One of the best chocolate peanut butter ice creams I have had and I've tried many! They had some unique favors too like Kentucky Bourbon that my husband tried. You can definitely tell that this is homemade. 2 thumbs up for sure!

We cannot miss a visit to the Orange Octopus anytime we are in Siesta Key. By far, this is the best ice cream! Our favorites include the Sea Salt Caramel, Toasted Coconut, and Cotton Candy!

Delicious, homemade ice creams with many flavors to choose from. We tried almost every flavor on vacation and were not disappointed.

The place to go in the middle of siesta key near Captain Curt's. Try the gator feet or superman. They are all good.

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.
