And lots of people agree as it's usually busy! We spent a week on St Pete's beach and I think we hit Larry's for dessert four nights in a row. Yes, the vacation pounds started adding up but it was well worth it!!! The Chunky Monkey is the best!!

My husband and I came here for ice cream. The ice cream was incidentally delicious, but the experience was ruined by the service. We were sitting next to the owners who were watching Fox News. Something about the congressional black caucus and the owner stated "black people are stupid, if they want to be like white people . . ." and continued on a rant about the congressional black caucus and black people. They were only about 5 feet away from us, and we thought it was a completely inappropriate comment to say WHILE CUSTOMERS ARE IN THE STORE. They also had an African-American employee in the store within earshot. When my husband approached her and stated he was offended, she tried to defend herself but reiterated that "they are stupid if . . . ," etc. The only correct answer here would have been a swift apology.

we are at St Pete Beach on our honeymoon. we walked to Larry's this afternoon from our hotel. what a treat! so many flavors to choose from! we narrowed it down to 2 scoops on a waffle sundae. they were the best sundaes we've ever had! we are from the north and used to ice cream from Friendly's. Larry's beats out Friendly's hands down! great little shop to visit. we will be back on our next trip down on our 1st anniversary!

The Gelato and the ice cream are very good. The one big issue is the price. For 4 of us to eat some dessert, the bill was about $25. That is a little steep to me. However, if this is strictly based on the food, it is a 5 star!
