“Great small shop.”

Description: This old fashioned, family owned coffee and ice cream shop is located in Captain Curt's Village a few hundred yards south of the Stickney point (south bridge). It is beside the bike and kayak rental shop. They are super friendly and have a gourmet coffee bar, 24 flavors of hand churned, homemade ice cream. It is my favorite local coffee shop! I've never left disappointed.

How can you go wrong with ice cream... this place continues the great small shop ice cream tradition. Convenient location and wonderful shakes also.

We had to check out this ice cream parlor mostly because of its name. The ice cream was very good, staff was very friendly. It was within walking distance to our condo so we did have ice cream twice during our trip :-)

The kids loved the ice cream and it was within walking distance of our hotel. The espresso chip was delicious!

We walked here from our resort for brunch and found delicious fresh bagels. The lady that was working was so helpful and kind!! She told us tourists the best place to eat and all the places the local hangout!! I strongly recommend the Orange Octopus!!

Took the family to get some ice cream after a long, hot day on the beach. There is a nice assortment of flavors (some of which are unique ie Cotton candy) and the price is reasonable; even the single scoop cone/cup is a good portion size. We were able to sit on a bench out front and enjoy our cold treats. Would definitely return on our next visit to Siesta Key.
