Orange octopus is as good as it gets. Fresh high quality ingredients and delicious flavors. Local and family run. Can't beat it. I love the bourbon pecan, key lime pie, chocolate peanut butter and salted Carmel. You can't go wrong.

Delectable ice cream - flavours are to die for, original and fun! Everyone will find something to their liking. The little quiet area outside on the corner of the building is really nice to sit in to enjoy the ice cream, too!

The flavors were the most flavorful ice cream I have ever had. All made in house. The best ice cream I have ever had. Would come no matter what time of the day!

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.
