I live in area and it's hard to resist this summer time favorite. The have a wide range of ice cream flavors. One of the staff made a great recommendation for a flavor that included the ever popular salted caramel theme. Sooooo good. You can get cone, sundaes, etc.... Only open seasonally.

My kids and I love the Ice Cream here. It's one of the best places to go after dinner. The location is perfect. Summers are the great time to go here.

One of two great ice cream places in the small, but thriving town of Excelsior. You can dock your boat at the city docks and run in for a scoop or grab a double after the farmers market or a movie. Only open in the summer and sometimes the lines can be long, but great variety and friendly service.

Compared to other stores that specialize in ice cream, Licks Unlimited offers a bit smaller scoop for the money. They have a nice selection of flavors and cone types, and the quality of ice cream seems high. Along with a few small tables inside there are numerous benches along the sidewalks of Excelsior to sit and people-watch while enjoying your... More

It is impossible to walk through downtown Excelsior and not stop at Licks. It is as if there is a forcefield that draws you into line. There is always a line, but oh, so worth it!

Fun little ice cream joint. Only a couple of tables inside. Lots of flavors to choose from :-). It is very busy and small but charming.

This is a must stop in Excelsior. They are open seasonally and the Spring opening means summer is on the way The ice cream is great and walking down to the docks makes the whole experience perfect!
