“Great cold ice cream but a warm welcome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Centrally located the ice cream was as good as the welcome at Scoops and Bites. Genuinely friendly staff, gorgeous ice cream flavours, probably the best we ever had. You can even taste the flavours before you commit. You will love it, especially the mango flavour.

“Wonderful Every Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

We are locals and come here somewhat frequently. Ron is always bubbly and welcoming, the place is always immaculately clean, very reasonably priced, and great selection of flavors and goodies. The banana bread slices are heavenly. Keep up the great work Scoops!

“Perfect for the Punta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

This is what living in Florida is all about. I take my children to Harborwalk Scoops many times in the evening. Sometimes to eat ice cream and watch the sunset, sometimes to eat ice cream walk the pier and sometimes to eat ice cream after a day at Laishley.
We live in paradise, and no better way to enjoy it than with a cone of scrumptiousness in your hand!

“Sweet ending to our day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2014

Enjoyed a refreshing ice cream break here after being out and about in Punta Gorda. It was a really hot day and the ice cream hit the spot. Plenty of flavors to choose from and it was served with a smile. Friendly and clean. We will be back.

“Ice cream with a view”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

This place didn't blow me away. Sure, it is in a good location with a pretty view of the harbor. The ice cream wasn't anything spectacular though. I believe the brand was Blue Bell. I think the best part of this place wasn't necessarily the ice cream, but the ambiance of the bay nearby.
