“BEST ICE CREAM!”
Reviewed June 28, 2014

Best Ice Cream on the Island!! Beware, the portions are HUGE. A small is a typical medium where we are from. We enjoyed going here almost every night and sitting outside. The lines are long but they move fast.

“Overpriced”
Reviewed June 25, 2014 via mobile

Purchased 3 stuffed croissants and two bottled drinks for $20. I was expecting amazing croissants for the price, however they were the same as ones I have purchased for $2.50 elsewhere. AVERAGE!

“Great variety of ice creams”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

While on Sanibel Island we stopped for an ice cream. There are 4 sizes, kids/small/med/large. We both chose the small. My gosh they put two huge scoops of ice cream in that small cup. It did cost $4/each but lots of product for the money.

I had the Sanibel Krunch. Which was yummy. Think of a the Girl Scout Cookie, Somoas'. Toasted coconut and pecans.

My friend had purple cow which is chocolate and raspberries. Both were delicious.

“Picnic and Gluten Free Too”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

This creative and well put together spot has a nice selection of options to take out. I got chicken salad and it was terrific, just what I needed. House made baked goods and more. Also, great suggestions from the cheerful staff on gluten-free options. I would be happy to return anytime.

“Yummy Delight”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

We purchased the ham and cheese as well as the bacon, egg and cheese stuffed croissants. They were outstanding! We also were tempted and purchased one of their Banana Nutella Chocolate Crodoles(c) which was also the bomb....I don't think you can really make a bad choice. So go for it!
