I recently stopped in for the famous Key West Key Lime on a stick with chocolate coating. It was my first try at this, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The weather was so hot, and it was so refreshing.

The store was well chilled with AC and we were very glad for it. The ice cream selection was average and although good, it was too pricey for what was ordered: > 6.00 for a sundae and over 4.00 for an average sized cone.

I had my first freeze there. Piña coloda with coconut ice cream. So refreshing and yummy. I came again to enjoy the tropical treat on the scorching hot day.

Mint chocolate chunk and pistachio. Enough said!!! Homemade ice cream, great favors, including some local inspired ones like key lime pie and guana, a tropical fruit.

Seriously, 15 minutes in the hot sun with 3 hungry boys...we finally get there and it's GONE. No directions to where, no signage. What a disappointment. 😁
