Great service with a large selection. Many unique combinations. I loved the dirty sand dollar but wish I could try them all. Portions were very generous with a animal cracker on top. We sat outside and enjoyed the whole experience. We will be coming back to Sanibel and will definitely stop by here to try more flavors.

I visited here for ice cream on a recent trip to Sanibel after reading the great reviews on here. From the reviews, I was expecting a little more, but it was good overall. The place is small. There is a good amount of outdoor seating. I had the dirty sand dollar. It was kind of like coffee ice cream with malted milk balls in it. It is in a nice location close to the Lighthouse. The plan was to get ice cream and bring it to the Lighthouse to eat it, but the parking lot was completely full, so we took it back to our hotel to enjoy.

A good treat but big portions! You can choose from almost any flavor and there is always a line because yes it's that good. Take it home or sit on front porch with others trying to eat it all before it melts in Florida heat. Good end of day stop but get in line before 9 pm because they close at 9 pm but will take people already in line before they close. Fun to meet other traveler's and learn what flavor they choose, because you could never try them all unless maybe you live close.
