. They also have a huge menu of mix-in items so you can order a "twister" which is really just like a milkshake. DeNucci's also offers an array of flavorings like "key lime" which just tasted odd and synthetic.

A nice menu, great value and large portions. We ate inside, but they also had a drive-thru window and a walk-up window. We had ice cream, but the hot dogs looked great too - maybe next time. Several ice cream flavors in soft serve, multiple flavors in hand scooped and several fat and lactose free flavors as well. Lots of toppings and add-ins to make your own creation. The service was great and friendly. The place was clean and well-lit. It appears to be a locally owned family business, the kind I like to find. Be sure to check it out when you are in the area.
