“Line out the door, must be good!”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

Always a great place to grab ice-cream for a walk on the beach.

Always very very busy BUT the staff moves people in an out very quickly so you don't actually wait in line that long.

CASH ONLY.

“Better Than Expected”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

All around Sarasota there are ice cream, frozen yogurt, and gelato stores. This is one of the best. A full range of flavors - from very traditional to really inventive. Good size servings, great waffle cones. And if you want fudge, they meet that demand as well. Good value. Great taste.

“So many flavors!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Busy ice cream place in the heart of Siesta Key. SO MANY FLAVORS, and the staff is happy to let you try before you buy. Portions are decent and ice cream is delicious! Cute ledge area to sit and people-watch outside-- gets busy at night.

“Always great!”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

Best ice cream hands down. Lines out the door all hours of the day.. My favorite is the coconut/choc chip and almonds like an Almond Joy. Mom loves Rum Raisin and pistachio. Don't postpone joy! Head to Big Olafs!

“It's good ice cream”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Good ice cream. Even though the lines can be a little long, they get you through quickly. The chocolate dipped waffle cones are good as well. Yum!
