The home made / hand made ice cream here is the best I've had. The prices are reasonable. The service is fast and friendly. The Kentucky honey bourbon flavor is fantastic and a great example of the creativity of the flavors. You might even get...More

Good selection of premium ice cream at a reasonable price. It is kinda small though so you might have to eat your ice cream outside. The decor is pretty dated but the Ice Cream is terrific!

We've been going to the Orange Octopus almost every day each time we have been to Siesta Key and are now on our 4th trip in 6 years. The ice cream is consistently delicious and generous in size and the staff are always friendly. Our...More

Orange Octopus was a quaint little shop where we found such a delight! Such tasty homemade ice cream that took me back to my childhood and sitting atop an old-fashioned ice cream maker, waiting for it to stop churning. The best was when you opened...More

We have had ice cream at several of the places on the key. I rate this the best - they all have good ice cream but the staff is friendlier, more graceous and the prices are less.

Whenever we have out of town guests we're sure to introduce them to a tasty treat at Orange Octopus. So good! It's home-made ice-cream and dare I say, even better than Big Olaf on the other end of the key. Give it a try -...More

Orange Octopus always has the best ice cream and friendliest staff. They usually have an off the wall flavor that they created. We live just over the bridge so we visit weekly.

An ice cream shop with friendly team members, delicious ice cream and the entire place smells like freshly made waffles. What's not to like? Definitely best dessert place in the area.

My family and I visited here, and we all loved the homemade ice cream. The salted caramel was so delicious. I highly recommend it. My son really liked the chocolate chip cookie dough, and my daughter loved the Superman. Fast and efficient service! I will...More

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.
