We were visiting friends at the Villages yesterday, and they were insistent that we make this "adult ice cream shop" a stop on our tour. We weren't dissappointed! As noted in the other reviews, the owner makes fresh, home made ice cream in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic flavors. We shared the Butterscotch Cookie Crunch ice cream that was infused with Butterscotch Schnapps - it was sweet, creamy and served in a crispy home made waffle cone bowl. It was the best icecream I've ever had! And the owner came by the table to do magic tricks...he claims he has only been doing them for a year, but he's a pro!! They are in the middle of a renovation/expansion so don't be surprise if there is some construction going on during your visit. They are expanding to include a small stage (for kareoke, open mic night and magic shows). You must stop here if you live in the Villages or are just driving through!! YUM!!!

Fresh homemade ice cream. Mystic caters to adults with its alcoholic and non-alcoholic flavors. I sampled both the chocolate and white chocolate selections topped with homemade hot fudge and topped with a pretzel. Never tasted better.

The atmosphere is welcoming. Jeff, the owner, did magic tricks for us. This is one of the wonders of ice cream shops

It was our first time to go there. I picked my flavor and went to the counter and asked for a single scoop cone. The owner loudly shouted, there are no cones and you can only get ONE flavor in a bowl (I only asked for one). So I order a bowl, my husband orders his and asked how much we owe. The owner says "you pay at the register"! As we started to juggle our bowls while getting our money out, he starts yelling at me," YOU take the bowls to the table while he pays"! I was almost in tears at this point. As we sit and eat our ice cream, I hear another couple say "why is he being so rude to them"? As we eat, the owner comes out and stops at every table (except ours) and asks if everything is good. I literally felt like I was in a ice cream nazi version of candid camera. Unfortunately I wasn't. I won't be forking over money for decent ice cream just to be yelled at. Will never go back.

If you love ice cream this is the place to go. The owner, Jeff, makes regular and "adult" flavors. Adult flavors such as Chocolate Cherry and Kaluha Fudge can lift your spirits along and please your taste buds. Regular flavors may include Malted Milk Ball and Nutty Fudge. There are no artificial flavors or colors used.

Jeff in addition to making wonderful ice cream performs magic trips that amaze. Music from the 60s and 70s are playing for your listening pleasure. And the place is decorated with album covers and lava laps. We keep going back so we can work our way through the flavor list.
