“Great home made ice cream.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Dont miss the best ice cream around, its all home made and some of the flavors are very unique. Make sure you taste them all, they are more than happy to give samples and I found the coffee flavor (my favorite now) this way. When we have visitors from out of town we always make sure to take them here, and walk the surrounding art galleries.

“Fun and tasty”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This ice cream store is part of an art gallery. They have indoor and outdoor seating. The ice cream is very good and the atmosphere is fun and different. It is located in a tourist area with many fun shops and art galleries. A fun way to spend an afternoon.

“Home made Ice Cream in Matlacha: DELICIOUS!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

A rare find of such wonderful selections of Ice cream treats.

Walking through the streets of Matlacha enjoying the Art was really a treat with this yummy ice cream. Even Better? The men had milk shakes and sat in the shade at Great Licks while we walked, chatted and shopped!

“Excellent Homemade Ice Cream”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

This is a tiny shop on the corner of Matlacha and Pine Island Roads. The owner is an avowed ice cream addict/afficionado! The young ladies staffing her shop on a recent Saturday were friendly, sweet, and very efficient. The raspberry chocolate chip was excellent. The peach sorbet was light and mild. The caramel apple was just like fresh apple pie. A very nice local shop. Fair prices.
They also sell Paradise Gardens homemade products (vinegars, preserves/jellies, and mustards)
